Today is the first day of “Combo July” in AKBAN Jerusalem. The session starts at 18:00 and ends at 20:00.
We are moving to the top grass meadow, at the Wohl Rose Park of Jerusalem, opposite the Knesset. Combo July is the intense month that precedes the August combat blitz, a month with no technical lessons, only sparring, full time.
So this Wednesday, we will be using the combinations we drilled with this year, and upping the role of uke in accordance with the Ninjutsu kata principles.
This new technical frontier will leave a residue of the essence of the main kata levels in our randori.
Combo July starts! In this Tuesday session, on both the first and second sessions, we will work with gruelling set of combos to hone and prepare for the oncomming August Blitz. We are starting to give each combo a mnemonic, and I embedded a youtube that explains the process (AKA Roger Mayweather method) in Western Boxing.
All the combos we will learn this summer will be linked to their relevant Ninjutsu katas.
The sessions will conclude with Uchi komi of Hip throws.
A reminder: Our dojo has moved up for the summer. We will be training at the third floor of the school’s building because of the renovations of our dojo.
The sessions will start with kamae followed by the himum. The session ends with Randori.
I upload selected Ninjutsu lessons to the Ninjutsu training category at the AKBAN wiki.
