We started training with some rolling practice. Zenpo, koho and yoko kaiten with emphasis on keeping the direction you want to move in and keeping an eye on the opponent.

Last night we had a smaller group of people on the training, which is occasionally nice because every individual gets more time with the teacher and can receive more corrections to their kamae, punching, flow...

On the last few trainings everyone was busy preparing for the upcoming Embu in Farmleigh House in Phoenix park.
The training was structured on a way that we did warmup all together, rolling and punching drills, and then kyu graded students continued with studying Kihon happo while black belts prepared for the demonstration.

Koto Ryu Koppojutsu
Tonight, after the kaiten grind we drilled some basic punching and kicking using the new training pads we now have in the dojo. We then moved on to omote gyaku and omote gyaku tsuki, looking at variations surrounding uke's reaction to being wrist locked, and how to counter, or rather, "go with" uke for a different resulting throw.
After the break we continued our study of Koto Ryu Koppojutsu Shoden Gata 虎倒流骨法術初伝型, moving on to Uranami 浦波 (inlet waves).
