In Training Ice is your friend Entry Tools Rate This Entry

First time in a dojo in many years, and I have to say, it felt real good!

I'm back at home now, enjoying a beer and applying ice to both wrists... and grinning like a maniac. BTW, wine bottle chillers are great for wrists.

It's interesting; I'm having trouble with ikiyo (we were practicing katatatori ikiyo), but nikiyo seemed to come back to me much more clearly. I really need to focus on ki direction and capturing uke's center; I focus too much on the externals. Intellectually, I know better; on the mat, I forget.

Kinetic memory is odd,eh?

Forward rolls were not too lumpy, but my back rolls were pathetic. Guess I need to move the furniture in my living room and spend some time rolling around .

I can't wait to get back on the mat. I wonder if I'll have time to go Thursday after my daughter's end of the year band concert...

PS. day after analysis: clearly I need to spend more attention conditioning my getting off the mat muscle groups...

Ice is your friend? Funny you should say that...I have an ice pack on my lower back right now! Messed it up moving TVs for my mom. I can't even blame it on aikido! Best, Ron
