Dojo closed

Due to the corona virus Enmei Dojo is closed for the foreseeable future. Hopefully the students will keep up with their arts by practice at home. If you have a partner, that is great. If not, there is a lot you can do on your own, like jo kata, suburi, and even going through the techniques on your own.

Of course, doing techniques on your own is like shadow boxing, and shadows generally don’t hit back. Still, if you go through the techniques slowly and carefully you can work on where your feet and hands need to be, and key points to think about as you do the technique.

There is a lot of information on the net. On our site, for example is the syllabus and a few links to videos. There are lots of videos on you tube, and while a lot of them are somewhat lacking, there is always a nugget of information in there somewhere, though sometimes well hidden.

Also, I encourage people to keep in contact with other students and staff. Avoiding physical contact where possible is great for keeping corona virus at bay, but it is far from ideal for our mental well being. Keeping in touch by phone and email can help.
