This Sunday we will repeat Tangeki no Kata and other Ki-gata from the beginning stances. Another part of the session will be Nage waza, and especially randori variations of Ganseki Nage and Otoshi.

The session will conclude with some intense sparring combos, so we have to remember to put those punching gloves in the dojo bag…

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

1st quote

First of all don’t ever practice for something you don’t want to happen in the first place. I mean, I see guys training like, “I can hold my breath for five minutes underwater with a rock!” I don’t ever want to consciously think I could hold my breath for that long.
Don’t prepare for something you don’t want to ever happen. I think that’s a big mistake.

A reminder, we are training at our temporary dojo, 193 Ben Yehuda st. 1st floor.

This Thursday we will continue with the beginning of the year basics and elaborate on the movement specifics (Tai Sabaki) we started this week. From a better way to mobilize from Shizen tai to timing the movement in sparring.
On the Kansetsu waza part we are continuing counters to throws and today we will learn a Fudo ryu counter throw kata.
The Daken we worked with this summer are still with us, so punching gloves are a must.

Weekend quote – Amotz Zahavi

1st quote

Much of the fighting that goes on between rivals of the same species is ritual fighting;

The goal is not to injure or kill the opponent, but to convince it and others that it is the weaker and should withdraw from the contest. The initiator of the fight does not even try to surprise its opponent; rather it signals clearly that a fight is imminent and lets its rival prepare itself, only after its opponent has assumed the appropriate stance does the aggressor strike — and then only at a predicted target that does not cause a lot of damage.
