Re: Bokken suburi, Jo suburi and katas demonstrated on video

Hi Chris,
I seem to have caused you slight upset upon reading your short reply. I am happy to explain: I thought the eight cuts could be followed by a thrust, which add an extra move and concentration to execute all sides. I think this is quite a normal exercise to include something extra to the original Happo Giri. I am aware of the Jo exercise and only emphasise this exercise with the ken. The principle is still within the teaching principles using hanmi, kokyu & zanchin.
