tsukeshime bachi (usually smaller diameter, softer "hou" wood)
nagado bachi (usually larger diameter, harder "kashi" wood)
last week check-in (asking individuals)
- what was covered?
- how was it taught?
- what was effective?
- were you ever bored?
- Renshuu A review
-- Alex: neck tension, path of strike allows 100% energy
-- Jess: L grip more relaxed for increased bachi snap
-- Bevin: Timing of L upstroke determined by timing of hit rather than tempo
-- Jalynn: L strike weak in "doro"
-- Young: tension in arm, upper body causes shake at impact
-- Michelle: L "easing down" during 8th notes
-- Sam: L wrist tension interferes with whip of bachi
- medium strike: 16's Drill
-- feedback to individuals
--- Alex: distance from drum, small strike "whip"
--- Jess: height of L bachi
--- Jalynn: L whip
--- Sam: R upper arm cramped
- watch vid and provide feedback for Jess, Sam, Jalynn
-- "show don't tell"
