1 Friday Practices on Thu Sep 30, 2010 5:55 pm

New thread cause last one was too long.
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)
-Sojutsu (japanese spear)
-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)

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!

Well thanks to the newbies coming out last friday, practices are still a go. I would like to state however that this friday (the day after thanksgiving) is a tentative practice. assume its a go until i say otherwise, and I promise to let everyone know the minute the plan changes with enough time to let people make new plans.

On a side note, emperor Kyle may be gracing us with his presence. hopefully i'll see you guys out there! In the case that I can't make it out,Emperor Kyle will be heading up the practice.
