Jo practice

 

Do these with pause at each step and then do continuously, very slowly.

 

A holds jo for tsuki, B has jo vertical on mat, holding with left hand, in left hanmi. B shifts jo to his right to start. A does yokomen to B's knee. B raises jo, placing right hand at middle of jo and blocks strike to his leg. A strikes yokomen to left side of B's head. B raises end of jo to block, by lowering his left hand. A strikes shomen to B's head. B irimis to A's right side, puts end of jo behind A's right knee and twists A's knee out and up. (B's hands are 1/3 in from each end) A falls and B strikes shomen to his head. A blocks strike holding jo in both hands.

 

A and B are both holding jo horizontally for tsuki, in left hanmi. A tsukis at B. B parries tsuki by rotating back of jo clockwise, which causes front of jo to move in a circle. Slide back foot off the line when B does this. A raises jo to strike shomen. B steps into A with his right foot and strikes A's throat with the back of the jo. (B keeps his hand over end of jo, so A doesn't get hurt) Then B extends end of jo over A's arm, and rotates his arms (like jujinage). B's arms should be extended at the end.

 

A holds jo for tsuki, B has jo vertical on mat, holding with left hand, in left hanmi. B shifts jo to his right to start. A tsukis at B. B raises jo, placing right hand on top of jo. B blocks strike with bottom of jo; his left hand is open and pushes middle of jo. Then B does the hasso motion, twirling the jo upwards. B ends up with his left hand on end of jo, pointing at A's face, with the rear of the jo off to his side at maybe a 45 degree angle. (not with the jo vertical). A strikes yokomen to the left side of B's head. B steps back with left foot and blocks the strike. B's left hand goes down and his right hand is at head level, with palm open. Do the hasso motion and end up as above (mirror image). Now A strikes shomen. B irimis to A's right side and puts end of jo on left side of A's neck, with the other end on A's forearm. B turns to his left and throws A.

 

A holds jo in tsuki position: B holds jo vertically. Both in left hanmi. B moves the top of the jo to his right to create an opening. A tsukis to B's chest. B slides back with right foot until he is out of range: B grabs top of jo with right hand and brings jo behind his head, holding with both hands. B pauses. B steps with his right foot and strikes at A's left temple, holding jo with right hand. B pauses. A blocks over his head. B continues the strike diagonally down to his own left foot. A tsukis to B's right ribs. B turns his right foot so it points at A and slides it forward and to his left. B grabs the back of the jo with his left hand and does an ovehhead tsuki downwards to A's chest.
