Atemi Jutsu v Filipino Martial Arts
We were pleased to see Mary again after a break of several years. Mary, a karate 2nd dan, was originally encouraged to join by Jason sensei and it was good to see her back on the mat, accompanied by her grandson.
After the excitement of the Atemi session, the aikido guys had to endure a 75 minute technical session on using shiho nage from a punch (5th form). Originally I'd planned to go through the whole form (ten techniques) but there was so much to work on, we never got past the first technique!!
