Bradley Kaser demonstrating Kaiten-Nage with Russell Kaufman-Pace

In the final stages of the Shiho-Nage technique, Nicole gives an excellent display of sanshin (alertness-remaining form) with Elizabeth as the uke (receiver).

Perfect placement and connection.

One holds the other with the power of intention.


Delivering a Yokomen-Uchi (Side-head Strike) toward Nicole, Pete gives his training partner energy. Nicole, in turn,  blends and receives the energy given by her training partner’s attack.



As Nicole applies the finish to the technique of Kote-Gaishi, Elizabeth prepares to tap the mat signaling the finish to the techniques application.
