Tanto Waza

Finally stopped coughing enough to practice (still coughing a little)!

Tonight, A.O. sensei took us through the tanto suburi and philosophy -- much different than bokken and jo -- and then we worked through the uke and nage skills for knife fighting. We all ended up with fore-arm bruised and sore knuckles but it was a good change-of-pace. It felt like some of my old fencing reflexes (poor though they were lo these many years ago) were more appropriate for this than the jo and bokken reflexes.
