Aikido Saturday Afternoon - 4/7/2012

Aikido players: Tim, Trey, Troy, Brad, Dan, and Reese


Got a partial set of rolls in. Supervised Reese for a bit.

The Walk:

Twice, as usual.


Supervised Dan and Brad.


I worked on Oshi-taoshi with Dan and Brad at separate times. Had to state firmly that th working hand gets removed from the elbow once tori has gone over-the-mountain. Shortly after stating that, Dan stumbled while doing the technique which, if he'd not removed his hand from my elbow would have destroyed my elbow.

Troy, Trey and I did some work at the end of class. I worked on the releases techniques of Yon Kata with both of them as ukes. It really is a fun set of techniques when it's working at speed. Trey did some work on Owaza Ju Pon. It took him a bit to get used to working with Troy again and get his timing down, but he really got flowing by the end of the afternoon.


Very, very sore. Going to need some ibu.
