Class started with bōshurikenjutsu practice, atemi drills and tanren. After practice for Oten, we reviewed Omote Gyaku and various ukemi responses. Drawing on from this we returned to Batsugi, practising the main form along with an additional 4 henka.
For the kenjutsu section we quickly repeated Kiri Age before moving onto Kiri Sage and the first Sayugyaku.
