I had the pleasure of partnering one of the best aikidoka of around my rank in the dojo on sunday. It's only the 2nd time I've had this chance. He has had the distinction of being awarded a jump from brown straight to black and well deserves it. I find his technique beautifully smooth and firm and for the life of me I cannot figure out how he does some things ...it's all in the details and I feel once more like a young aikidoka trying to fathom how my senior is executing a move which I'm doing my darnest to imitate but still somehow mine turns out choppy and no where near as effective while his is elegant, smooth and very effective. It was a great learning and humbling experience. I'm waiting for him to get his shodan. He richly deserves it...nothing like natural talent combined with a dedication to practice.

I also think there's definitely something wrong with my ukemi. It's just not working well for irimi nage cos I'm too afraid of getting my face smacked.
