5月2日(水)の稽古 May 2nd training

今日の稽古は一カ条抑え、特に片手持ち一カ条抑えを練習しました。

この技は特に仕手(技を行う側)だけでなく、受け側の動きも重要です。というのも、受けが仕手の手を掴む際、互いに手を動かして話そうとすれば簡単に外れてしまうからです。この技で求められるのは互いに終始正確かつ効果的に、行うことです(初心者・有段者関係なく)。最後に投技と杖の練習をして終えました。

The theme for today’s training was ikkajo (first control) and specifically we focused on katate mochi ikkajo (one handed grasp first control). This technique is particularly important not just for shite (the person performing the technique), but also for uke (the person receiving). Because the connection point for this technique is a wrist grab, the connection is easily broken if shite and uke move their arms and hands independently from thier body. This technique requires a lot of focus on both ends to perform correctly and is beneficial for beginner and advanced students equally. We finished the class with some throwing and jo (staff) techniques.
