Report from Martian Arts seminar part 2 held in Tromsø, Norway 15-17 of November
Tema for the part 2 of the seminar was also self-defense in different variations, standing fighting and little bit also on the ground.
We had also a class with kata where Shihan told us about important point in kata training, example quick moving and difference between fast and slow strong movements.
For most of the trainings we wear t shirt and shorts and practiced boxing technics with punches to the head. It was a good experience for us wearing boxing gloves and higher guards than we normally do. Shihan and Sensei also repeated the dynamic training methods for strength and flexibility as we started on at the first seminar.
The kumite part was a lot about moving around and blocking Mae geri with jelly hand and counter attack. We also worked with block of low kick and moving inn for attack after.
On Sunday after kumite training Shihan and Sensei held a referee course for us, we practiced correct flag movements and we practiced in the fighting area with fighters witch created different situations for the referees. It is a lot to learn in these training sessions for us.
If you want to be a good referee you must know the rules well and practice a lot.
In the end students were happy after this experience; we are looking forward to se Shihan and Sensei in our dojo again.
