Aikido Friday Night - 1/16/09

Aikidokas: Tim, Kim, Trey, Tom, and David (a new student).

Ukemi: The usual set. Worked with Kim and Trey to get them some practice throwing warm-up big falls

The Walk: As usual. Spent most of the session with David, helping him learn the walk. Actually spent a good portion of the time messing it up, but I eventually realized it and made corrections.


Ju Nana Hon Kata

No work on this today

Owaza Ju Pon

No work on this today

Koryu Dai San No Kata

Oshi Taoshi - must remember to open and not pivot. Also, get the proper initial off-balance

Gyakugamae Ate - this one's almost second nature

Kote Gaeshi - Get uke off-balance on the compression, allow him to get his knee up.

Aftermath: None of note
