Previous AKBAN Colloquiums were watched, in AKBAN’s YouTube channel, more then 70,000 views by almost 15,000 viewers at an average view time of 18 minutes. We take these astounding numbers as a token of increased interest in Traditional, combat oriented, Ninjutsu and will video and translate this event also.
Take a look at our previous Colloquiums and the Application Requirements here.
The Sixth Colloquium will deal with the way various Ryuha in Takamatsu-den deal with resistance. We will use Kata from main systems to show that some systems meet resistance with stringer resistance, some ‘go with the flow’ while others combine these two modes into an intricate reaction.
There will be some changes to our training schedule this week because of the Day of Remembrance for the Fallen Soldiers and the Independence Day.
At Tuesday, eve of the Day of Remembrance, we will train until the siren sounds at 20:00. There will be no sessions at Wednesday and Thursday.
At Friday, 24/4/2015, 09:00-11:00, we will open a new training facility at the AKBAN Kfar Bilu in memory of AKBAN student, Elik Aminov. We will do a full punching bag session and randori. Here’s a link to the event on Facebook.
At the Jerusalem, Ramat Hasharon and Tel Aviv dojo we will continue to prepare for the 6th International Ninjutsu Colloquium. Emphasizing syncopated rhythms interchanging with Nagare.
Please be reminded that we decided to change the Kukishinden Kata at this colloquium into Yangi Kaze, also known as Ryu Fu.
In most sessions we will work against kicks, and explore nagare or Daken as a reaction. The Kata groups will learn the 6th international Ninjutsu colloquium kata. The colloquium will take place at May the 1st.
Someday a human being, named perhaps Fred White, may shoot a robot named Pete Something-or-Other, which has come out of a General Electrics factory, and to his surprise see it weep and bleed. And the dying robot may shoot back and, to its surprise, see a wisp of gray smoke arise from the electric pump that it supposed was Mr. White’s beating heart. It would be rather a great moment of truth for both of them.
At the Passover holiday week there will be a session only on Sunday in Jerusalem.
We will have a Traditional Weapon Seminar in Tel Aviv Honbu dojo, at Tuesday, 7.4.2015 from 17:00 till 21:00. Here’s a link to the Facebook event page.
