In General leading, cross hands and a reversal Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #10 New 04-17-2005 10:16 PM
Friday's classes are getting interesting under this relatively new teacher.

kokyu: learnt it crosshanded this time where the hand that crosses can touch the face of the uke then both hands circle in opposite directions in large circles. I'm so used to doing this with just one hand that it was hard to adjust. Kept making only half circles with the otherhand.

ikkyo reversal: if there's a break in the nage's ikkyo and the uke tried to reverse into an ikkyo, we were supposed to then move their elbow downwards and move in the same direction the uke is moving but controlling and pinning their elbow so that they're still under control. I found it difficult to tell if i was really pinning the uke or not. Still think I haven't really figured out how to do this move properly but it was an interesting one.

we also practised leading a lot more. Moving the hand just ahead of uke so that they have to stretch and then of course overbalance and nage then takes their balance.

partnered a very sweet tall young girl who's a white belt and fortunately very gentle. My ankle still cannot take too much of a beating but is steadily getting better. Now if I fall on the right side backwards it's less painful and can take a small amount of weight whereas before I wd just avoid letting it touch the ground first which make my back right falls very weird. My seiza was very stiff at first then as the ankle warmed up it got a lot easier halfway through class. Am still staying only for the beginners class but may try the advanced class for weapons work next session. I'll see how I feel after the beginner's class.
