Introduction

Nothing is more important than your own safety and the safety of those you train with. Please watch this video and understand how to progress through these videos to make the most out of them safely.

Preview 02:09

The environment that you train in should not be built for comfort, rather it should be as close to the natural climate you are in as reasonably possible. In this video, I explain my opinion of temperate in relationship to skill development and your own personal progress as a martial artist.

Junan Taisō Introduction
03:02

A basic exercise to lightly stretch the bicep muscle and elbow. This stretch is to be done slowly and regularly.
Stretch: Bicep to Wrist
01:23

This lesson is a basic wrist rotation. Done correctly, you want to engage the elbows and shoulders in this movement to maximize range potential and quality of stretch.
Stretch: Wrist Rotation
00:46

Junan Taisō Part 1
15:17

Junan Taisō Part 2
11:04

This is an extremely important lesson, especially for disciplines that use wrist locks excessively. This must become part of yoour regular routine. This lesson will take you through a sequence of four cardinal directions of wrist locking without losing contact of the hands.
Stretch: Wrist, four directions
03:36

In this lesson, I present two exercises for finger health. The first is basic gripping and extending the fingers as far outward as they will go. It's best practice to do this exercise with breath and abdominal tension alignement in the movement. The second exercise is gently rotating the thumb back.
Stretch: Fingers, grip
01:08

Basic Shoulder Lift Rotations
02:01

This is a basic cross body shoulder stretch where I add two variables for those with more range of motion. First, engage the stretching arm by bending the elbow and bringing the hand to the back. Second is to place the opposite hand behind the head.
Stretch: Shoulder Cross Body

Superman to Swimmer Progression
02:10

This is an advanced version of the basic 'Swimmer' where I am adding an eight pound leverage to my arms to put more load into the core. This is geared more toward people who are comfortable with long reps of core training exercises such as the swimmer, and should be avoided by students new to this type of training.

Makiwara
00:15

Makiwara: Introduction
03:54

Makiwara: Design
04:41

In this progression, you are isolating only your arms and hands when striking the makiwara. Limit the amount of body movement and keep you hips low when doing these repetitions.
Makiwara: Standing, Progression 1
03:26

In this progression the inportant point is keeping the knees over the feet with the movement. Keep you hips low, shifting side to side with each strike and do not let the knees twist.
Makiwara: Shifting, Progression 2
02:40

In the third progression, the important point is to now use correct footwork. Depending on the discipline of study, focus on incorporating proper full body movement with your strikes.
Makiwara: Stepping, Progression 3
01:58

In the final progression, the goal is to build your leaping skill - creating and gaining distance quickly while building strength and power in your legs.
Makiwara: Leaping, Progression 4
02:34

In this lesson, I present how to use the makiwara with developing basic front kicking. The important points in the first progression are to develop your grounded core and core groups, while training yourself to not rebound off the target from the kick.
Makiwara: Zenpo Geri, Progression 1
05:55

Continuing with the first progression, this version demands that you hold your kicking leg in place for several seconds versus quickly dropping it back down to regain balance.
Makiwara: Zenpo Keri, Progression 1 Advanced
02:11

This progression of the front kick involves training from a bladed stance while training to minimize excessive movement with the upper body.

Makiwara: Zenpo Keri, Progression 2
01:51

In this progression level of the front kick, we stack the previous lessons and now explore and develop our sense of distance through movement along with various striking combinations.
Zenpo Keri, Progression 3
04:20

This is the basic side kicked trained in jissen kobudo. The principles of creating a stable core during kicks can be trained from any type of side kick, what's important is focussing on this point and not bouncing off the makiwara following your kick.
Makiwara: Yoko Keri, Progression 1
02:09

In this exercise, I stack the previous two progressions and now focus on developing strong use of distance along with combination strikes. For the demonstration, I use one combination strike, but you can use as many as you wish for your own routine.
Makiwara: Yoko Keri, Progression 3
03:11

Here I present the fundamental method of training a back kick against makiwara.

Makiwara: Koho Keri, Progression 1
01:43

Here I present the fundamental method of training a back kick against makiwara.

Makiwara: Koho Keri, Progression 2
01:54

Here I present the fundamental method of training a back kick against makiwara.

Makiwara: Koho Keri, Progression 3
01:58

Makiwara: Kakushi Keri, Progression 1
01:45

This version of Kakushi Keri is done from a bladed stance with the back leg. Another version of this kick (not recorded) is kicking as in take ori.
Makiwara: Kakushi Keri, Progression 2
01:28

In this version of Kakushi Keri, we explore striking with combinations, leaping in and out and applying the kick. For the demonstration, I only use one strike, but your training can add as many as you wish.
Makiwara: Kakushi Keri, Progression 3
02:09

Chi Ishi (weighted levers) are concrete weights that are attached to a wooden pole. The practitioner strongly grips to the end of the wooden pole (opposite the concrete weight), and moves his or her wrist and arms in motions used in techniques normally used in kata or against opponents. This weighted training helps strengthens the fingers, hands, arms, and chest.
Chi Isshi
00:15

This is the first of two single handed progressions with the Chi Ishi.

Maki Age
00:13

In this video, I introduce the basic elements to the maki age kigu.

Maki Age: Introduction
02:12

Here I will present the basic progression of the maki age, rolling the wrists. With the basic rolling exercises, I use the 14 lb weight, but with exercises beyond the wrist, I move up to the 18 lb. as you will see.
Maki Age: Progression 1
03:08

The second progression for maki age is to lift the weight over the head transferring load to the shoulders while still being supported in the forearms and wrists. The most important this is to not let the weight wobble.

​Bō
00:48

In this introduction, I talk about the difference in weapon style versus training tool style I use in my own training. As well, the importance and difference that a polearm style training tool can serve in your own training. In the martial art I study, polearms play an important role in the overall syllabus so therefore it makes sense that it's part of my daily routine. If it's not in your, you should still not ignore this valuable type of training.
​Bō: Introduction
02:44

​Bō: Progression 1
07:53

In this exercise, I introduce one of the most basic techniques in fundamental bōjutsu, Bōfuri. Done with a veavier weapon at a slow and consistent pace will give you an advantage to controlling the weapon at speed, as well as conditioning your fore-arms and wrists. This is an excellent exercise.

​Bō: Progression 2

Bō: Bōfuri
03:05

Bō: Jodan Uke

In this category we will be looking at how to use medicine balls, bulgarian bags and sand bags.

Fukuro Suna
00:04

This is one of my favorite training tools to help better my Budo training and overall body strength. The small medicine ball that I use in these lessons can be easily found at most sporting goods stores, is packed with fine sand with a rubber shell, ideal for gripping.
