In General aikido at Mount Shasta, the magic mountain. Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #2 New 08-10-2005 12:36 PM
Yesterday evening I attended class at the airy dojo in Mt. Shasta, California. One thing I liked about this dojo was that there were no ranked belts or hakamas or anything to differentiate status or level-- even the teacher was a white belt. This made me feel like we were all on the same plane. I hadn't even been aware of how the belt thing changes the dynamic of a dojo. Note to self: remember about turning your partner's body in irimi nage by hooking the elbow; like driving a car: you can't drive from the passenger seat, you must be behind the wheel. Remember also this last version of yokomenuchi kokyunage; irimi- catch arm from inside, collapse your elbow for atemi, open your hip for this final graceful wave. (Oh, the techniques I have forgotten, because there is no language to remind me of them! Aikido is so impossible to capture in words.)
