I'm slowly regaining a bit of my form and I'm finally realising how not to grab so much in ikkyo and *enter*.

irimi-nage: i must remember to grab the guy by the scruff of his neck, i must remember to grab the guy by the scruff of his neck, i must remember to grab the guy by the scruff of his neck....

new move: from a two handed shoulder grab, atemi at the face with the nearest hand then duck under the same side. Remember chin to chest as I duck otherwise no way can I break the hold of the two handed grab.

I'm also trying to figure out how to practice with an uke who kind of overspins a bit and I don't think it's cos I'm using too much force. But when I go into sankyo or yongkyo I notice she turns slightly away as she goes down and I'm not sure why and I don't like the lack of control it implies on my part of course . Or is it that with an uke like that I have to adjust differently? I just haven't been able to figure out what to do to control uke better. Maybe I should just try after the inital take down to remember to push her in the same direction she turns.

Not sure why it is that I lost my concentration and hence form over the last week or two...probably stress from work but that's never happened before. Usually the more I stress out at work, the more aikido practice becomes a haven, a place to concentrate only on aikido.
