JKA Scotland members shook off the festive season cobwebs and made their way to Dunfermline High School on Saturday 13th January 2018, where they were treated to our first national course of the year, the brown and black belt Kata course with Sensei Ohta.

 

The first hour of the course was a joint brown and black belt instruction with Sensei Ohta. We were treated to Bassai Dai. Sensei gave us all an insight to the complexities of the kata and made us very aware of the slight changes we can make, with our stances and expansion/contraction of our movement to reach a far more superior and effective outcome. An extremely enlightening education for everyone in the dojo.

 

In the second hour the class was split and the brown belts were given an indepth understanding of kata Jion by Sensei Alan Simpson from our JKA Scotland Technical Committee. The black belts were treated to kata Gankaku with sensei Ohta. This was a great class on the rotation and power needed with our hip movements to execute an effective move. Application of the kata was demonstrated and tested by the students.
