Awesome. The drills provided have already made an improvement in my skills and are helping me break past barriers. I will focus on Shomen uchi shuriken Jutsu at 1.5 Ken with proper hand work. Very helpful session, It will make a huge difference in developing good hand work to improve all shuriken skills

The instructor was very descriptive with the lesson. We really appreciated the different viewing angles during the instruction. Information was clearly explained and demonstrated. I will be working on memorization of reiho, zanshin, and focusing on the "brush" technique and relaxing. The recorded session is definitely a useful tool in progressing in training; allowing us to recall on focuses of that particle lesson. It was quite enjoyable and we are looking forward to continuing our training.

Absolutely fantastic. The way Chris has everything set up makes (online) lessons actually advantageous.The lesson today was a very thorough introduction. I don't think I could ask for anything more from the lesson. I will repeat the throwing form from reiho to zanshin multiple times to make it feel natural. I will also practice throwing from jodan-no-kamae, separately. finally, I will incorporate the actual throwing into the form. (The combination of the two will come when I feel that both have become fluid movements on their own).

Besides traditional training, I didn't even know online lessons could be this effective until today. With the ability to download the recorded lesson for future review, I wouldn't be surprised if I come to prefer an online format over in-person training.
