In General Rik Ellis' ground work using Aikido Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #12 New 04-01-2012 03:26 PM
I found Rik Ellis' ground work using Aikido to be really inspirational. The last two classes we have worked on finding nikkyo from the ground after a kata tori kokyu nage. We are practicing in a really slow fashion. I am asking nage turned uke to leave their hands in one place so uke turned nage can orient themselves and find the nikkyo from whatever angle we can find. As we continue our practice we can add more resistance and less co-operation.

I am finding moving on the ground to be a lot of fun. I especially like the opportunities for legs and feet. Last week I was thinking about starting Tae Kwon do or Muay Thai but I think this was really what I was looking for. Thanks universe, for providing the challenges I need in my own back yard.
