Class Photo-Report 12/15/10 2

Brandon tried to grab onto me when I grabbed him during a multiple attacker drill
So I threw him with harai goshi (sweeping hip throw).  Sorry for the hard landing, dude.
He didn’t really want to be in the middle of the attacker circle anyway 😛
He did pretty well, though

Don’t worry, he did throw me back eventually

Working knife defenses

Working defense against a swung weapon by jamming the elbow.  I threw him to the ground right after this picture

Believe it or not, I did jam his elbow on this stab, and it was during a drill where four people were attacking one person in the middle, and one of the attackers (the person in the middle didn’t know who) had a knife.

About Noah

I began training in karate (Shuri-Ryu) in the Summer of 2006. Subsequently, I started training in judo, kobudo, and iaijutsu within the next 6 months. During my training there, I earned the rank of Sankyu (3rd Degree Brown Belt) in Shuri-Ryu, Gokyu (Green Belt) in judo, a certification in the use of the bo, and passed proficiency tests for the four tachigata of Shinkage-Ryu iaijutsu. I moved to Arizona in the Summer of 2008, and continued training and researching karate at home. I continued regular training in judo at a local club until 2010, when I was able to start training in Shorin-Ryu with Sensei Richard Poage. I have been training with him ever since, and currently hold the rank of Shodan (1st Degree Black Belt) in Shorin-Ryu under him. In addition, I began studying KishimotoDi under Sensei Ulf Karlsson in 2014.
