Saturday September 12
10-11 am – An-shu Stephen & Rumiko Hayes teach Bojutsu Kuji no Bo #2 Dai Ni Ho (“2nd Method”) … in classical form and modern unarmed version. Open him up for strikes; cause him to move in ways that leave him vulnerable. Feint with a bo strike to the head and then quickly fire off a bo strike to the ribs… Feint with an unarmed strike to his face and then quickly fire off a punch to the ribs.

1-2 pm – Shihan Blast! Shihan Mark Sentoshi Russo tactical flinch response, Dennis Futoshi Mahoney focus; what is your intention?, and James Kentoshi Norris knife grab – is that the real problem? – each offer a 20-minute immersion into what they feel is the most important lesson they can offer today.

3:30-4:30 pm – An-shu Stephen & Rumiko Hayes teach Yondan 4th Degree sword kata Kiri Age (“Cutting up”) – Principle 2 – Combination attacks with disrupting rhythm. … in classical form and modern unarmed version. When the adversary takes the initiative and gets the jump in a strategic attack, slip his attack to the side while returning strikes at the same time – defend and attack at the same moment. Catch him at the moment of completion when he needs to regroup for his next move. The lesson of this kata is how to use timing and movement to negate the enemy’s attack.

Sunday September 13
10-11 am – An-shu Stephen & Rumiko Hayes teach Godan 5th Degree unarmed against the sword kata Ku-Ryaku (“Scoop away”)… in classical form and modern unarmed version. Move at just the right moment into just the right space so as to negate the aggressor’s speed, power, and leverage. The weapon has moved against you, and you fit in and secure it. Use positioning, leverage, and his stiff resistance to turn the aggressor’s strength advantage against him. The aggressor attempts to fight your control. Your positioning causes his strength and leverage to work to your advantage.

1-2 pm – An-shu Rumiko Hayes teaches Hachidan 8th Degree naginata pole blade techniques for 20 minutes. Shane Raitoshi Stevens teaches precision and structure of movement for 20 minutes. An-shu Stephen Hayes teaches technique perfection visualization meditation for 20 minutes.
