One of the very nice thai aikikai young men showed me that as I was short, I could just bend more at the knees and bring the uke in towards my centre by brining the hand in towards my centre as I tenkan. I've been trying it out and it works. It gives me more control as nage and I need to move around uke less. I do need to practice it though to make it smoother.

last night's practice: this has always been elusive to get it consistently right. During the practice, one of the yudansha at AAF showed me to turn the wrist more to cut using the small finger out and that would make the uke's wrist also turn more effectively.

last night:
we practiced in the dance studio for once and since it has mirrors on one side, I occasionally glimpsed myself and realised my posture isn't upright enough for a lot of the moves. I need to be more aware of what the correct position is. I think sometimes it's because I'm compensating for a technique which doesn't quite work and that's the only way I can maintain fluidity.
