High Speed video is just cool. Here is a fun throw we do against a downward and diagonal attack to the head. It may not be the most practical throw, but did I say it's FUN...and it teaches a lot about timing, distance, energy...and how to fly! :)
A student should use every tool available to them to progress their skills. There is no more honest critic than high speed video of your technique.
This Saturday, we had a great line up. Two of our students treated us to excellent examples of kyu rank testing during our regional practice. We had participants from the Eastern Sky dojo, Kokikai Ithaca, RIT as well as many members of our own dojo. After 2 hours of sweat and fun, we recognized Sensei Judy Warner for her recent promotion to roku (6th) dan. After class we got to stay and chat while enjoying some refreshments (thanks Marcella!).
Please join me in congratulating:
Aiden McNulty - 6th Kyu
Bruce Xu - 4th Kyu
Please join us on Saturday the 26th to support Hai's 6th kyu test!
