First seven of Yon Kata


Here is another very nice demo of the first 7 techniques of Yon Kata, which we will be working on at Starkville next month.  Of particular interest (to me, at least) are the two gedan techniques, in which Eddy gets a great lift at the end and splatters poor Adrian nicely.

Yon kata at Starkville in November

This is a rendition by some of our buddies across the pond of what I'm going to be talking about at Starkville next month.  Koryu Dai Yon - also known in some groups (IIRC) as the Nage-no-Kata of Tomiki aikido.  Much of it is familiar because it is basically an "advanced" wrist releases kata, but there is enough there to occupy most of us for some years.
.
I'm looking forward to visiting this old friend named Yon for the next month or so...
