More about the cross training. The instructors will be Ricky (Yoshukai karate), Joe Justado (kali), Bill Wayne (Gojo Ryu karate), and myself (aikido).
Ricky said he is going to do slow motion fighting – a training method to give people time to learn how to spar more effectively.
Joe is going to do disarms and locks with a kali stick.
I haven’t decided, but I might do grabs in fighting. (And yes there are good reasons to grab somebody trying to hit you.)
I don’t know what Bill Wayne will do. Last year he did sweeps. IIRC, the year before he did kubitan techniques.
