Every practice starts with basic stretching and conditioning of the body, followed by rolling, punching and kicking drills. These drills cover usually the first hour of instruction; conditioning is necessary to prevent injuries and develop basic skills which are the foundation of the training. Basics are trained consistently every training practice, its “mindful practice" will allow the budoka to develop better Taijutsu “ body movement” over time. The second hour is dedicated to select kata from the Densho of each lineage and it is broken down according to what is currently covered in Japan. In addition we cover what is necessary for each of the student's advancement thru the ranks. We are not" Kata collectors", rather focus on slow flow which hopefully allow us to catch the feeling. The goal is to move naturally instead of relying on memorization of techniques.
