The first part
was taken over by Bernhard. He presented his reflections on the topic "Randori in the exam for the 2nd Kyu". What is the purpose of this Randori at this stage of development, in which only one person attacks (hitorigake) and which strategies and techniques can be applied? It makes sense to attack with shomenuchi, yokomenuchi and tsuki. The respective techniques from the program up to the 2nd Kyu he had individually practiced and refined. In the end, each participant performed this randori. The attackers lined up one after the other (like the Satsuma Samurai in the jidaigeki series Nemuri Kyoshiro, see below) and launched the attack of their choice.
