My Kenshusei Journey: Week 3

Glenn Riley at WTKO Honbu.

14 March · New York, NY, United States

Early morning training completed. Kumite drills using ankle weights followed by Kata Heian Nidan and applications (with eyes closed!!). Analyzing Oi-Zuki after class (actually updating my blog), I asked Sensei a question regarding connection in technique. Well the question was certainly answered!!

 

Osu!
