This clip was shot during a video night event with Matsuoka Sensei. While reviewing an old video, a student asked Sensei a question about movement. Sensei stood up and replied with a short discussion and demo related to body structure principles. This event was held as part of one of our first Shugyo (intensive training) programs.
The video in the background was a short demo of Matsuoka Sensei’s ukemi between 1989-1990.
This segment was captured impulsively with an iPhone. Video quality and lighting are less than ideal but we think the content warrants inclusion in our library.
