The Marjorie and Arnold Ziff building is basking in the lovely winter sun we are getting and looking very pretty in the process.
The students here at the University of Leeds are wrapping up their exams - best of luck everyone! - as we wrap up in our winter jackets to scout out our Easter conferences. It might be sunny but it’s still flippin cold up north!
Meet One Armed Bob!
I've had Bob (the anatomically correct punch bag) for years, but suddenly he's grown an arm. Well I say 'grown', I confess I helped a bit.
As you can see from the picture, with the arm he's useful for practising basic principles like pull/push (punch/hikite). But it's actually useful for practising all manner of variations of muchimi (sticking), a critical skill in Karate. It's also useful for practising joint locks. To be fair, the more you understand the anatomy of the arm the more I suspect you'll get out of working joint locks with Bob and his arm, on the basis that you'll be better able to imagine manipulating the arm's anatomy. I find it very useful that the arm 'flares out' at the wrist and the elbow just as occurs in a real human arm, courtesy of the knots that form those 'joints'. Clearly then I'm finding Bob's new arm a useful training tool, but perhaps the best bit is the price. It cost me £2 to make, that was the price of the plumbing tube. The only other 'ingredients' were a couple of old Karate belts I had lying around. Just cut the tube in half, tie the belts together (that knot forms the elbow), add a couple more strategically placed knots, and Bob's your uncle - or rather your one-armed training partner. …….. #karate#karatelife#karatejutsu#karatedo#okinawankarate#selfdefence#selfdefense#shorinryu#leeds#headingley#headingleykarate#muchimi#gkrkarate#kirkstall#punchbag#shotokankarate#loveleeds#leedslife#discoverleeds#iloveleeds#hydeparkleeds#leedsuni#taekwondo#gkr#shitoryu#dojo#dojang#leedsmet#wadoryu#meanwood
