We will be doing the next set of theory/philosophy topics upfront, then kihon drills, boxing comparison drills, work our way in depth through Chinto (Gankaku) & Pinan Sandan then to kumite & refereeing. As a reminder, if you have time to brush up on your refereeing terminology & gestures as illustrated in our "Speaking Japanese for Martial Artists" book, please do so. Also a new video covering off on Chinto will provide fore learning for anyone motivated given we will not spend a lot of time on Chinto's embusen. Click here for that content..
