Morning Class:
I asked Sensei about the next upcoming test today, he said there would be one the end of May, and that I should test then. This was a cool vote of confidence, but at the same time I am more nervous about this test than I would have thought. Something to do with testing on something in the midst of a community. My level of concern seems strange to me. Testing for something in a voluntary recreational activity, which does not have any relationships on standing in the larger community, or in income etc should not seem to be that much of a stress creating factor. Yet I am more worried about this that I am about some of the occupational testing that I have done.

Morte Dori Ikkyo trying to get things to glide and flow with the technique, trying to get your timing with your uke, so that you are neither pulling or pushing them. This is challenging.

Worked good class, one of the newer students bowed to me, and I went first as Nage! This is really strange! I am used to being least senior marshmallow, this made both myself and the other Aikidoka laugh.

Worked on making sure that we were under the elbow, not behind it, and making an arc up and over, and down in front of us with the elbow in this move, this gave it a lot of power. Linda was really good at this, and I felt like my head was going to get pile drove into the mat a couple of times. One time it seemed pertant to do a forward roll out of the technique at the end. This was something that just happened to me as I was thinking what was different about this technique with Linda. Both of us were surprised a little at it.
