Re: Stretching

Hi Gordon,

dynamic stretches will probably bring the most improvement, simple leg raises (keeping the supporting leg straight) when warming up worked best for me. Keep statics stretches for your cool down -(these are some good statics stretches https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rp6rdtCQoG4)

Re: Can Kata from other systems be Wadoized?

Shibmori Sensei of IWKU teaches a Wado version of Anann. He would be the technical advisor i guess for Wado in WUKF. They have even included it on their Wado Tokui kata list. I learned it a while back, though i haven't practiced at all since. Can kata from other styles be Wadoized? I guess so. I thi...

Re: The only things certain in life are death and taxes.

I've done it a couple of different ways. I put the left foot out when standing up, but pull the left back instead of pulling the right foot up (moving forward). The other way was just a slight twist to the left and drop on to right knee then left and and then to come up on left foot followed by righ...

Re: How long are your lessons?

90-120 mins depending what day / location it is. When working on a team kata, 3 hours but thats more technical, not physically punishing.

Re: Been practicing Rohai of late...

I was recently at a course with Shiomitsu sensei and one point he made which really stuck in mind was that Wado is 90% jujitsu, if not more. The katas we have may be okinawan in origin but the way we perform them is to practice budo movement. At least that was my understanding ot it.
