Jo Kata No. 1 and Some Kumi Jo Precursors
T.G. sensei had us work backwards through the last 13 steps of jo kata number 1 in small steps. First we did steps 19 through 22 then added 16, 17 and 18 followed by 16 through 22. We stepped back that way until we were doing 10 through 22 then we put it all together from 1 to 22. We also worked on some of the initial attacks in the kumi jo.
