Training week 07, AKBAN Ninjutsu

By Yossi Sheriff

Seventh week of AKBAN Ninjutsu training year

We teach all six Ryu [1]of Takamatsu den by strata of kata. After we covered the base last year and earlier this year, we dive in with the basic tier of Takagi. In the coming week we will repeat all the kata of the base layer in this fighting method. At this point, it should be clearer how Kata such as 'Oykake dori' and 'Iki Chigay' train us to apply not only Detant S1 technique but also Detant B1.

Last week, week 6, I did not have the time to go over all the insights of the kata we learned and so I have not yet videoed the appendix for this week. I hope to photograph the appendix for the sixth and seventh weeks on Thursday. The techniques are sectioned for sitting techniques, Daken and Kansetsu waza techniques—each technique in this level individually is effective, all the techniques together, as a whole, outline unique understanding of movement and combat.
