In General Tuesday's class: new student Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #63 New 11-02-2005 09:22 AM
Jason just joined us. He heard about Aikido of Midland through an on-line aquintence of mine and came last week to watch a class. Well, he came back last night and got a crash course in rolling 101. Crash being the opportune word as we all crash when learning to roll.

Anyhow, we worked alot last night with Madrid on his upcoming test techniuqes. He's really coming along nicely, but he's probably the first student I've ever seen who looks to Sensei BEFORE finishing the technique... for comment or something. He's not even done... yet he'll drop what he's doing, not finish the technique and then turn to Sensei like," What did I do wrong? or Was that okay?"

FOLLOW THROUGH! If aikido is ever going to work, forget about what anyone else thinks and finish the damn technique! LOL Silly goose.

Madrid has a lot of potential. His rolls are awsome, he takes great ukemi. When he follows through on technique, he nails me and I'm almost three times his size. LOL

Anyhow, did a little work on high falls, some shihonage, but mostly worked with Madrid.

Looking forward to Houston this weekend!
