Randori within constraints

AM aiki with Rob
  • releases as warmup
  • chain #1 - the first part with emphasis on left-right synch and hineri-gaeshi synch
  • chain #2 - the sharp turn with emphasis on up-down synch and the 'who's the boss?' idea. This led into the idea of chains as randori within constraints. It is randori with enough structure to make it repeatable so you get to do randori around a set of 4-5 techniques or positions with good flow.
  • Getting Rob ready for nidan in aikido. End of October would be a good time to do that as part of the aiki buddies gathering.
