In General I am Christopher Columbus Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Tonites class was amazing. I found out how injured my shoulder is and also learned how to injure my ankle. Both on the left side, so maybe I also now have experience in protecting my right side. I have yet to figure out why that matters, but anyway...

At the end of class Sensei said tonites class was one of discovery - how to discover your Aikido and discover your technique. He explained this by saying with each person the attack is different, stressing dynamic attacks but at the same time implying you have to relearn with every new partner. You have to discover.

Somehow when he described tonite's lesson as a discovery, my mind went back to 1492, back when Christopher Columbus sailed his "pinata" (I know, that wasn't the real name but I bet it was built like one). This was back when if your ukemi wasn't tight enough, Columbus Sensei would throw you off the boat so that the sharks could "discover" how many ways to devour you!

Wow - did I just rant without making a single bit of sense? Well, apologies. Tonite's discoveries will no doubt leave a mental mark. Awesome class!!
