Archery, Shuriken & Kamae Seminar 26 March 2023
26th Mar 2023 @ 09:30 - 16:30R300
Archery, Shuriken & Kamae Seminar
Join us as we explore the techniques and principles of Archery (弓術, Kyūjutsu), Bō Shuriken (棒手裏剣, Stick Shuriken) and Kamae (構え, Posture).
We will practice various archery, throwing and taijutsu movement skills using Kamae.
Through the Kamae we will explore breathing, alignment, balance, distance, angle, timing and footwork while focusing on the safe, guarded transition between the various kamae.
“The body postures of taijutsu are more than utilitarian stances or formal ways of positioning the trunk and limbs. The kamae of ninjutsu can be best described as the physical embodiment of the mental outlook.”
– Dr. Masaaki Hatsumi
