Sanshin no Kata
Last Tuesday at Ayase, Soke had a few people ( including myself ) demonstrate the Sanshin no Kata by themselves.
We were then all instructed to practise by ourselves in the dojo.
Noguichi Shihan ( as always ) was gracious enough to pass on important aspects of tai – sabakai and te – sabaki in regards to these kata as well.
Even at this point of his life, Soke obviously still feels and wants people to recognise the importance of these kata.
We must ALL maintain vigilance in developing sound basics and do our best to practise well.
