Aikido Thursday Night - 11/16/17 - Wasabi Dojo

Aikido players:

John, Adam, Laura, Willie, and James

Ukemi:

Normal slaps and  rolls.

The Walk:

Twice.

Releases:

Laura, Willie,  and James worked together.

Techniques:

Adam and I worked on his Koryu Dai San with both of us in hakamas.  His was a different style than mine, so the method I use to tie mine does not really work for him.

We had issues with:

kneeling shihonage
#2 standing
#3 tanto
#6 tanto
#8 tanto
no major issues with any jo or bokken work other than issues caused by working in a hakama.

Commentary:

None of note.

Aikido Thursday Night - 11/9/17 - Wasabi Dojo

Aikido players:

Adam, Laura, Willie, and James (a new student)

Ukemi:

Normal slaps and introduced James to rolls.

The Walk:

Twice, and then Laura and Willie worked with James.

Releases:

Laura and Willie worked with James.  Adam and I did some demonstrations at the end, but we ended up doing Yon Kata releases instead of normal ones.

Techniques:

Adam and I worked on his Koryu Dai San.  We had issues with: kneeling shihonage, #3 from tanto section, Kote gaeshi from tanto, and #1 from bokken.  Not many issues, but some of them were severe.  My guess is this was a big learning night for his brain.  Usually, if someone has severe issues with a technique that he can normally do, the next time will be much improved.

Commentary:

A very similar class to Tuesday.
