Started off with rolls.

Then it was getting used to moving while striking with the hanbo. The old hand foot and eye combination, never fails to trip someone up.

After that we did some simple scenarios,


Attempted grab, evasion and drop back into seigan
Using the hanbo to do a wrist control (ura gyaku) from a grab
Blocking 2 punches to the inside wrist.

Watching someone who has never handled a hanbo before took me back to when I first picked one up and almost instantly fell in love with how they work, even though it was a very long time before I got any proficiency with one. (Still a work in progress and I’m really happy with that.)
