Photo Session

During our Gasshuku we scheduled a series of photo sessions to contribute to the Shinjinbukan Manual Volume # 4 by Onaga Yoshimitsu Kaichō. In the pictures below, my deshi, Preston Flammang & Masaaki Satō, assists Onaga Kaichō in setting up the floor for the photo session.

Heisoku Dachi and Musubi Dachi

Below, Satō Masaaki demonstrates Tachikata (Standing Form): Heisoku Dachi and Musubi Dachi.

Tsuki — Hand Strike

Below, Onaga Kaichō checks the correct form and structure of the Tsuki (Hand Strike), which is based on the correct position of the Kata (Shoulder Blade) and the Waki (Flank of the body, the area between the pecs and the deltoids).

The Core Structure

In the Shinjinbukan School, Koshi (the hip) has several meanings. The pictures below illustrate the defintion of Koshi (the Core), which refers to the mid section of the body from the Waki (the area between the pecs and the deltoids), including the crotch area and all the way to the knees.

Keri — Foot Strike

In the pictures below, we see the structure of the Keri (Foot Strike). In the Shinjinbukan School, the most common Keri are done using the Kakato and the Chūsoku.

Shiko Dachi and Jigotai

The pictures below show the relationship between Shiko Dachi and Jigotai.

Naifuanchi Dachi

The body structure of Naifuanchi Dachi is very important in the Shinjinbukan School. This stance provides a very solid foundation.

Heikō Dachi and Sanchin Dachi

In the pictures below, Melanie Petrak demonstrates the relationship between Heikō Dachi and Sanchin Dachi.

After each circular step in Sanchin Dachi is completed, a torquing motion reverts the stance to Heikō Dachi.

Zenkutsu Dachi, Sakutsu Dachi and Okutsu Dachi

In the Shinjinbukan School, we pay a lot of attention to achieving a smooth transition between Tachikata (Stances). Furthermore, there is a unique relationship between several Tachikata which work together as a set.

Below Left: Transition from Shizen Dachi (Natural Stance) to Zenkutsu Dachi (Forward Leaning Stance).
Below Right: The Foot rotation from Kakato is used for Tenshin using Zenkutsu Dachi
Below Second Row: Okutsu Dachi , Sakutsu Dachi.

Neko Ashi Dachi and Uke Ashi

Next, we worked on several transitions between different Tachikata (Stances):
  — Neko Ashi Dachi to the left and to the right side.
  — Uki Ashi Dachi to the left and to the right side.
  — From Neko Ashi Dachi to Uki Ashi Dachi only with the left side
  — From Neko Ashi Dachi to Uki Ashi Dachi only with the right side.

In the pictures below, we can also see the difference in height between Neko Ashi Dachi and Uki Ashi Dachi.

Neko Ashi Dachi Variations

Below, Melanie Petrak works on a type of Neko Ashi Dachi in which one foot crosses behind the standing foot. This type of Neko Ashi is used with fast Tenshin. In the Shinjinbukan School, we practice several variations of Neko Ashi Dachi.

Neko Ashi Tenshin

Next, Melanie Petrak worked on Neko Ashi Tenshin. The pictures below were taken at fast speed.

Back To Top

   

Jigotai Tenshin

Next, we worked on Tenshin using Jigotai. During Zenshin (advancing motion), the transition between each stance begins by opening the leading foot from the Kakato (Heel of Foot).

Back To Top

Kōtai (Retreating Motion): The transition between each Jigotai stance goes through Sanchin Dachi by using Ashi Shiboru in both legs.

Kūsankū Dai

Next, Jimmy Mora worked on Kūsankū Dai. In the pictures below, we can see another variation to the Neko Ashi Dachi in which one foot crosses behind the standing foot.
