Instructing: Guro Joe & Guro Lem
In Attendance: Brian, Alex, Ryan, Asim, Bob, Dan, Lance, James & Sid
Students continued working on the 7-Count Passing Drill, building on the counters to the Receiver counters (counters to the counters) from last week. Feeder Counters involved students identifying time/place to counter, as well as an understanding of how the Receiver counters work in order to best negate them.
New students continued working on Transition Drill 1 and installing 3 of 9, Scarecrowing the Vital Template.
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.
