I've discovered what works on mozzies: incense burning of lemongrass scented sticks for hours in my bedroom at night. I slept soundly last night for a full 8 hours for the first time in a couple of weeks. hooray! No more aikido with mosquitos at in the middle of the night .
Lots of kaiten nage at aikido last night. It's my least favourite move as I'm really not good at it particularly the ura version. Being uke is even harder than being nage. I really have to watch how I fall out of that and find it hard to fall safely even slowly. It's actually slightly easier to flip out of it but harder to do so safely and I have a slight ache in my left shoulder cos I think I fell slightly wrong yesterday.
Someone asked a good question during aikido last night...I have to say people are loosening up a lot more during q&a and coming up with all these attacks they want to learn to get out of. It gets quite interesting although of course by that time it's 9.30pm at night and I'm raring to go home to watch the korean serial I've become addicted to: Jewel in the Palace . All that yummy Korean food!
