You won't be getting a deeply profound journal entry from me tonight because frankly, I'm way too busy at the moment. Apologies --- hopefully I'll be returning to my usual state of mind sometime soon.

We didn't do Tae Sabaki tonight after Bokken...instead, we did some:
Katatetori Kokyuho
Tsuki Kokyuho
The Technique Which Cannot Be Named (teehee...bit of a Lord of the Rings in-joke --- only those of you who read the books will get it ) --- it cannot be named because Sensei didn't mention the name, and its one distinguishing feature for me is that when Dave does the throw, he looks like a big white bird flapping its wings :P

So, if any of you kind and knowledgeable folks out there in Aikiweb-land can tell me the name of the technique where nage looks like a big white bird flapping its wings, please let me know. If I keep referring to it as such (comical as it is), this will no longer continue to sound like Aikido but some form of Kung Fu.

Ask and ye shall receive...
We did more slow-motion Randori (er, Jiyu Waza) to tie in the techniques we practiced tonight, though we only had time for just one round. It doesn't even matter much to me that my own round was so horrible --- I'm just so happy we did it!
