I got the message from Sensei this week that it was time for me to start working seriously on sensitivity. I was so enjoying 2nd kyu-ness too

Sensei also commented that perhaps I should keep a journal, hence my return to writing. Hopefully I can make the time for this at more than a twice a year rate.

My thoughts on the whole sensitivity thing are very mixed... Sensei thinks a lot of it is my previous TKD training, having too much 'jerk' and muscle in my techniques instead of going with the flow and maintaining fluidity. I found my reactions to this interesting. First was the hackles rising, I have not been hurting anyone to my knowledge. But I know that he is right, and that a lot of techniques are not working as well as they could because of my blending with uke. So far in my Aikido training ukemi has come much easier than nage-waza. Part of that I think is due to the fact that I have worked harder on ukemi than nage waza.

So this week I have a week off due to work travel. Hopefully this will give me some distance and contemplation time. 1st kyu test in only 5-6 months, I need to make some progress in this area before then. As Sensei said, the question is not 'whether' to do this, the question is 'how'.
