Aiki with Patrick M., Kel, and Rick
- Today we discussed getting in rhythm with uke, like Musashi was talking about in the passage I posted a few days ago...
- Tegatana with emphasis on shortening steps to keep in synch with an external pace.
- Hanasu with emphasis on shortening or stretching steps to get in synch during releases #1 and #3. From there we played with brushing off and disengaging. #2 turns into a particularly fabulous brushoff if tori stays light on the feet, times uke's near footfall and brushes himself off of uke.
- Koryu dai ichi section B with emphasis on staying light on the feet and flowing around obstacles.
