special consideration for non-traditional (older) children
At the beginning of the training, we each practiced kumite, and then paired up with adults and practiced imitating what the adults had done. They instantly understood and embodied what they saw. Then, afterwards, the pairs made and presented their stand-up moves.
adult limit
The adult frame was a development of the practice we did in the children's frame. They would pair up and synchronize against whatever the other person moved. Then they would watch one person do a free sword dance, learn it and imitate it.
Both those who perform sword dances and those who watch and learn have their own challenges, and we also saw individual habits and areas of weakness.
Thanks again for your hard work today.
