A seminar to introduce the Ju (soft, gentle) aspect of Goju-Ryu will be presented by Rich Stamper on Saturday September 26, 2015 at the Black Swamp Dojo in Whitehouse, OH (Toledo area). Attendance will be for dan rank practitioners only and limited to twenty participants.
The seminar will be in two sessions, each approximately three hours in duration. The fundamental concepts of the Ju aspect for both controlling and attacking will be the basis of this introductory seminar. A light lunch will be provided.
The seminar is not about mawashi-uke or kaki-uke. It is not block and counter training. It is about the energy available through the use of the Ju aspect and its effectiveness. It is about concepts not usually taught. An open, receptive, beginner’s mind is required to grasp and utilize this often neglected and seldom demonstrated fundamental aspect of Goju-Ryu.
The first session will be held from 10:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. The second session will be held from 2:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M. Both sessions are to be attended as different fundamental concepts will be taught at each. The fee of $40 is to be submitted along with the application and waiver.
