We also worked on the basics of tsuki, keri, tenshin, such as the body mechanics of Keri (foot strike) used in the Shinjinbukan school, which are different than those used in most karate styles.

Children's Class — Reigi Sahō

The children class began with a formal ceremony. This ceremony is part of our etiquette, also known as Reigi Sahō. At the Shinjinbukan School we always execute three bows: 1) Shōmen ni, rei; 2) Sensei ni, rei; and 3) Otagai ni, rei. During children classes it is customary to bow from the sitting position.

Children's Class — Sutobi: Short Fast Jumps

Next we trained Sutobi(素跳び)or short, fast jumps. These drills targets the calf and ankle muscles which generate the jumping motion in a manner similar to a foot strike using the Chūsoku (ball of the foot).

Sutobi could be practiced with different foot stances, such as Heikō Dachi or Neko Ashi Dachi. We also practiced Sutobi in combination with 90°, 180° and 360° turns. When we pratice these turns we always use the koshi (hips), keeping balance and the correct use of the seichūshin (body center axis).

Children's Class — Sonkyo: Crouching sitting poition

In the Shinjinbukan School, when we rest in between drills we sit in a low position called Sonkyo. This position is quite challenging for beginners.

Children's Class — Kaeru Tobi: Frog Jumps

Next we trained Kaeru Tobi(蛙跳び)or frog jumps, which are executed keeping the arms extended during each jump. The core muscles generate the long far jump and also contract to pull the legs close to the body for landing. The same muscles are used to generate a proper keri (foot strike).

Children Class — Usagi Tobi: Rabbit Jumps

Finally, we also practiced Usagi Tobi(兎跳び)or rabbit jumps. It is very important to keep the body as straight as possible during each jump.
