The JICC main hall was packed with newcomers eager to learn Goju Ryu Karate but on our side, we had already kicked off the session with 'Japanese style' warm up exercises courtesy of Toshiyuki San.
Mae and Ushiro Ukemi (both Suwari Waza & Tachi Waza) as well as Shikko followed closely before going through the following:
TACHI WAZA :
-Shomen Uchi Ikkyo (Omote & Ura).
-Shomen Uchi Irimi Nage Omote (Ura for the more advanced Aikidoka).
-Katatedori Kokyu Nage.
SUWARI WAZA :
-Zagi Kokyu Ho.
The session ended on a stretching note with Haishin Undo.
