Class Notes – February 17, 2015 – 7-Count Passing Drill & 3 of 9 Tapping

Instructing: GuroS Joe (plural)

In Attendance: Brian, Alex, Asim, Ryan, Bob, Dan, Lance & Sid

Students completed review/installation of Feeder Counters of the 7-Count Passing Drill.  While we do teach the “official” counters, both Guro Joe C. and myself have had the privilege of learning and training the system from multiple instructors so there were a variety (usually at least 2-3) options for each count.  As brought up by the class and discussed, sometimes the various options may occur at different times within the Receiver’s technique or may depend on the Feeder’s range and speed.  Lastly, students pulled both Receiver and Feeder counters from 3 of 9 Tapping.

Newer students installed and refined 3 of 9 Tapping, paying specific attention to targets, hand placement and body shifting/footwork.
