26 tomorrow's training. on Wed Jun 30, 2010 3:04 pm

Because tomorrow's going to have the largest turn out of any kenjutsu training Kevin and I have ever had, we are going to do our best to enforce some rules. First, I'd like to acknowledge that I'm not a very tough guy like the admins so running this like a military outfit is just not going to work. Hoever i was one of the senior instructors at my tae kwon do school for over 12 years so I do know how to run a dojo. The etiquette we're putting into place is going to be modified from an aikido dojo's etiquette so please look up proper school etiquette. As etiquette is derived from respect and self imposed discipline, the most that happens is a moment of embarrassment if someone were to fall out of line. Here however, we WILL be enforcing proper behavior. If you fuck up, you WILL run a gasser, OUR way. failure to comply will result in you being asked to leave. I refuse to teach anyone who can't follow orders properly. Tomorrow's training is geared towards honor guard so remember, if you fuck up for me, how can we tell you won't fuck up for the emperor.

I meant to post this a while back.
I get most of my equipment from

http://www.sakuramartialarts.com

they have a wide variety of martial arts equipment that is of very good quality and very affordable. You can get a functional and sturdy bokken for 7.34 + shipping-and-handling and ordering for several people at once splits the SAH into something barely noticable. They have a variety of other practice weapons, real weapons, defense equipment, uniforms and other stuff as well.

ok at this week's class, I wanna do some jujutsu. Ukemi (falling) is going to be emphasized, as will blending and off balancing. We will also be doing more dueling techniques as well as distancing and timing drills. All of this will come into play at the end when we practice the Honor Guard Kumitachi. we now have an extended period of time to get good at this so let's not take Emperor's forgiveness for granted. I wanna make Daimyo and Shogun look good for the Emperor so let's try our hardest please.

On a side note, i'm thinking of doing a mini BBQ after so if you wanna bring soda, or chips or even some meat for the grill, it will be more than welcome.

Osu!

Next Kenjutsu meeting is going to be relatively short. 12:30-1:20 will be taijutsu (open hand techniques) and from 1:30 to 2:30 will be kenjutsu. After that will be a min barbecue for my birthday. I'm bringing hot dogs, sauerkraut, cheese, and ketchup. I also have forks. Hope to see you all there!

New Times for Kenjutsu Practice. Any day that we have Night Games, We'll have Kenjutsu for an hour and a half before. If Nightgames is on a friday, you come on Friday an hour and a half early and we train kenjutsu.

Well it's been a while since i posted in this thread. now then, as most of you know, practice is now from 5:30 to whenever on fridays. If I can't make it to a practice, I will try to find a way to let you all know what's going on. There will usually be food but i can't promise it every time. There is also the chance that I may end practice early on a particular day; I will let you know if this is the case.

Things that I like to practice:

-Kenjutsu (kendo and iaido drills)
-tantojutsu (knife fighting)
-Taijutsu (mostly aikido, atemi-waza, and small amounts of what little judo i know)
-naginata
-Sojutsu (japanese spear)
-Jojustu
-Kyujutsu (the little bit of japanese archery i know)
-Shurikenjustu (me pretending i know how to throw a shuriken)
-General skills that involve these traditions but don't necessarily stem from them for application in boffer fighting, i.e. kunai dodging

I may focus entire practices on just one of these topics. If I do more than one, it will never be more than three topics per practice.

Things I recommend you bring:

-Boffer weapons
-some kind of jacket or gi top for when we do jujutsu(itchy grass)
-bokken

things you will eventually be expected to bring:

-iaito (drawing sword, must be checked for safety by me)
-belt for your iaito
-jo staff
-wooden tanto

with me you will learn to count in japanese as well as proper dojo etiquette. I won't run my class as strict as a real dojo but my hope is that I won't have to. We're all training for the same reasons: to improve our skills and bring culture into our boffer sport. Osu!

True, But i don't like the idea that Nobody's willing to attend. It'd be Best that as many of us can go as possible. Depends on whether ill be held up at school, bunch of SGA shit.. (I had a stupid moment.. Not realizing I Was There)
