Session February 24, 2015
Participants: Jay, Chris.
We had a 1 hour session today. We started off with a few rounds of throwing Ohashi. After that, we switched to The focus was foot work, as well as making sure the hip does not extend beyond its rotation point while performing Shomen-uchi. This correction assisted Jay in throwing Bou shuriken straight rather than with a half sideways twist. The adjusted foot work and hip placement was a large step forward for Jay to improving his skills.
Chris worked on Gyaky uchi and Shomen uchi, both from a short distance, making sure each Bou shuriken entered the target properly, without slamming onto the target. The last 50 throws went very well.
The next session is on February 26, already looking forward to it.
