Aikido Thursday Night - 9/30/10

Aikidoka:  Tim


We did some work on Higashi's techniques on unarmed defense against bokken.  We played with the five techniques.  We spent a lot of time playing with the fifth technique which is an aigamae-ate sword take away.  The off-balances and kake were tough to figure out and optimize.  Higashi's photos seemed to show items that were not comfortable for toir and potentially risky.  We'll do some more work on them in future sessions.

Aftermath: None of note.
