Aikido Friday Night - 9/11/09

Aikidokas: Tim, Trey, and Tom.

Ukemi: I did a little warm-up of my own. Tested to see how the left hip is doing.

The Walk: Twice, as usual.

Releases: None.


Trey and I worked on Kata Otoshi and Aikinage all night. Kata Otoshi is a bugbear of technique for me. I did manage to nail it four times in a row and then three times in a row. I think I need more reps. The determining factor seems to be my timing: I tend to be in a hurry. I need to slow down.

I did manage a left-sided Aikinage, though. Go me!

Aftermath: The hip joint issue is still in play. Right elbow and right middle finger are minor concerns.
