In General Learning Points from Fri Class Entry Tools Rate This Entry

I learned so much in class today...one of the yudansha took class and he seldom teaches this class so it was a refreshing change. So I'm noting down all the bits I was doing wrong so I will hopefully remember.

1. ukemi for yokomen: I should glide forward with the front foot a bit if necessary to retain balance. Also should check if I'm moving too early if nage doesn't move.

2. shihonage from a yokomen strike: do not use the blocking hand to hold. Use the other hand. It makes pushing out the uke's striking arm easier.

3. shihonage: extending uke all the way through...proved very hard with the nage I was working with but essentially i was told that I tended to give uke back his balance in the second half of the movement..but I haven't yet managed to figure out if I need to move further behind uke to achieve this or to angle uke's arm down earlier...will have to experiment i guess.

4. kotegaishi omote from katate dori: tenkan then "step out" and remember the drawing back of the front foot goes into 270 degree circle...I kept stopping well before that cos i was just too afraid of hurting uke

5. kotegaishi ura version 1: keep uke's arm clasped down close to the body at the hip and just turn by taking tiny steps on the spot and above all remember to look towards my back shoulder while doing so and turn that way.

There were other points but well, I think that's all I can clearly remember for one evening.
