Target Training

We spent a good deal of time training ejizuki both alone and in combination. Since it’s getting more difficult to score with eji in jissen, we’ve been working on cleaning up our punches and making sure we use good form in eji. All of the drills below were practiced with various kinds of targets – mitts, pads, and humans.

  • ejizuki
  • tobikomi ejizuki
  • eji after a kick
  • eji after a combination

Jissen

  • a few rounds of free jissen

November 15, 2009

Toyonaka Dojo, 6:30 – 9pm

Individual Practice

I had some free time, so I went to the dojo early to work on a couple of things. After a good warm-up, I worked on the following:

Hokei

  • seimei
  • jinsei
  • sentai
  • tentai
  • seii
  • taii

Shadow Sparring

I had a few combination ideas I wanted to develop. Still not ready to use in a match, but interesting. Most of the things I was working on center around the idea of pushing the ooponent into a corner (I can be pretty aggressive) and then accidentally leaving an opening for him to escape. My kick is waiting in that opening.

Hokei

Since we had a small group and not many people were up for sparring, I took advantage of the chance to work with a few people on their hokei. Our newest student is still memorizing sentai, so we worked on that and polished up his sentaizuki to improve his balance and handwork. Also worked with on of the black belts on jinsei and chisei.

The usual Chinese place was closed for some reason, so we had our beer and gyoza at a similar, yet inferior, chain restaurant.
