Aikido Friday Night - 10/08/10

Aikidoka:  Tim, Troy, Sal, and Dan

Ukemi:  Light warmup.  I spent the regular time watching over Dan

The Walk: twice

Releases: with Dan.  Lots of rust after over a month away


I warmed up Dan with some "punch the dummy" work.  After a few reps, he had that down. We moved on to Shomen-ate.  We had to work on the initial off-balance for a while.  His hand work was throwing me off.

I then worked with Troy on Oshi-taoshi and Ude-gaeshi and did pretty well.  We spent most of the time at one-step distance to make things easier.

I also work with Sal some on Shomen-ate.  I wanted to give him a different uke, and I'm about as different as they come.  He did pretty well

Aftermath: None of note.
