Kumi Tachi 5 and 6

A.O. sensei lead weapons class, tonight. We worked on kumi tachi 5 and 6 and then put them all together. Kumi tachi 5 starts just like kumi tachi 1 but continues with a corp-a-corp (fencing term - I don't know the japanese term) leading to a pivoting leg strike and the mirror parry followed by a yokomenuchi. Kumi tachi 6 is... well, harder to describe. We also did some mindfulness training by working on reacting to any attack and finding appropriate counterattacks. T. and A.O. sensei demonstrated. She was really getting into it and doing well.

T. drove home again. She's getting better.
