Targeting | Distance | Rhythm | Flow
Personal refinements to improve your tai-jitsu and weapons training.

 

“A thousand days of training to develop, ten thousand days of training to polish.”
- Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings


We will focus on:
  • multi-weapons training for distance and targeting.
  • refinements in kamae, footwork, rhythm and flow.
  • body awareness and finding better balance.
  • expanded awareness of environment, body and positioning.
  • the difference between 'watching' and 'seeing'.
  • undoing bad habits and retraining your body.
