Most of the adults have been off the whole time so we did a slow review of a few basic techniques.
shihonage, sankajo, shomen iriminage
This was the first time the whole gang got together at their home dojo.
Today we worked on koho ukemi, kihon dosa renzoku, jiyu waza.
A couple of the adults have been making trips to practice at other nearby dojos during February and March, however this was the first class back at the Kamiokubo junior high dojo.
Back to basics with koho ukemi, hiriki no yosei, hijishime, nikajo, shumatsu dosa.
The theme was the back leg, keeping it straight and strong with the heel down during all sliding movement. It is easy to forget the parts which are the furthest from our eyes. Out of sight, out of mind.
