Aikido Saturday Afternoon - 04/17/10

Aikidokas: Tim, Trey, and Brad.

Ukemi: Full warm-up, no big falls.

The Walk: None.

Releases: None.


We got to work with Brad on Oshi Taoshi for an extended period of time for the first time.  He really picked up on it nicely by the end of the afternoon.

At the end of the session, Trey and I worked on Oshi Taoshi in the kneeling section of Koryu Dai San.  Brad sat around and watched us so that he could compare what we're doing with what he's doing.  The techniques are as similar as they can be given the standing versus kneeling positions.

Aftermath: None of note.  My knee is doing ok.  Trey's starting to get a taste of what kneework's like.  He appears to be suffering more than I do.  My issue is just with getting stretched out for all of this work.  His appears to be the actual movement.
