Key Points:

  1. A better understanding of all 4th and 5th kyu requirements is presupposed.
  2. Musubi: “Tie” yourself to your partner and keep the connection throughout every technique.
  3. Keep your posture both physically and psychologically natural.
  4. Te-gatana should be sharp and focused.
  5. Movement (not just awareness) should be more spherical as opposed to linear, mechanical movement.
  6. Zanshin (literally “remaining mind”): Your attention must remain active after the completion of each technique, and mindful of, not cut off from, your partner between techniques.
