Back to basics

Tonight we had 2 new adult beginners at the club so, Sensei went over the basics.

What a great lesson for a Black Belt, going back over the basic moves and refining them.
  • Ensuring that I am using the ball of my feet when moving;
  • ensuring my hips are turning correctly and delivering power;
  • feeling the harmony of one arm moving forward as the other is moving back;
  • getting into good low stances (although the carpet floor was a bit slippery);
  • using my hara to lead my moves; and, most of all,
  • allowing myself to be in the moment, become conscious and set my mind free!
A very good lesson for me.
