Sensei will focus on one technique for four weeks at a time. In January we will explore koshi nage, including a yoga pose that mirrors the technique. She will share her 48 years of inspired practice. For the past three years Sensei has been working on Yutaka Mito Sensei's maxim: Feel, Become One, Make a Path, Don't Throw.
Even if you think you won’t use koshi nage back at your dojo, the solo practice of the hip movement in koshi nage will benefit all of your techniques.
Sensei is sure to get you moving, she will include jiu waza and practice fluent movement in each class. If you have a partner, that's great, but if not, Sensei will use props to help you with the alignment of koshi nage. Bring a pair of shoes and if there's a wall close by, you'll use it.
Donations are welcome but there is no charge. Everyone is welcome, Sensei recommends coming from the beginning of each four week session, so that you start with the most basic version of each technique, but feel free to drop in any time if you're just curious.
