Just about catching up after a 3 week business trip to Mexico.
The dojo is running incredibly smooth and the members did an incredible job while I was gone. It's wonderful to see members working together, training and teaching.
Last week I was very impressed with everyone's level of training. As I sat there and watched, literally sat there because I was so tired from being beat up, I noticed that no one was getting the technique. Everyone looked out right awful!
I was actually very happy to see this. It meant that the intensity of the attacks has increased substantially. It means that the students are working very hard at getting the techniques down. It means that no one is taking a fall, but putting the body and soul into the attacks.
I strongly believe that this kind of training makes a person better and stronger at the techniques of Aikido.
It was great to see "ALL" the students having to sit down and take a break from the intensity of the class. And all that, thanks to Mike Nguyen for teaching the class. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK, Mike.
