Training week 04, AKBAN Ninjutsu

By Yossi Sheriff

Fourth week of Ninjutsu training year

In accordance with the Detant principles of movement and Combat Mindfulness in duress, this week we will incorporate falling and Ukemi practice (gradually and cautiously) in slightly more challenging situations towards control in 3F states.

To this Ukemi practice we will add another throw .The Attack Sabaki basics we learned last week, will be joined with the advanced hand work we learned last year (please bring boxing gloves).

We will not neglect the upper levels of our art, the ability to control combat with a low level of violence, and will learn another arm lock.
