Morning class (Tom Zielinski):
Irimi and tenkan practice
Rondori practice
Jo practice
spiral block
kata #1

And what did we notice?

That ski rondori is much harder for us than shomen rondori. I think that's because it is much easier for me to irimi straight in on a shomen than on a ski. I think that's because when you irimi straight in on a ski, you really need to have your angles right or you are just walking into the punch. Shomen is more forgiving.

That I can do a spiral block, but only very slowly. The key is to make sure that the block is coming out of my rear hip and not out of the hand. This is hard to explain, but it basically means that I am trying to connect my rear hip through to uke's center through the two joes (heehee), and then to drive forward through that. Hard hard.

Teaching tonight.
