Today at Meiryukan Sakado we worked on 2 techniques from this year`s brown belt test syllabus - kata mochi sokumen iriminage ichi, and suwari waza shomen uchi nikajo osae ni.
We had some fun playing around with the inital entering movement in sokumen irimi - Concentrating our power in our shoulder and maintaing our centerline while moving in. We also spent some time on pivots during suwari waza.
The Sakado summer tests will be held on Sunday, July 22nd. Application deadline is the 15th.
