Tonight we’ll look at tai-sabaki for Nikkyo from strikes and grabs. We’ll focus particularly on Kata-dori Nikkyo Omote and Ura. Sensei Paul and Steve will teach half of the class. See you there!
Tonight we’ll look at tai sabaki (body movement) for Irimi-nage. See you there!
Tonight we will re-visit our learning from last weeks class with Sensei Belshaw. We will also look at our musubi – unity or connection – during ukemi. See you on the mat!
