Ok, this is confusing! I thought this thread had had about 3 replies one of which was mine! Anyway here's the link I posted last time for how to wrap a tsuka and how to tie saego. If there is any problem with this...let me know!

The Art of Tsukamaki

Thanks,

Ok I'm gonna attempt to avoid putting my tabi in my mouth and say I thought the bo-hi groove was there to prevent the blade being stuck in a body. Rather than let blood drain out, it allowed air in as there was a degree of suction around the blade as it entered the torso. The straight thrust was often acompanied with a slight twist at the end of the motion to prevent this happening.

Of course I could have misunderstood this, but that was my impression of the the bo-hi's function.

I do have a teacher, its just he only has been suggesting very expensive blades. I was wondering if anyone knew anything cheaper the $150, prefferably under $50, thats at the very least decent.


The problem is you will get what you pay for. Any blade under $150 is likely (tho not certainly) to be poor quality. Any blade under $50 from a retailer will be unfit for serious martial arts training. I understand your frustrations of having not as much of a budget as you may wish for this, but it would be better to save and buy the more expensive blade as per your instructors recomendations than buy cheap stainless steel replicas that will break and injure you or a third party.

I realise that I have made some generalisations with the prices, but as a general guide its not that far off!

From my limited experience and perspective I would say its about how to survive, which isnt always done by fighting!

All I can suggest is watch the Hatsumi vid on Togakure Ryu where its shown. Without seeing you do it I wouldnt know where to suggest you change, and not having done this alot myself I wouldnt feel 100% confident telling you either!

Sorry I cant help anymore.

I think this is the one as it is based around a right (migi) hand grab!

Kata Ude Tonso No Kata – One hand escape practice form

The attacker uses his right hand to grab the defenders right wrist and pulls the defenders forward. The defender goes with the pull making three short, shuffling steps forward. On the third step, the defender lifts his right hand to apply an inside Take Ori wrist fold to the attackers right wrist. Defender then kicks to the attackers groin with a right instep kick, and steps under the attackers up-held right arm, turning anti-clockwise and intensifying the Take Ori wrist fold. The defender then throws the attacker forward, scatters blinding powder and escapes by dropping to the ground.

Hope that helps.

This is my understanding of Junan Taiso:

Junan Taiso

This represents the conditioning training and should be carried out in accordance with your physical condition and the surroundings that you have chosen to practice in. There are several important points in the Junan Taiso to remember. Listen to and work in harmony with your body for best results.

Keiko Mae Zen Shin – Body Massage

Shin Kokyu Sanaden – Kokyuho – Deep Breathing (Three Methods)

Ryu Tai Endo – Junan Undo – Stretching (Dragon Body Stretching)

Ashi Yubi, Ashi Kubi No Undo

Sitting with the legs crossed, do the following to each foot:
Manually turn the toes 20 to 30 times clockwise and anti-clockwise. Turn the sole of the foot upwards and raise the foots arch by pushing the thumb into it 10 times. Hold the ankle with one hand and the foot with the other and manually turn the ankle 10 times both clockwise and anti-clockwise. Lastly, hold the foot by the toes and bend them backwards and forwards 4 to 5 times.

Ashi Soko Awase Zenkutsu

Sit up straight with the soles of the feet together in your hands, placing the knees on the floor with the muscles pushing down (the elbows may be used to assist with the downward pushing motion if necessary). Repeat this action 8 to 10 times.

Ashi Hiroge Zenkutsu

Sit with the back straight, legs directly ahead and open the legs as far as possible, curl the toes back and lower the trunk of the body to the floor without bending the knees or upper back. Repeat this action 8 to 10 times.

Ashi Narabe Zenkutsu

Sit with the back straight, legs together, directly ahead of you. Stretching from the lower back, bend forward touching your knees with your chest and holding your feet. Repeat this 8 to 10 times.

Sesuji Nobashi

Lay face down with a straight body, engage the lower back, arching your body upwards, lifting your feet and shoulders off the floor then place hands on the floor. Take a deep breath and push up to increase the arc in your back, then exhale and lower back to the floor. Repeat this 4 to 5 times.

Kokjutsu

Sit in ‘Seiza’ but with the feet slightly apart, sitting directly on the floor. Then lay back slowly, face-up with both arms behind your head, and relax into this position. Repeat this carefully, 4 to 5 times.

Sushi Kata Mawashi
Sit in ‘Seiza’ and do the following:
1. Manually turn the fingers in circles one by one, clockwise and anti-clockwise, pulling them once or twice.

2. Clasp your hands together in a large fist and turn them in a figure-of-eight motion, clockwise and anti-clockwise 10 times.


3. Roll the shoulders backwards and forwards 20 times each direction.

4. Slowly rock the head backwards and forwards, ear to shoulder, left to right and roll it clockwise and anticlockwise, never completing more than a full circle. For each of these, repeat 4 or 5 times.

Heza Koshi No Kusshin

While standing, keep the legs straight, bending forward to stretch the Achilles tendon, repeat this 10 times. Stand with feet apart and bend the knees, place hands on hips and rotate them in a circle clockwise and anti-clockwise, repeat this 20 times.

Teashi No Furi Mawashi

Roll the arms forwards and backwards so that the hands touch above the head, repeat this 20 times.

Hope that helps!

I had a pair of these also, but through a different supplier (Ippon Supplies) they were ok, a bit fiddly to do the wrist straps up but ok.

In the end you get what you pay for though, and if you're on a budget than these are probably the better option.
