We had three sessions this week, each focusing on a different aspect of Meifu Shinkage Ryu. The main theme was “flow”.
Monday January 25 (1 hour session)
We studied fundo kusarijutsu, going through several of the shodan kata. Particular attention was paid to the fluency of the techniques, not too fast or too slow, thus making sure that each technique transitioned correctly into the next.
Tuesday January 26 (2 hour session)
Shuriken-jutsu, with focus on handgrip, and shomenuchi using a shorter technique with lots of snap and brush. Some of the shuriken almost penetrated the double layer of puzzle mat.
Saturday January 30 (2 hour session)
All shodan waza for kusarijutsu and shurikenjutsu. Flow, footwork, as well as hip movement were studied.
