Morning class.
A bit distracted, and definitely still jet lagged from a trip to Europe it was with much zeal that I took to the mat this morning. Being back in the standard lesson format is good, back into the feeling that you don't know anything, where is it that my feet go? How did the Ukes arm get there, oh wait I must have moved it there, oops stepped on your foot, oops you steped on mine. The technique was Ryote dori Ikkyo, Kote gaeshi, Shiho nage, irimi nage. Jet lag and a new technique what a combination to really make me feel like I lost it completely over vacation…I have some of the feelings of what Ryote Dori is supposed to feel like, but am far from feeling it at all when I am doing it.

Sensei also spoke about how are hands were supposed to be in Tai No Henko, and in Ryote Dori, not like a lot of us are doing them splayed out turned back toward the elbow, but fingers close together, hand bent at the wrist toward the center of our bodies, and flowing with the energy of the ukes grab. This immediately made perfect intellectual sense, but dammed if I could keep doing it and think about the other parts of the technique.
