The dojo will be closed on Sunday, the 16th of April, for Easter.
All other scheduled classes are unchanged.
Jesse Spears throwing Tony Gaddis before class. The thumbs up at the end was attempting to get a confirmation from David that he actually got this video (we’ve had issues in the past ;).
Attacks: Mune tsuki
Techniques: Mostly Irimi nage (omote version), with a kote gaeshi in the middle.
Pronunciation and definitions:
* Mune tsuki: A punch to the midsection. Sounds like moo-nay-skee, although the last syllable starts with a barely audible “t” sound, which isn’t natural for most English speakers, so most people don’t pronounce it).
* Irimi: Entering. Sounds like ee-ree-mee.
* Nage: Throw. Sounds like naw-gay
* Omote: To the front, or in front of. Sounds like Oh-mo-tay (long O sounds).
* Uke: The attacker (or, literally, the one who is thrown). Sounds like oo-kay.
* Kote gaeshi: Wrist turning. Sounds like coat-tay-guy-she
So, irimi nage is an entering throw. Omote means it was to the front of uke.
