Ogane sensei build up by showing in detail the body mechanics for the right smouth and explosive koshi o Kiru.

Sensei starts by teaching how the drop movement of the body in combination with the Hil and knee action is bringing the hip in a smooth and almost automatic rotation.

It was extremely impressive how smooth and accurate Sensei use the body in his movements it was unbelievable, and we recognize his intense work from his High school and University Training with Naka Sensei.

All Sensei here present been happy to have such a deep and methodical build up for Zenkutsu, Kokutsu and Kiba Dachi which after we again recognize impressive in the transition to Heian Kata but as well in Jion and Sochin.
