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...
