Aikido players:

John, Adam, and Laura

Ukemi:

Light warm-up

The Walk:

Not tonight

Releases:

Not tonight

Techniques:

Adam and I worked on his Koryu Dai Yon.  No major issues.

Adam and I worked on his Koryu Dai San.  This was a very rough session.  We blamed it on the fact that he was wearing a white gi instead of his normal blue.  The blue gi is being altered for the upcoming demo.

Really, there were a number of issues throughout the run-through.  Some of them were "where did that come from".  Stuff he'd never messed up or weird ways of messing up.

We chalked it up to pre-demo jitters and we'll see how Tuesday goes.


Commentary:

Adam's demo is set for Thursday, Dec. 14.

Releases:

Not tonight.

Techniques:

Adam and I worked on his Koryu Dai San.  It was pretty good, with the usual suspects being problems: kneeling kote gaeshi, kneeling shihonage.

Laura then uked for Koryu Dai Yon.

Commentary:

Had a bit of an issue with some precursors to migraines.  I was afraid I would not be able to make it through class.  I made it through one rep of the techniques and then went to the sidelines.

Ukemi:

Normal slaps and  rolls.

The Walk:

Twice.

Releases:

Willie and Tabitha worked together.

Techniques:


Willie and Tabitha worked together.

Adam and I worked on his Koryu Dai San.  We did not really have too many issue.  Adam took it easy on my wrist on the troublesome techniques, so the techniques were not as solid as they could have been, but they were close enough that I took the throws to save my joints.

Adam and I then supervised the rest of W&T's workout.

Commentary:

None of note

Commentary:
Prior to class, I went and visited another dojo.  This dojo had a 9th dan in my style as the instructor.  I didn't realize someone of that stature was in our area.  He started with Karl in '64 with judo and then came back in '77 to work on aikido.

Unfortunately. the class times are inconvenient given my other class.

Ukemi:

Normal slaps and  rolls.

The Walk:

Twice.

Releases:

Techniques:

Adam and I worked on his Koryu Dai San.  We had issues with: kneeling shihonage and knife kote gaeshi.  We did enough of these two techniques that my wrist complained for a couple of days.  I really do need to continue to police the number of reps I do on these specific techniques as uke.

Commentary:

None of note.
