Horsing Around in the Arizona Sun

Horse Around? Yes! That is exactly right!

 

Each year, the Arizona Hombu Karate Dojo in Mesa Arizona hosts an annual Arizona-Utah martial arts clinic in https://seiyokaishorinryu.blogspot.com/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Shorin-Ryu Karate and Kobudo. Shorin-Ryu is one of the original forms of karate developed on Okinawa that in the past was also known as Okinawa Te, Shuri Te, and Tode. The Chinese writing used in Shorin-Ryu is significant as it translates as Pine Forest Style in Japanese, and Shaolin-Style in Chinese, indicating there is tie between Shorin-Ryu karate and Shaolin Kung Fu (Wushu). Karate was developed from Kung Fu and used by royal body guards for Okinawan royalty. Kobudo (ancient martial arts weapons) was developed by both Okinawan body guards and Okinawan peasants and uses farming, fishing and merchant tools for weapons of self-defense.

 

At the 2018 clinic in Arizona, Soke Hausel, world head of https://seiyokaishorinryu.blogspot.com/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Seiyo no Shorin-Ryu Karate Kobudo Kai, began the clinic on Friday evening (April 20th) by teaching Okinawan horse sense.

 

Huh?

 

Borrowing horseshoes from the local communities of Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, and Phoenix, the martial artists trained with tekko for self-defense. Tekko is more or less, horseshoes, stirrups, or brass knuckles that are often referred to as Okinawan knuckle dusters. These were developed by Okinawan martial artists for self-defense. Clinic attendees trained with tekko against attackers armed with knives; then trained in the kata (form) - Maezato no tekko.

 

On Saturday, attendees switched from peasants to penchin (Okinawan samurai) and trained in Sojutsu using the Okinawan spear known as yari. The members learned a long, complex kata that teaches many blocks and strikes with spear.

 

Following training with spear, the group trained in hanbojutsu - a short stick about 3 feet long, used for striking, blocking, throws and chokes. This was following by training with Okinawan nunchaku for self-defense against knives.

 

The clinic ended Saturday afternoon with many tired martial artists, Some boarded flights at Phoenix sky harbor and traveled to Utah, others to California, and the Arizona members rested on Sunday looking forward for classes to resume on Tuesday.

The prostate gland is the central a part of a male's reproductive :. It secretes fluids that aid in the transportation and activation of sperm.

This condition is treated through the use of antibiotics or non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to relieve the swelling.

Chronic bacterial prostatitis can be a condition of a particular defect inside the gland and the persistence presence of bacteria inside the urinary tract. It can be due to trauma for the urinary tract or by infections received from other regions of the body. A patient may go through testicular pain, spine pains and urination problems. Although it is uncommon, it may be treated by removal of the prostate defect then making use antibiotics and NSAIDs to deal with the redness.

Non-bacterial prostatitis accounts for approximately 90% of most prostatitis cases; however, researchers have not to establish the cause of these conditions. Some researchers feel that chronic non-bacterial prostatitis occur due to unknown infectious agents while other feel that intensive exercise and high lifting may cause these infections.
