The Saturday of the first weekend in March of the year is traditionally reserved for the SaCO annual course.
On March 4th, 30 athletes from eight clubs in Thuringia, Saxony-Anhalt and Saxony came together to train under the guidance of SaCO President Frank Pelny and Sebastian Edelmann.
The focus of this year’s course was the use of Tonfa. After a purposeful warm-up, the handling training with tonfa and the practice of attack techniques followed. Then the block techniques followed, until finally everything was put together in a Tonfa-Drill in an exercise sequence.
After the lunch break, Sebastian Edelmann explained the basics of regeneration in a theory block. The course ended with another hour of practice using the tonfa effectively in grip releases.
