In General GIFTS: glimpses into what it should feel like but Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Excellent training secession worked w/ Rick on my test stuff it went well.

Rick and I both worked on our off the line entry to shiho nage. We spoke w/ sensei about how this felt weird. Sensei told us that off the line drop back could be smaller than we were making it. Something more like 15 degrees than the 30 or so that Rick and I were doing.
Sensei and I had a wonderful discussion about politics and then about trying to do aikido w/o any force being detectable by the uke. The idea being that you direct the flow of energy so well and subtley that the uke does not feel that any force was applied to their body.

I had experiencied this twice w/ the hand part of ikkyo last week w/ Victor. I have been unable to do anything close since then to my frustration. I felt what it was really supposed to feel like now I can't get it! Sensei said that these would happen throughout my training and were there to give me glimpses of what to work for.

Beginers class was slower paced but equally rewarding w/ the exception of the fact that I sustained my first Aikido injury when I got stepped on by my nage and my big toenail bent back and ripped. Ouch!
