Another Oguri Sensei Class

Published by at 6:10 am under Training in Japan

For the last 3 Japan trips I have been able to go to Oguri Sensei’s Dojo to train.  This to me is a big deal because often you don’t go over the same material in a class as you do at a home dojo.  The advantage of training with Seno and Oguri when they decide to do basics is that they have seen the techniques over the last 40 plus years so they can give you a good sense of what basics were taught and why.  This is of course in no way taking away from the other instructors, however I have found many teachers going through material which is solid without explanation as to why.  This does not take away of course from the good material which they have to offer, it is as I said actions which are done because that is what they were taught.

We spent two hours going over tsuki and uke nagashi.  That’s right two hours.  It was fantastic.  I have much to work on and lots to share.  I look forward to it.

    Hello,?Mr. Anton.
    I found your blog accidentally.

    It was good training.
    We must get basic taijutsu.
    I think that the process is very important.

    Thank you.
