Morning class.

Aikido as the place that is out of the world to look at the world. How when I go looking for ideas to solving the problems that I am having I. I find them in Aikido. The work out was great, and I did Jawa Randori (?) with Rick and Julia after class. I still feel like my Kate Dori Ikkyo is not all that good, and we have been working on it for over two weeks. What I mean by that is not that I expected to be on ball bearings like Sensei, or have flow like some of the Yodunsha, but that seem to have a better grasp of some of the other techniques than I do of this one. Something in the basics of it seems to elude me.

The class was wonderful in that I understood some of the connections between what I am doing physically in Aikido, and what is going on emotionally in my life.

In Circle at the end of class I spoke of the ways that Aikido is helping me in my professional life in working with clients, and how I would never have gotten as far in this working with a few of the clients that I have been working with.

After Class the friend that I had tried to help on Tuesday came to me, and we had a conversation that mirrored what I had discovered for myself. So somehow in the big wheel I was able to offer something little to one of my traning partners. This feels so good, as the person is one of the Sempies that adopted me when I started this 6 weeks ago. He has done so much to help me the idea of giving something back no matter how little is wonderful.
