Haven't Posted in a Very Long Time

It's been over a year since the last time I posted anything here. At the Dojo we've mostly been working on relaxing and re-engineering our koshi principles to be in line with the way Shinzato Sensei is training now.

As usual, most training is centered around Naihanchi and the ideas therein.  It's a lot of work, and there are no quick results.

I have personally been spending a lot of time working on Shirotaru no Kun.  It's a very difficult, but exciting Bo kata.

Our class attendance is at an all time low as we near the 11 year mark, and I wonder if we have reached a plateau, if classes will pick back up in the new year, or if we should take it as a sign that it's time to move on...
