Date: 
Sunday, February 23, 2014 - 12:00 to 13:45
Room: 
Large Classroom
Student should bring: 

nagado bachi (usually larger diameter, harder "kashi" wood)
earplugs

Class syllabus: 

goal: upper body position and large strikes

warmup: dogo with Copy-Cat Compounding Considerations
- 1) kinesthetic focus on grip
- 2) kinesthetic focus on elbow bend
- 3) visual focus on upper arm
- 4) visual focus on R elbow position
- 5) kinesthetic focus on shoulders
- 6) visual focus on R L bachi tip heights
- 7) aural focus on evenness of strikes (taking turns and trying to learn from others, 4x indiv 4x group)
- 8) aural/visual focus on strike location (taking turns)
- patterns (each 8x)

upper-body position
- "erring toward beta", understanding hitting across body
-- share beta/naname sets, exaggerate "beta-esque" naname position
-- add speed, not wrist tension (keep bachi rebound)
- body position at apex
-- compare parts for R strike
--- hips
--- axis of spine
--- chest angle
--- shoulders
--- elbow
--- wrist
--- others?
-- repeat L
-- getting there from above, below, elbow-leading swoop

- lighted bachi experiment: grip, elbow, apex: associating visual and kinesthetic, others walk around to see and compare
-- beta from side, KB and student sets
-- naname from front
