Aikido this afternoon

Aiki with Kel
  • ROM, warmup
  • tegatana
  • hanasu emphasizing synching with uke's up-down rhythm all the way through the technique. We also worked on recognizing when uke shifts from casual walking to "getting ready to fight" walking and seeing if we could switch him back with an offbalance.
  • rokukata maeotoshi off of release #4 emphasizing executing hte technique by stretching a footstep right at the instant of uke's footfall. Kel was getting it on the wrong footfall about half the time but it was still working great! Coolness.
  • We started working on chain #3 and got as far as the elbow-to-elbow wakigatame when Kel was called away.
