An evening at the Yakitori House

akitori (Japanese焼き鳥) is a Japanese type of skewered chicken. Its preparation involves skewering the meat with kushi (), a type of skewer typically made of steel, bamboo, or similar materials. Afterwards, they are grilled over a charcoal fire. During or after cooking, the meat is typically seasoned with tare sauce or salt.

Last Saturday, we took our coaches and their better half (wife or partner) for a dinner.
The goal was to thank the coaches but mostly their spouses to let them train at night.

The location was the Yakitori House.
Their manager is Kan.
He is Judo black belt who trains at the Auckland University Judo Club.
We have been friends for years and we always receive us a warm welcome and special attention from him.

He also set up a menu that included:
Edamane
Salmon Sashimi
Beef
Deep fried Chicken (kara-age chicken)
Chicken and cheese yakitori
Chichen tender thigh met yakitori
Big chunky salmon yakitori
A vegetable sets of yakitori for the vegeterian.
Fried dumpling
Deep freight camenbert
Fried Squid tentacles
Prawn tempura set
Deep friend Moro bar named Moro Dog



We washed down all the food with Orion beer, sake and Japanese Sochu.

You can check their information on the below link

The first picture is the team posing with Kan.

I did not take pictures of the food we consumed but I decided to post some pictures from their facebook page just to give an idea of how nice is the food.

We are thinking to take all the team for a mid winter party.

Training report: Back Position

This week, we covered the topic of the back position for fundamentals.
This position is considered on the best position and is rewarded by 4 points (same the mount position).
We covered couple of escapes and many submissions from the back.
My favorite submission is the bow and arrow choke.
We also introduce the straight jacket system from John Danaher.
This system was created to trap one arm with your leg which means you have one hand to finish your submission attempt.

We are still taking new students at both locations.

Beginners welcome.
