5th Kyu is "level 5"
The weapons covered in this lesson are the knife ("Tanto") and the Short Sword ("Shoto.") Roemke explains how variation in knife grip and cutting angles should be practiced, he describes target areas on the body for using blades against the opponent, and he discusses how range of target affects the weapon's usage (and how to avoid getting into confrontations using blades.) In this lesson Shihan Roemke also continues instruction for advanced Ukemi and Kaiten (breakfalls and rolls) as well as Nage Waza (throws.) A special section that delves into the essence of the San Shin No Kata (San Shin Gokui) helps you practice the San Shin with more complexity and energy. This is the level that the Kyusho Points are introduced ("Pain and weakness points on the body") which will be continued throughout the rest of the lessons. About 1 hour of instruction.
