2020 has really been tough on all of us especially the martial arts community. The children’s classes went remote and have started back with a combination of in dojo and remote classes. The adult classes have resumed training again under safety guidelines as well with social distancing, masks, and cleaning touched surfaces. We have also are using some creative techniques like remaining in place, long range partner drills, kata, and Bo kata. A note to all adult members, Tuesday and Thursday classes have shifted to 6:00 – 8:00 PM. Saturday morning classes are 10:00-12:00. With a vaccine now in sight we hope classes will returnRead More →

Doshi-Kai advanced training with Matsuyama Sensei on Saturday (Nov 16) included Tai-jutsu pinning and throwing techniques against grabbing (katate dori and kata dori) and punching attacks (oi-zuki, mai-te gyaku-zuki, and mai-te).  Techniques included ude osae (arm pin), kote hineri (rotational wrist lock), shiho nage (four direction throw) and kote gaeshi (wrist turn out throw) to name a few.  Here are just a few photos of Matsuyama Sensei teaching the fine points and his student’s doing their best to follow.  More advanced training next Saturday (Nov 23) including Bo!  Thanks John O’Gara for the photos and the above write-up of the class.Read More →
