In General A great class last night; going to a seminar... Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #35 New 09-26-2003 09:40 AM
Last night's class (9/25/03) was fantastic! We continued working on kokyo nage throws with a lot of energetic ukemi demonstrated by everyone. I was proud of myself that I didn't get too winded even though I was doing a lot of continuous attack-roll-attack-roll cycles.

After working on technique for a while, we started our regular, Thursday night randori practice. We actually only started regular randori practice in the spring (about the time I started this journal). Prior to that, we practiced randori somewhat infrequently.

Anyway, after several months of working on randori, everyone is doing very well. The first couple people, lower ranks, did the slow motion randori exercise. The other senior students, our instructor, and I did the exercise full speed.

My turn went very well. I had two ukes, and they could do any attack. My opening movement was a simple entering movement past the uke on my left. I was then able to deal with each attacker individually. I went through a couple of cycles of easily dealing with each attacker, but just as I thought, "hey, this is going pretty well," I got caught up with one attacker and was quickly grabbed by the second one too. Still, I got a lot of compliments on my randori exercise. I returned a lot of compliments too -- everyone really looked good.

This evening, my wife and I are leaving for the Aikido Association of America's eastern states camp in Chestnut Ridge, New York (not far from NY City). I can only attend on Saturday (tomorrow), but I'm looking forward to a full day of training. We're not settling on a house this coming Tuesday; we walked away from that deal. But, we're having a home inspection on another house Tuesday, with settlement at the end of October! Things worked out the way they were supposed to work out. I get to go to the aikido seminar instead of staying home to pack for moving.

I'm finishing up the paperwork that we need to give to the AAA headquarters. My plan is to get it ready to mail, but see if I can give it to somebody at the seminar.
