Yesterday was my first day back in Aikido in seven months. Really you just can't take that much time off and expect doing what you used to not to punish your body. Man, I am so sore. I figure I'll jog, the 3 Km's to class when I go everytime to and from, do a whole lotta Shikko, lotsa rolls, and try to punish my body for a while to lose this 50 Lbs I've gained.
I'm definitely gonna practice slow to get the finer points I was activley including in my techniques instead of going fast and doing sloppy so I can get back to where I was fast so I can continue where I feel I left off.
I'm definitley alot more serious about how I train now then before and really focus on getting technique right.
Anyway the students I practiced with were intersted in some of the things I did in my techniques that were new and "cool" to them, things I learned in Winnipeg, and it's interesting the differences between Aikikai in Winnipeg and Sudbury, they were doings things just as new to me as I was them. It should be alotta fun, big stone dojo full of books, and nice people can't wait till next class, Ta!
