Re: YouTube: Noro sensei's jo kata

Yes I have seen and studied that way too. A good reminder! Thank you, I will put it back into practice.
Just to know, I see Noro sensei moving a lot in circular mouvements, going up and down. I am used to see kata in more linear directions. Do other masters go that far in circular "leg" work, ashi waza?
I also see low position but Now Noro sensei recommends high positions. I usually see that low on some points of the technique but not on the changing of positions. Hope I am clear enough!
I have been doing both and I apppreciate each way as they work out the body on different aspects. No preferences.
