Two Day retreat – Principle-driven skill development
(Limited to 8 people)
February 28-29 - Saturday, Sunday)
Explore the application of Goju-Ryu’s foundational techniques from a Southern Chinese, principles-based perspective.
Learn two-person drills that build the skills necessary to apply Okinawan karate, with the overt knowledge of what makes them work.
Warmups, skill-building drills, and application principles from Five Ancestor, White Eyebrow, and White Crane, culminating in the learning of five discreet levels of sticky-hands training. Unlike the fixed format of Goju-Ryu’s Kakie, Wing Chun’s Chi Sau, or Taiji’s single pushing, this form of sticky-hands training allows for the building of useful spontaneous reactions from the clinch, including short (but powerful) strikes, joint-locks and counters, throws, sweeps, and leg maneuvers.
