Bujinkan Ichimonji No Kamae Drill

Kamae drill from a recent class.

Focusing on ichimonji no kamae.

Getting as low as possible in the posture, paying attention to keeping the spine and head aligned and straight- no leaning over to help take the burn off the legs.

Keeping the shoulders relaxed and looking to minimize tension in the body.

Standing in ichimonji facing one direction, shifting the legs and hands to face directly behind you.

The transition of the hands to protect, going jumonji like, coordinating the feet and the arms to move at the same time.
