I'm all signed up for the aikido trip to Bangkok in November. It's my first ever aikido trip and it's the all Asian gathering which should be fun.
Lots of practice of the "windmill" throws today. I still can't quite get the hang of doing the ukemi and don't do proper rolls out of them at least half the time. My execution as nage isn't great either so I can see this is going to take a lot of practice.
kokyu ho from suwari waza: as uke I should remember to try to stay stable and not let my knees lift off the ground.
