Note they fight barehanded, something we favor in TaiKi... as one is able to use more fighting possibilities than striking only...and will stay certainly more versatile. On a certain level - when there is the necessary control - one is able to do it this way and for certain purposes we use other materials like boxing-gloves too.
Investigation in Honbu made clear...the students both Seniors and Juniuors want to have more kumite encouters / more training experience in kumite or tanshu.
Senior Marco Kraan (renshi licensed) will help us organizing it. Other Seniors offered their help and sensei Jan will join too.
We want to organize this TaiKi kumite
once a month / once in six weeks...and Marco will
make a schedule. For the moment is decided the regular saturday-morning lessons will be skipped for that special moment then, as we will organize it in our honbu with it's fascillities.
Also is decided that one's budo friends from other
disciplines may join; they have to pay a little contribution. So a saturday morning from 10.00 till 11.30 hrs sharp. Follow the news on this blog /or on the Facebook taikipractitioners account...or on the Facebook taikiken-honbu amsterdam account ...and read your email messages of our firstname.lastname@example.org You can't miss it!
