Aikido Friday Night - 02/26/10

Aikidokas: Tim, Trey, Brad, and Sal. 
Ukemi: Full warm-up, no big falls. Watched over Sal.

The Walk: Twice, as usual.

Releases: Watched over Brad and Sal.


Sal and Brad did some work on Shomen-ate and Aigamae-ate.  Off-balances, timing, etc.  We some more introductory work with Brad on Oshi taioshi.

Trey was working with Tim on showing the visitors what our style of aikido was all about.

Trey and I ended the class with an almost complete run through of his demonstration techniques and of my demonstration techniques.  We did my 8 kneeling techniques, 8 standing and the 10 Owaza Ju Pon.  We then ran through 1-17 of Ju Nana Hon Kata on both sides and 1-5 of Owaza Ju Pon for Trey.  He and I were beat after that.

Aftermath: We also had 7(!!!!!) visitors to the dojo.  Potentially 7 new students.  3 couples and one solo guy.  where did they all come from?  How did they all arrive on one night?  The world is weird.
