Shinjinbukan New York T-Shirt

After our first training session, we presented Jean-marie with a Shinjinbukan New York Shibu Dōjō T-Shirt.
In the back of the t-shirt, the kanji reads: Ti (ティー).  In the Shinjinbukan School, Ti is the essence of our Karate.

Welcome Party

We had a Welcome Party for Jean-marie at the Japanese Restaurant Kenka

Reigi Sahō is a set of etiquette and manners applied during social occasions which are an important part of the Shinjinbukan traditions.  Reigi Sahō are applied to the entire social interaction during a party, including the way we eat, serve and drink sake, an how we offer a toast.

Koshi — Hip Joint Mechanism

In the Shinjinbukan School, we use the term Koshi to define three separate concepts:
    Hip Joint Mechanism
    Core Mechanism
    Tsuki, Keri, Tenshin Mechanism

In the Shinjinbukan School, we train the Hip Joint Mechanism separately from the Core Mechanism and the Tsuki, Keri, Tenshin Mechanism.  The use of Hip Joint deals with the isolated motion of the hip joint in different directions: upward motion, downward motion, to the back, to the front, triangular motion, circular motion and more...

Back To Top

One of the examples of the Hip Joint Mechanism is the Tailbone Rotation.  This technique allows us to change the stance from high to low or viceversa.  The strength of the entire spine and the core are used to generate the vertical movement, rather than straining the knees.

Back To Top

In the Shinjinbukan School, we use a very low sitting position to rest in between training drills.  This low sitting position is also used to practice breath control and to cool down the body during intensive training sessions. 

In this case, the tailbone rotation brings the body down to the low sitting position (the resting position).  If we didnt use tailbone rotation, then, we would be putting much more strain on the knees and it would be hard to maintain balance.

Below: Next, we practiced one of the typical moves of Passai Dai by using a vertical control of the Hip joint and core section.

Kote Kitae and Uke Kata Drills

We finished our training with Kote Kitae (Forearm Conditioning), also known as Kitae Gata (Conditioning Drills).  These drills are normally practiced with partners. 

In the Shinjinbukan School, an Uke (Block) does not exist by itself.  Uke Kata (Blocking Form) is practiced to develop the correct muscle memory necessary to connect all Uke (Blocks) into one flowing line of motion.  The application of uke is really the use of tenshin in combination with tsuki and/or keri.  In other words, We do not use an uke to develop brute force, but instead to apply tenshin to generate the momentum and force needed for the final killing strike: tsuki and/or Keri.
