In addition to the other techniques and methods I have mentioned in my previous posts, I wanted to mention the three primary kamae (postures) of KishimotoDi. They are really basics that I could have covered earlier, but I needed to take photos of them. Below are my (rather poor) depictions of them:
|Tekko-Gamae (Iron Turtle Posture)|
|Sagurite-Gamae (Searching Hands Posture)|
|Hotate-Gamae (Standing Sail Posture)|
These three postures are key to the applications of KishimotoDi kata, and can be found in Naihanchi, Passai, and Kusanku, respectively.
