Ketsumyaku

Ketsumyaku

Ian started the class tonight drilling kaiten, and moved quickly onto some basic balance breaking movements to topple uke with correct positioning and minimal effort, the foundation of soke's art. 

When Alex took over we continued our study of the Jou Ryaku no Maki (上略之巻) from Gyokko Ryu Kosshijutsu, practicing Ketsumyaku 締脈 (squeeze the pulse), revisiting a couple of Jime Waza (chokes) before we started.

We moved on from there with some henka modifying the hoshi/omote gyaku grip and footwork for the Seoi Nage part of the waza.

Congratulations to Judan Stiofán O'Conlon on his move to open a new Bujinkan Dojo in west Co. Dublin.
