Started a class in yoga on Tuesday, an interesting mix of Ashtanga and other methods. Exhausting! but exhilerating at the same time.

Keiko on Wed. night was good. I started out tired from the yoga the night before, but as class progressed, my energy awoke. We worked the 10 pivots, first solo, then with partner, then with applied technique. Kancho gave the best explanation yet for the difference between pivots 8 and 9.

8 starts gyaku, 180 dpivot, figure 8 with hand, as you break the shoulder line, xstep in back pivot. Palm up, then down.

9 starts aihamne, front pivot, back pivot, figure 8 with hand, as you break the shoulder line, front pivot. Palm down the whole time.

9 has much more of a ki-no-nagare feel to it, but uke's part is hard in that you have to time taking the hand offered and pushing.

Free style afterward felt really nice, I had some trouble managing the ma ai from ryote mochi for iriminage, but was able to figure it out after a couple failures. I could feel the relaxation in form the best yet during some of those throws...I could feel uke's weight going, feel the focus in the hips, and the power of the throw from the stance. Felt like what I see when people *really* do yoshinkan. Probably won't happen again for a while...but I'm used to that.

Found this really nice article at Aikido Journal.


I would have loved to spend some time with this guy on the mat. Ellis is really lucky to have known him.
