In General Flow...not so much..... Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #27 New 01-30-2015 06:03 AM
Class last night was another class on flow. Something is flowing even if it is not me in my life. Maybe today will be different. I turn my boat around again and let the current take me.

Ron started class with an L step with a reverse yokomen...that was a habit harasser. Then he incorporated the move into a ki exercise when we did the same move with no bokken. Uke could fall or not depending if their balance was taken. This was a new height of looking at habitual movement. It provided such an opportunity for mind body awareness.

After doing an exercise with a ball about flow and following, I asked the class to feel the same with uke. For black belts I asked that they not have any idea what they were going to do until it happened and for orange belts I asked that they think of a technique and then let go of the thought and just do it.

As usual aikido class washed away the day and cleansed my body and spirit.
