Working in the basics class on Nikkyo wow, this seemed a lot harder to me than the Sankyo this morning. I didn't get anything that felt right in this. Working with Doug I was never really sure if I managed to get the Nyko part right. The footwork setup, and the fact that Nyko only works if your partner comes around the corner in a dedicated attack were learned by me late in the class. Things made a little more sense then, but not what I would call cognitive connection. Setting up a base for Nikkyo that takes the energy of the earth through your back foot and into the Wrist of your Uke while making perfect sense seemed to be slightly beyond me….
