Shiho nage w/ white belts then with Victor and Blair. Kokyu dosa w/ Sensei. My shiho nage feels really bad in motion. I have issues w/ where my feet go. Tomorrows 108 should help with that. Doing anything 108 times with concentration should help whatever it is that you are doing. Victors direct entry seems much easier blend to me, his way of making you "fit him like a glove" is very powerful Aikido. Sensei wants us to do it with a drop back for the test though and since he is grading the test I am going to do it with a drop back. I am also sure that there are reasons that we are doing the drop back blend for the fifth kyu test, and not the entering in blend that Victor was doing.
