Working from the aiki brushoff

Aiki with Kel, Patrick M., Whit, Knox, and Quin
  • ROM, Ukemi
  • tegatana with emphasis on the 'helicopter' pivot and the hip switches
  • paired practice using the helicopter pivot against an attacker to get yourself out of a close toe-to-toe situation - this works out just like a 'Japanese pass' in wrestling.
  • evasion and brushoff inside and outside using R3 and YK1 motions.
  • Shomenate and gyakugamaeate as in gokata working with the idea of brushing off
  • wakigatame, kotetaoshi and maeotoshi as fall-backs when the brush off fails or uke sticks to tori
