Aikido Friday Night - 12/18/09

Aikidokas: Tim, Trey, Tom, and Sal.

Ukemi: Light warm-up, spent most of the time watching over Sal.

The Walk: Twice, as usual.

Releases: With Sal.


I don't remember what the bulk of the session was concerning At the end of the session, Tim had Trey go through 1-17 of Ju Nana Hon Kata, left side only. He did fairly well. He had troubles on Hiki otoshi.

I also got some time and worked on 1-8 standing of Koryu Dai San No Kata.

1. Kote Mawashi

Took me a bit to figure this one again

2. Uchi Tenkai Nage

This one went surpirsingly well.

3. Gyakugamae Ate

Pivot (rotate) at the end (for kake)

4. Kote Kajiki

Still having troubles getting into the proper position on the first try to make uke need to fall

5. Mae Otoshi

Still not smooth

6. Ushiro Waza Mae Otoshi

Still not smooth

7. Ushiro Waza Tentai Kote Hineri

Still not smooth

8. Mune Tori Kata Gatame

Not bad. Need to use the ankle more to get uke to turn over.

Aftermath: None of note.
