Nothing In Particular
Did a class last night at NSA.
Matt started us off with what I believed he called kashima shinryu. Just started off doing a simple cut. He was doing lots more of this with Joe the other night I heard.
Then we were just experimenting with a simple wrist grab. We were noodling around with seeing what we could do with the connection. It's deceiving. You may think this a simple exercise, but it's not.
Then we moved on to another exercise. It's starts out with a shomenuchi ikkyo. But then we try to take the ikkyo over uke's 'hole', step across in front and then cast out and down.
This is one I could easily get down with some repeated practice. It has elements of a tai-otoshi. The toughest part is adjusting to wherever uke ends up so that you can off-balance him more easily.
