Aiki-Log -- Class #12
Thursday, September 9, 2004 -- 7:30pm
Norbert Jaeger Sensei was filling in for John Parks Sensei. He decided to have an extended test prep. This was great since it's tough to get enough time to have some of the techniques explained in sufficient detail.
One of our Sempai demonstrated a technique that we then worked on. Next he asked if anyone had a wish to see a defense against any type of non-aikido attacks. I suggested elbow strikes so he put a defense together and had us work on that for the rest of the class. He left the ending open for personal interpretation and inclination. This proved interesting since there were so many ways to proceed after the initial blending / blocking.
