Today we had our aikido playday. Sparse attendance, but those that were here had a good time. We didn't do any flashy whizbang ninja techniques but we spent the whole time on release#1 and falling safely. Turns out that front roll and back fall is pretty much the best self-defense you can learn, so everyone got their monies' worth.
In the private aiki class earlier this morning we did all 17 of the fundamentals from release#1, as in Nick's new film. Lots of fun and good practice. Check the film below...
