In General Back to it Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #4 New 09-20-2019 12:35 AM
So back to it for a few weeks.

Things I have noticed about myself. I have lost an edge of quickness on my feet but I am hoping that this will come back with more work. I have a better appreciation of being able to practice, both physically and mentally, I am so lucky to be able to get on the mats twice a week and learn from all those around me.

My children have also restarted their karate and I have sat in on their classes and learned a thing or two from listening. At the last session they talked about using your martial art to help you be the best you you can be. I found this very inspirational and am using it to motivate my thoughts at aikido.

Keep training guys

Nearly time for that hardest of sessions. Six weeks off the mat and on Monday I will get back on, brilliantly unfit and a bit heavier.

That awkward moment of trying to move like you did before but not being quite as sharp. Still it only happens once and the. It comes good again.

Nearly time.

As an extra bonus saw a tree which had a trunk split into two smaller ones out on a walk the other day

In General Injury frustration comes good Entry Tools Rate This Entry

So more rambling nonsense thoughts.

I started this blog with the intention of filling it and look where that got me. Not very far.

So I recently had a very minor injury of a torn ligament at the end of one of my fingers, no big deal rest it up and it will be fine. Oh no splint for 4 weeks to keep it straight and then no contact sports for 2 more weeks or it might end up in the splint again or bent for life. My job is in healthcare of eyes so I have to be pretty dexterous and can't afford to lose that.

So here we are 4 weeks of hell is over and the splint is off and I can finally do things again! But not aikido. It is driving me some what insane. I am practising weapons at home and trying foot work drills and some Qi gong but it's not the same as being on the mats. I have missed our weekly summer school of training. Felt very frustrated and angry at the unfairness of it all.

It is however what it is and once I have come through it with the help and support of my aikido family I have come to realise that there can be more to training than the physical act of training and as such I have tried to begin the journey of mental and spiritual training with aikido. I began reading more, listening to more podcasts and generally reflecting more on my thoughts and attitude to aikido, those I train with and myself. I ha e no real firm thoughts or conclusions yet and doubt I ever will as things are always in flux, but I will try to broaden how and what I study, and try to recor ...More Read More

In General Sword falling Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #1 New 07-31-2016 12:24 AM
Just came across an interesting article that highlights that when people try to swing a sword down with muscle all that they are doing is slowing it's terminal velocity.

It stated that one should try to let the sword achieve terminal velocity and then increase this with muscle in the correct direction.

I am not saying I know how to do this as I don't but food for thought
