In General The connected week Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #2 New 10-15-2004 08:15 AM
This week has really focused on being connected to nage for me. I had several revelations about exercises we did and the proper way to do them.

The first one was where you push nage from behind and they go down to one knee, and you roll over the forward knee/shoulder of nage. I was pushing then letting go. Sensei explained to me that the exercise was to stay connected to nage, feel what he was doing. OMG, light bulb moment #1.

The other was doing basic hip randori, where uke comes at nage with arms about shoulder height and width, and nage kaitens, throwing uke the direction they were going. I have been whacking nage in the head for a long time, and never sure why. Sensei explained that I needed to maintain shoulder contact with that back hand, staying connected and feeling where I was being thrown. Light bulb #2 for the week.

2 light bulbs in a week is really a pretty good week for me.

We had a pretty much all ukemi night tuesday of this week. We did a rolling exercise from seiza that made me realize I really need to work on one side; I'm not nearly as flexible on the right as I am on the left.
