On two Saturdays in June, 2019, Sensei Nago Matsuyama taught a couple of 3-4 hour long classes. Students from other schools were invited. The first Saturday we had visitors from Haverhill Shotokan Karate-Do Club. The second Saturday we had visitors from the New England collegiate karate clubs.

Sensei Matsuyama’s classes focused on tai sabaki (shifting of the body) in karate, wrist locks followed by throwing or controlling the opponent, and bo-jutsu. The video below shows one of the tai sabaki drills.
