Aikido players:

John and Adam

Ukemi:

Normal slap.

The Walk:

Not tonight

Releases:

Not tonight

Techniques:

Adam and I both worked on our Yon Kata.

Then, we did a dry run of Adam's Sandan demonstration.  And it was quite nice.  John said if it had not been for one instance when Adam forgot the technique he was supposed to be doing and froze, he would have promoted him.

I agreed with John.  We both gave him a 90% grade on the set of techniques.

We then went through and improved things.

No changes on Yon Kata

On the kneeling portion of San Kata, we worked on Shihonage.

On the standing portion, I had comments on the first technique, the fifth technique, the sixth (which is the one he froze on), and the eighth.

On the tanto portion, the fifth technique.

On the bokken portion, the fifth technique.

On the jo portion, no techniques.

Commentary:

With a trip to DisneyWorld coming up, it looks like his demo will happen around the beginning of November.
