Fusaro and others. Sensei Kanani's topic this year was on accuracy and precision in execution of technique. This is not a usual topic and while he was demonstrating everybody started to realize and remember the importance of these very fine details and there relation to every single technique; Sensei emphasized the focus on thorough self checking.  Precicion and accuracy in execution of technique in Kata and Kumite was a great reminder to all of us and to the national competitors especially. The competition was on a highly technical level and a great success.
