Wow, Cool class! Cold even. When I got down to the dojo it was 25 degrees and one of the windows was open! Needless to say it was sweats and shoes aiki today.
Aiki with Rob
- Shichihon no kuzushi
- chain #1 emphasizing whole-body motion, stepping to release, and the hand trades in the gaeshi-hineri loop. udehineri was working especially well today. Rob's dominant left side was not as coordinated as his non-dominant side today - interesting.
- various ryotedori and ushirodori from the koryunokata - these things seem to make tori more slippery and harder to hold onto.
