A good class, Noel taught. Lots of inner aikido and thinking in this class for me. Not because it was structured that way, just because I was in that space. Wonderful KoKyu Dosa with Anna who refused to be tipped over at the end by any standard means, It was great, later in the day the physical side of it clicked for me, and I understood that there was a way to gently and without a lot of muscle to tip her over. Maybe next time we are on the mat together I can give it a shot.
Evening class: Got to be crash test dummy for with Doug who was teaching in Senseis absence. Worked with a lot of the newbies, and a couple of my sempies. It was interesting being crash test dummy and having people rush out to bow to me. It was kind of cool also having done the technique with the person instructing, and to have felt some of the flow there while giving a demonstration of the best Ukemi that I could.
