A typical Canadian December day with snow covering everything in a white-still-pure and not yet stained by pollution. My gi and water bottle are packed in my kit bag and I am ready to get back on the horse and attend my second Aikido class....is there a horse stance in Aikido?

Anyway, the shoulder is still tender, and, being a side sleeper, I am still aware of it's plight when attempting to slumber. I will have to be careful.

I was going to attend class last night, but having worked seven days of 15:00-23:00 at the prison I hadn't seen my wife and daughter at all. So, the wee one and I did a bit of tobogganning during the day and I squeeked out a last minute one point victory over my wife in a game of "Carcassonne" by the warmth of our fireplace.

So, that being done, I am ready to roll (and breakfall, etc.)... though it was a roll that ingured my shoulder - yikes!

...A colleague also expressed interest in trying out a class, so he might be coming with.

So, here goes.....

"is there a horse stance in Aikido?" yes! I think so anyway. We call it jiggatai (that's the nearest phonetic translation I can muster). Injuries are frustrating. My back was never bad enough to have me folded up in pain but one session of Aikido was enough to make me realise it needed a bit more time to get back to normal. I wish you patience! As a naturally impatient person I know how horrible it is having to feel like you're having to wait around...
