The theme of this seminar was to study the way, forms, strike and foot work of the Kukishinden-ryū. Kacem had shown and discussed the techniques from the Shoden Gata: Seion (生音), Yume-otoshi (夢落), Suiyoku (水翼), just to name a few. The important thing to remember is to not only mimic closely the densho’s description of understanding the flow. But, also to study the understanding of the proper use of biomechanics for each waza, in order to fully see the daken taijutsu used in close range with armor.
Buki waza (武器技):
Here we cover Bōjutsu from Kukishinden Ryu Kihon Gata, which deals with the following techniques: jōdan ukemi (上段受身), ashi-barai (足払), shihō bōfuri-gata (四方棒振型) and men uchi gata (面撃型). The important thing here is to first know how to use the right and correct kamae, then the right angle for jōdan ukemi, and finally the right order for men uchigata.
