Introduction to Chayon-Ryu
A new way to teach classic styles of forms and self defense is now in Bakersfield!
Basic Principles of the Month:
Keep rhythm in movements - After first understanding the overall presentation of the form (usually based on the style of origin) be sure to use rhythm as you flow from one technique to the next. Your breathing is very important, and it will help guide your rhythm. Make sure you understand the technique and its rhythm. Early forms are fairly straight forward and usually employ a simple ONE – TWO rhythm. Later, more advanced forms, will sometimes use different rhythms such as OOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEE – TWO or OOOOONNNNNNNNEEEEE – TWO – THREE.
Act according to the situation - There are two parts to this principle. First, know the environment around you. If you see a stick nearby, use it! If there is a stone or your back-pack, use it as a weapon, to create chaos or “destabilize” your opponent. Second, understand your options and act quickly. For example, if you are faced with multiple attackers, take the initiative and attack the smallest or weakest of the group. You may be able to quickly change the numbers against you as well as scare the remaining opponents and, possibly, increase distance from the other attackers.
Classes are held every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evening from 7 to 8 PM. We have recently moved the advance course study (for blue belts and above) to Mondays from 6:30 to 7 PM. Saturday classes run from 10:30 to noon. Come check out a class and see if our family is right for you and yours!
