K8 and I went back to training in Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu last night with Instructor Jim Jones in Reading.
took us on a harrowing tragical mystery tour of the back roads leading
to Reading across several single lane bridges and along a variety of one
class started with a variety of rolling. A succession of backwards and
then sideways rolls later, both of which were a little trickier than
last time I tried them, showed a lack of practice.
We then moved on to a variety of applications of stances or ‘Kamai’
showing how they were different in this year’s school of study and then
turning them into a variety of throws, arm bars and takedowns.
The lesson finished with stretching and a cool down.
I had a really good time and it feels excellent to be training again. K8 and I will be going back again next week.
