Training week 08, AKBAN Ninjutsu

By Yossi Sheriff

Week number eight of the training year

Two Kata from Gyokko Ryu, Two Kata from Kukishinden Ryu, Two Kata from Takagi Yoshin ryu and one from Fudo.

The kata were chosen because they show different Ryu perspectives to the same scenarios. For instance, Menbu, from the next level in Takagi, was chosen because it echoes Karame dori and deals with catching kicks.

Last week, week 7, was a struggle to try to finish all the kata of the basic level of Takagi.
