Yatta! Two keiko in two weeks! I'm a training machine! Watch out! But seriously though...
it's nice to not have a month or more between practice. I'm still getting thoroughly exhausted after taking ukemi from Sensei, but I can feel slight progress.
Focal points from training:
  • Imagine being up to the solar plexus in water; everything above the water does very little and is relaxed, but everything below the water is generating drive.
  • Start from the core; the periphery adds to that.
  • Equal ki in the hands.
  • Receiving the torque/lock from the left wrist, try to spread it out through the body into the right flank.
  • Start correct (as much as possible), then add speed.
That last one was reinforced nicely while practicing ikkyo. I noticed I kept trying to pounce to make it work, but when I slowed down I was able to get a better feeling involved, which was immediately noticeable to my partner.
