Re: oyo henka
I think that the labeling is a teaching technique for Saotome Sensei. I am a bit disappointed that no one from an ASU dojo commented or replied. I think that what Saotome Sensei calls kumite is a kind of free practice. Endo Shihan would sometimes show a few techniques and then call "jiyu waza" which we would do for the rest of the hour. Would he have gotten that from Yamaguchi Sensei?
