Aikido Saturday Afternoon - 1/29/11

Aikido players:  Tim, Trey, Brad, Melvin and Gayle.

Ukemi:  Full ukemi, no big falls.

The Walk: Not today

Releases: Worked with Trey on our releases.  It'd been a while since we'd worked together on them, so we spent some time dissecting issues.


Trey and I worked on Koryu Dai San kneeling techniques for a while, mainly with Trey serving as tori.  I did get a couple of reps while trying to explain my approach to some of them and while attempting to figure out some minor details.

Tim worked with Melvin and Gayle on the walk during this time.

Brad showed up about 3 hours in and Trey and I worked with him on 6-10 of Ju Nana Hon Kata.  We then had him run through all 10 of the techniques.  He's making progress, but we need to boost his confidence that he *is* making progress.


5 hours of aikido.  Ibuprofen was a definite necessity to ease the pain a bit.
