On Sunday 23rd April there was an Experience Japan festival in Farmleigh house in Phoenix park. Our dojo was asked to do an demonstration. It was a beautiful and sunny day and there was a great turnout. The demo went great and we would like to thank everyone that showed up and showed their support, helped out with the embu and took great pictures.

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).

The weather in Ireland has picked up a bit recently so training has become more and more demanding and sweaty. We have been starting training by drilling punches, blocks and kicks and everyone is improving steadily.
