Just returned home from the 10am Yudansha clinic run By Renshi Jim Hart and Murray Sutherland and also Shihan Noel Francisco. This clinic is typically for older karateka and those with injuries that would make the regular Yudansha clinics impractical or intimidating. Fortunately I am not in either of those categories yet, although I have been injured in the past.
I always try to make it in to Toronto for these clinics. The instructors have many decades of experience ( each ) and we practice a lot of bunkai there. Today, for example we practiced Nage no Kata, Hen Shu Ho , Han Ten, Rin Ten and Ju Ni Shi.
All of them.
It was a great class, showing me that i have about 95% of the bunkai committed to memory, but need to review a few things still. I also managed to sprain, or break a toe. ( mine )
Randy was the only other Burlington Chito Ryu Karate Club member there. He rode his motorcycle through the rain and construction to be there-impressive.
Again, I heartily endorse this clinic. It is typically the second Sunday of the month. 10:00 am and still only 10.00
