This Sunday, starting at 18:00 at the Jerusalem dojo, we will use the Ushiro Geri and the Ninjutsu Ushiro Kaiten as a primer for spatial orientation against multiple opponents situation.

Ukemi and Kaiten waza in Ninjutsu are used in AKBAN not only as means to dissipate the energy of a fall but in the same way Karuwaza, Ninjutsu acrobatics, is used – as techniques to achieve spatial orientation.

In our academy’s syllabus a Ninjutsu somersault will be used to prepare the body and vestibular system for the high speed falls and balistic conditions of combat.

We start at the 18:00 session with Ukemi and Kaiten waza against Ura gyaku and Oni Kudaki. Using yoko sabaki we will work timing drills against front and back fudo ken.

The second session will dive even deeper into timing sequences in grappling situations. Using Fudo ryu kata from several levels we will combine striking and throws.

This Sunday we will continue practicing the second timing sequences while using the Jig sabaki stepping method.
Using this step we will explore Te Makura, Osoto gake, Fudo Ken and Ura gyaku using the Jig as a timing rather then distancing combat method.
