At Tuesday, eve of the holiday, and Wednesday, Shavuot Holiday, the dojo is closed.

During the sessions on Sunday, Monday and Thursday we will start, in addition to the new syllabus, ground work from Shinden Fudo Ryu.

This Friday, 26.5, A Rokushaku bo Kukishin kata. Wait for an update on the group’s Whatsapp on Thursday.

During the week we will repeat five reactions from rear hand wing block and three from front hand wing block. These eight reactions depict an activity range of 180 degrees which we will augment with straight strikes syncopations. In addition we will continue learning closing gap with Jumonji, at second timing, of drill 4.

Apologies, we are so deep into this new material that this won’t make sense to those who missed last month. I have not yet videoed the techniques of this segment.

During this week we will work with the weapons we learned this year: Rokushaku bo, Hanbo, Kusari and Kunai.
With the knife we will emphasize low level of violence.

Even though some part of the chain syllabus is video documented, most of the kata are not so this is a good chance to learn.

Sunday we train in Tedi dojo as usual.
Monday is the Seder, there will be no training.
Tuesday is a holiday, again, no training session.
Wednesday at 16:00 in Gan Havradim in Jerusalem, till 20:00.
Thursday is the weapon seminar in Tel Aviv Honbu dojo.
Please wait for updates on the AKBAN WhatsApp groups.
Happy Passover to all.
