Last Sunday was a special weapons class for white rose aikikai, taken by Sensei Riley and Sensei Derrick - we covered the Bokken kumi tachi (1-5), it was a great class.

After last nights class however i was feeling a frustrated with myself, Sensei John Edge (2 circles Aikido) is taking through their Shodan syllabus - very mentally intense, where you break down a technique to its core elements, parts of which i understood, and some were new concepts - 'bomb shelters', 'base supports' and 'compression'
All this is wrote down and then Sensei watches and makes his notes on your sheet.

After the class i was quite disappointed with myself, i didn't sleep well thinking about it all.
This Aikido journey has many ups and downs, with obstacles to overcome and problems to solve........then again i suppose if it we didn't care so much about it, it wouldn't bother us so much.

Hi Chris, you shoudn't think too much about beeing disappointed with yourself. My teacher always let us do something to enjoy ourselves and to laugh the last 10 minutes of the class so that we leave with a good feeling.
