Today, August the 1st, we start the AKBAN Blitz in the dojo.
The Group will train in two parallel paths: all session randori and aerobic Daken Taijutsu.
The choice of path is an AND Gate of the practitioner and me. Within the confines of the Gate one can move from one path to the other.
Those that have been at it for more than 30 years, do the same, Himum, Kamae and randori the whole session. For those that joined us this year, we video the randori for debriefing, slow motion it and send it individually to the practitioners.
Things to bring: No Hakama, just long pants and black teeshirt. Please bring full boxing gloves and water.
At the hottest and most humid month, after one month Blitz, we engage in a training session that demands not only extreme fitness but also correct and careful technique.
Twelve months of the yearly training cycle always finish with the infamous AKBAN 120. In the AKBAN 120 we spar in one minute rounds, different partners each round, for two hours, 120 minutes, non-stop.
The “120” will take place in Tel Aviv, this Wednesday, August the 30th, between 6PM-8PM.
I’ll send the exact location on our WhatsApp groups.
As Ran shows in the video, this is AKBAN Tel Aviv in August, be prepared for high humidity. Bring water and protective equipment.
