Back to Ikkyo again. I played uke for Ben who has returned to us again. (Welcome back, Ben!) He should be testing for 5th kyu in August if he logs the hours... and he should be able to do so easily.

Ikkyo : The cutting hand isn't enough if you do not throughly CUT! Enter... and CUT! But on top of that, in order to bring about good control, the other hand must come to the elbow, raise up the uke to help take their balance so that when you do cut, the uke is thrown forward and off-balance.

On this technique, the thing I need to work on is lowering my center to get under the uke and raising them up for cut.

Shihonage: 4 direction cut. Footwork is very key on this. Up, up, up and pivot! Don't cut until you have it sufficently raised and under control.

Kotegaishi: Again with the footwork... get off line! You really need to fully tenkan or step ten shin to get outta the way of the attack. If you just move back, you invite another attack.

It was good to just play Uke and feel the differneces in the techniques of others compared to Sensei. There is a keen difference. It was good!
