This Tuesday in Tel Aviv we will be at the temporary dojo at 193 Ben Yehuda St.

On the sessions we will use the sabaki we learned over the last three weeks to enter and use locks.

Please do not forget to bring punching gloves as we always validate our Ninjutsu with randori.
For questions, please call me at:052-5108747

The sessions start with Ninjutsu kamae followed by the himum. The session ends with Randori.

We upload selected Ninjutsu lessons to the Ninjutsu training category at the AKBAN wiki.

1st quote

You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above.
One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know

This Tuesday in Tel Aviv we will be returning to Hayarkon 294 dojo. The Thursday session will be back at Ben Yehuda temporary dojo. All the sessions in Jerusalem and Ramat Hasharon stay as usual.

We will be honing breathing patterns and relaxed body position in the extended combos we are working on.
I attached a short clip of Mr. Perfect in AKBAN taliking about these exact things.

This week at our Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Ramat Hasharon dojos (Hebrew links) we will continue working on the junction between striking and grappling. Using the Tsukidaoshi as a checking ground for linear attacking movement, and regular Ninjutsu punching mitts drills as a model for chaotic short range work, we will continue to improve our randori.
Using the opponent’s reaction on short range holds, after closing the distance, we will train with ura reactions to the opponent’s techniques.

This week at our Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Ramat Hasharon dojos (Hebrew links) we are going to emphasize alternating between linear and non-linear modes during randori.

During last month we learned another way of creating a perdictable and efficient linear attack against our training opponent. We will start to explore other ways of receiving attack and alternating between defense and offence.

In his own field, using a comletly different syllabus of modern boxing, Roger Mayweather is working the mits, doing the same thing.
