7th Feb – Training Diary

Last night, we concentrated on kikarigeiko (light freeplay with no resistance), with particular focus on blending with yokomen uchi and chudan tsuki.  The other focus was specifically on uke skill, so lots of extra falling practice.

Then as usual we played with locks/controls.

Quick recap of what we covered;
