Owada 11/1

Fall tests are finished and we are back to regular training at the Meiryukan Omiya club.

Today we worked on 4 different tai sabaki, as well as shomen uchi ikkajo nage, and shomen uchi yonkajo osae ichi.

The Omiya Budokan mats are hard and cold, great for suriashi but not so good for beginners practicing break falls.
We started from the basic front somersault and slowly worked our way into Yoshinkan zenpo kaiten ukemi. After only about 20mins we were into ikkajonage without any problems.

It was the first time with yonkajo, so took sime time figuring out the grip. Always a tough technique to get the students to not focus on causing pain and more on breaking their partners balance. Another fun class. Visitors always welcome!

Omiya 10/4

Next week we will be holding the first tests at the Meiryukan Omiya club. With only 2 members, and the occasional visitor or 2, each and every week we have been working entirely on the basics.

It has only been 4 months, but the mother & daughter combo are ready to test for 9th kyu.

Goodluck next Wednesday!
