Another week of practicing from a distance to keep our skills sharp as we all practice safe distancing.

It’s hard to truly teach or learn over video given the nature of our art. We have instead been conducting guided joint practice sessions together over FaceBook Messenger Video or FaceTime.

Last week, Victor Hare and Eddie Ahmed were again joined by Kevin DeVries (an awesome Buyu from Michigan) for another sword and bo basics review. We began with kamae, movement, reviewed offensive and defensive usage for the weapons. It’s a start, plenty more to cover.

An excellent session, huge thanks to Victor and Kevin for joining the practice.

Dojo Closing till May 31, 2020:

Given the continued health concerns related to COVID-19, the leadership of Shizen-Ido Buyū Dojo have decided to continue to keep the dojo closed as per the guidelines of the MD state government.

We will continue to monitor announcements from local, state and federal public health officials over the coming weeks to determine if reopening on June 1 or sooner will be possible.

Use this time to practice by yourself. It is a good way of internalizing fundamental movements.
Stay safe out there and take care of family and loved ones during this challenging time. We look forward to seeing everyone back in class as soon as it is safe to do so.

Also, during this downtime, we are working on fundamentals remotely over Facebook Messenger video and FaceTime. If you are interested in joining us, contact Eddie directly. Be safe and be well. Ganbattene!

Dojo Closing till March 31, 2020:
Given the significant health concerns related to COVID-19, the leadership of Shizen-Ido Buyū Dojo have decided to close the dojo for the rest of the month to reduce the risk of infection to our students.
We will continue to monitor announcements from local, state and federal public health officials over the next two weeks to determine if reopening on April 1 will be appropriate.
Use this time to work on practice by yourself. It is a good way of internalizing fundamental movements.
Stay safe out there and take care of family and loved ones during this challenging time. We look forward to seeing everyone back in class as soon as it is safe to do so.

Takagi Yoshin Ryu practice for 90 mins followed by a few beers to help it all sink in. A few of us took some time after class to hang out for a few beers. Great company, great beer, great training. Might have to make this practice and beer combo more frequent than just an annual occasion.

Last week, we covered the Sabaki No Kata forms, Seoi Gakari and Koshi Nage Gakari, from Takagi Yoshin Ryu. Working on positioning, placement and kamae throughout.

Tonight, we review the two forms briefly followed by some henka.

Finally, round off the evening with rokushaku bo katas, Tsuke-Iri and Gorin Kudaki, focusing on positioning and using the 6 feet length to maintain safe distance while striking effectively.

Got in too late to catch Noguchi sensei's class so we are enjoying a cold Asahi, Kara Age and Udon while contemplating the class attendance strategy 😀

The sun set on the first day of Buyu camp 2017. San shin and Kihon Happo covered by Jack Hoban. A great way to kick off Buyu camp... fundamentals! An excellent location, training outdoors is perfect to test your Taijutsu. Looking forward to a weekend of awesome training and Buyu company.
