I always think twice before adding a post, because I know it's going to be something in the lines of "I had a cool class" or "oh no I had a shitty class and I feel like a loser", and in comparison to the deep thoughts and analysis you encounter on other people's posts, blogs and articles, I feel like the village fool.

However, I already stated several times this is a totally personal development blog so we'll all have to live with that.

So this is going to be a "I had a cool class" post, in regards to my lousy feeling with Irimi nage. Yesterday (After a week and a half of missing classes because I was hosting a friend from Chicago and showing her the country) we had an irimi nage class again. First round was stopping after the irimi movement. Second round was stopping after the kuzushi, and only then we proceeded to the throw. At first I was very nervous "oh no another irimi class - there goes my day" but then for some reason I got very loose, just flowed with it, and u know what, my irimi didn't suck (too much) and I had a good time.

On a different note, next week Donovan Waite sensei is coming to Israel next week. I find it funny that we get way better Aikido seminars than punk shows around here. How can it be that world class instructors come here every few months but getting a punk band here happens about once a decade?
If both would happen at the same frequency that'd be cool - I'd get to practice Aikido in moshpits too :P
