During this session, the focus was shomenuchi (although we did a few za-uchi as well) from different distances. The focus was on snap, brush, and on aligning the hand and arm with the target properly without overreaching and twisting the flight path of the bo-shuriken. Working on the most important technique from Meifu Shinkage Ryu always has our priority. We noticed a difference when hikite was executed properly. The last part of the lesson focused on Shomenuchi using different bo-shuriken, including Shingetsu-ryu shuriken, Negishi-ryu shuriken, tanto, MSR hanten daho shuriken, and Katori shinto-ryu shuriken. We did not work with Fundo Kusari during this session. The 2-ken distance is now progressing well for both Darren and Chris. For next training, the focus will be on grouping.
