Training week 05, AKBAN Ninjutsu

By Yossi Sheriff

Fifth week of training year

This week's training topics are emotion regulation during an attack with the help of the diagonal and changing heights. We will do this with the help of the kata from the first layer (the Shodan layer) of Koto ryu, one of the schools that are the foundation of the AKBAN syllabus. This school is characterized by a direct approach, medium and high Levels of violence, relatively small number of basic blows and kicks and their clever combination with throwing to the ground and neutralizing an opponent. We will be trying to preserve the sensitivity and flow we have learned in previous weeks.
