ヨーロッパ夏合宿、ラプメッシュシエムス、ラトビア − ２０１５年８月１３日〜１６日
European Summer Gasshuku, Lapmežciems, Latvia — August 13 - 16, 2015
Written by Jimmy Mora
Translated by Artis Pabriks
The 2015 Shinjinbukan European Summer Gasshuku (training camp) was taught by Renshi Jimmy Mora and assisted by Artis Pabriks Sensei. This event took place from August 13 to 16 at the Shinjinbukan Dōjō in Lapmežciems, near Jūrmala, a beach resort near Riga, Latvia. This location is also known as the "Green Dōjō", because of the outdoor training conducted in a grassy uneven ground, which provides a unique experience in contrast to a perfectly even floor or soft mat.
Listed below are the Gasshuku highlights:
In attendance at this event were Shinjinbukan members from Latvia, United States, Germany and Ukraine.
Dai Ichi Kihon Gata
The Gasshuku started with a general review conducted by Sensei Artis Pabriks, which included some basic forms and techniques, such as Dai Ichi Kihon Gata.
Naifuanchi Sho Dan, Ni Dan and San Dan
Pinan Sho Dan, Ni Dan, San Dan, Yon Dan and Go Dan
The Gasshuku continued with a review of the five Pinan Kata (Forms), which originated in Okinawa and were later modified by many Karate styles. These five forms are: Pinan Sho Dan, Pinan Ni Dan, Pinan San Dan, Pinan Yon Dan and Pinan Go Dan.
Attacks (Kōgeki) and Counter-attacks (Hangeki)
Onaga no Ti is a martial arts system that is not focused on defensive moves: "Ti wa Uke arimasen", which means "Ti has no blocks". Therefore, our training is always focused on attacks and counter-attacks. During our Gasshuku we practiced different types of counter-attacks against Tsuki (hand strikes) by using several hand techniques.
Another example of a counter-attacks is the use of Keri (foot strikes) against a Tsuki.
There are different types of counter-attacks against a Keri (foot strikes) based on fast Tenshin (body motion) in order to generate enough power to throw the opponent into the ground.
The Gasshuku ended with a study of the three types of Kakie: Ushi Gaki, Hani Gaki and Hichi Gaki. First, we started with a general review of Ushi Gaki and Hani Gaki.
Next, we continued with Hichi Gaki, which is perhaps the most difficult type of Kakie.
Our Gasshuku ended with a series of free-style attacks and counter-attacks using the three types of Kakie.
Thanks to Sensei Artis Pabriks and his deshi at the Shinjinbukan Riga Dōjō for their support.
