    This was the Kenpo place, yeah. So not too terrible a loss; mostly it was just sort of embarrassing for me.

    Did 25 minutes ground randori then 25 min standing randori. I learned that I have no major back wards throw when one of our black belts used griping and strong body movement to prevent me from effectivly doing any forward throw. Then we did a question and answer for another half hour or 45 minutes.

    Now I have to split my training time between O soto gari and a lunging seoi otoshi. I swear every time I think im making progress I realize a different weakness.

    Because everyone has been so kind in posting helpful responses in the “I fought the law…” thread I feel I should reciprocate (not that this is helpful but it is responding!).


    We’re lucky in that we live near some fantastic coastline. So today we went to the beach.

    We did a ‘bootcamp’ first.

    Basically a number of different stations.

    Warm-up jog around the beach.

    1. Be pinned under partner, try to get up, No striking/biting/gouging etc. just grappling.

    2. As above but roles reversed.

    3. Basketball jumps.

    4. High kicks

    5. Fireman’s lift run carrying partner.

    6. Carry (not drag or flip) five foot diameter truck tyre (as a team)

    7. ‘Globe’ jumps (like jumping squats.

    8. Flutter kicks.

    9. Mountain climbers.

    10. Crunches.

    We did 4 rounds on each station of:

    One minute

    One minute 30 seconds

    Two minutes

    Three minutes.

    We had to bear crawl between stations.

    At random intervals a whistle would blow and we either had to run to the top of the dunes and back (think ‘Beau Geste’) or run to the river and jump in. Then run back and carry on with stations.

    Finished with tug of war. Rope eventually snapped but an honourable draw seemed the most appropriate way to finish anyway.

    After this we were suitable knackered (and soggy and covered in sand) to move on to some Krav training.

    • Started out with some grappling (Yes, we acknowledge Krav needs supplementary ground/grappling work. Luckily we have some really good BJJ guys). One person lying face down, other person mounted on their back. Person underneath has to improve position to be the one on top. Moderate striking allowed to person on top. Anything goes for person underneath.

    • Then a bit of ‘retzev’ (basically lots of punching and kicking.

    • Then disarms against opponent armed with stick from holding, chambered and actual striking positions.

    • Then back to ground fighting as before but full contact anything goes.

    Then washed blood of face with windscreen washers and off to beach café for tea and cake (We’re Brits).

    A real beasting and a real battering. Ground work on sand is “hard” especially when you’re being repeatedly punched in the face.

    A bit of puking/dry retching at the time (I’m blaming the sea water rather than my complete lack of conditioning) but in hindsight a really fun day out. I LOVE our location for opportunities like this.

    The multiple dips in the river and then crawling through sand was a bit unpleasant. Mind you we actually voluntarily jumped in afterwards to clean off/cool down (still finding sand in every orifice though).

    Do you guys do any sparring with your Kobudo stuff? I'd love to play if we ever meet at a TD.

    Fuzzy,
    No mate. Bo is taught as a Bo Pairs kata. You learn as Attacker or Defender but eventually you have to know both sides.

    Okinawan Bo. This is learned as 3 sets - Stances, Blocks, Strikes. These feed into Okinawan Bo Kata 1 and then 2 (more difficult). This feeds into Fixed Kumite (10 sets) and thence Continuous Kumite.

    Both Bo Pairs and the Continuous Kumite can be done, er, 'vigourously' but must also demonstrate control.

    There is no 'Sparring' as such.

    BTW, I also did Naginata. If you have any interest, you could look up the British Naginata Association. This is taught as fixed Kata and does lead to Sparring. I was a member and know Rachel, Mireille and Paul. They are growing and practise on Saturdays at the Britannia Leisure Centre. There is also a Kendo group (good) who also train later. They also do some wonderful Iaido.

    However, I can no longer attend as I'm usually doing Padwork and Conditioning at the same time. So something had to give :-(

    Cheers
