Aikido Friday Night - 4/3/09

Aikidokas: Tim, Trey, Kim, and Tom.

Ukemi: Just watched over Tom.

The Walk: As usual.

Releases: Worked with Tom. Noticed a few points where he was using some muscle. He noticed them as well as they tended to be on the side of his slightly bum shoulder.


Ju Nana Hon Kata

Did some work with Tom on Shomen-ate. We worked on putting the whole thing together and it's coming along amazingly well.

Did some work with Tom in Aigamae-ate. We were doing step by step work and I made a mistake on when to do the hip switch. There needs to be another step by uke after the initial off-balance and, when that happens, then it's time for the hip switch.

Koryu Dai San No Kata
