Re: Teachingsyllabus

I agree with teaching some technique as the class goes on. I integrate basic techniques and tai sabaki (movement patterns). I show them tenkan, etc and then do something like tsuki kotegaeshi.

Also, suwariwaza generally refers to knee techniques or knee practice. Shikko refers to knee walking in general.
