Shomenuchi Ikkyo!

Tonight, after a quick warmup we worked on shomenuchi ikkyo. It's a basic art and is on the rokkyu and gokkyu tests that are coming up. We did several variations including a nage version, illuminated with a bokken (tenkan, right hand between uke's hands on the bokken, spin uke around, left hand comes up to uke's right elbo for ikkyo, and slide forward for the throw). We also practiced shomenuchi iriminage which is good for randori.

We also had birthday throws for M.R. and Z.

I was a bit under-powered tonight but never sat down for a round.

Weight: 305
