Cool rokukata tentainage

Aiki with Patrick M. and Kel
  • tegatana emphasizing turning the hips/body with the leg to develop a powerful position and keep the knee safe.
  • hanasu segue into chain #2 but starting chain #2 from the wrong side (i.e. like shomenate or yonkata #1). This also got us off onto a tangent of how to use uke's motion and mass to get tori out of a corner or off of a wall and reverse positions.
  • nijusan #1-5 (Kel's rank requirement)
  • rokukata tentainage (this thing worked like a charm! Even wrong-sided! Even against really strong opponents! Even against really light opponents! Man this thing was cool!)
