Just about half an hour ago, we concluded the year’s training with our own Keiko Osame (Last Training Session Of The Year). The keiko started with Jim Sensei leading kihon renshu. The the students ran through the katas that they have learnt. Today’s training was different being that most of the class time was dedicated to understanding the bunkai of Fukyugata Ichi. The students, mostly children from primary school, were eager to learn the finer points of what make the kata a fighting tool. The class was concluded with a Stranger Awareness talk by Jim Sensei and wishing everyone a Happy New Year!
