In General Saturday class, knee pain Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #33 New 11-22-2004 06:10 PM
Saturday class started with half hour ukemi class. We were practicing kote gaeshi and taking ukemi with concentration of slapping and kiai. Sensei says when class is small, kiai and slapping helps to pump up the energy level. Well he is right, but... Ok, he is right.
Then we had the main session and the energy level was really hight... So high that I injured my knee. I was working with Jim and he is unstoppable as usual, with that additional energy from kiai and slapping I was flying all over the dojo During one of tenchinage I'gone on my knee instead of directly on my butt. That was less fun... Anyway, I survived. I guess if anyone of those guys who keeps asking about effectiveness of Aikido ever trained with Jim, they would be more concerned about their physical integrity, than about its effectivenes
Then we did koshinage, without the final throw, just blending, loading the partner of your back and balancing. It seemed very difficult, but doing it right is pretty effortless. During kokyu doza I felt how really my knee hurts and haven't done my part as nage (taking ukemi is ok, but moving on you knees is pretty painful).
Then there was weapon practice and we did partner practice. This time with Phyllip, who haven't done this part of 31 jo kata partner practice (22-31), so I spent this class working slowly and explaining him some parts. Of course I did not remember some of them myself, so sensei had to help us several times, but overall we did well and Phyllip learned it pretty fast.
