All ninjas, please print out this worksheet to learn about your April lifeskill “Focus.” The kiai animal is the Eagle which we call Washi.
Weekly challenge: So far you kicked the “Name challenge” and the “Bingo Challenge” This week is the “Corona Kata Challenge!”
Your week long challenge is ready to go. This is my favorite so far! Use your creativity and skills to “make up” your very own kata. Remember, a kata is simply a pattern of moves simulating an imaginary fight.
Once completed, the kata should be DM (direct messaged) to Sensei Bill or through the Ninja facebook page no later than Sunday April 5th. The Senior Black Belts will vote. If you kata wins, you get to teach your kata to the class when the dojo reopens!
- Novice: White/Yellow/Orange. 20 moves with the basics you know
- Intermediate: Blue/Green/Purple. 40 moves with the basics you know
- Advanced: Brown/Black. 50+ moves
What you need to know. This is a personal expression, so have fun. Do some research on youtube and blend some of your favorite moves. You can use any basics, but don’t copy entire sections of existing kata. This should be original.
- Name your kata
- The kata should represent that name
- The kata can be from 20-70 moves
- It must end where it started (embusen)
- It must have at least 2 kiai. You can have more
- It must follow some type of line pattern
- Advanced only: It must have application (bunkai).
