In General Sit fall practice. Small ikkyo correction that mak Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #17 New 10-25-2004 11:51 AM
On Saturday I came on time. O'Quinn sensei was the only person in dojo. Saturday morning half an hour ukemi class is not very popular I guess... Anyway that was my chance to learn sit falls from my teacher and I asked for it. Sensei does it so easily! Not that I've got it, but I can describe it. Sensei brings his front foot back and a little bit crossed (as a very tight hanmi), drops his back knee, but does not fall on it. That looks like he just sits on the floor and the rest is usual - he rolls on the side. Coming back is the reverse, no hands touching the ground, but here he first goes on his knee, then the back foot steps on the toes and steps back into hanmi. All the way you are looking at the attacker (in front).
While we were practicing Bill Witt sensei came and started his warmups. There were Witt sensei, O'Quinn sensei and me in the dojo and I was feeling very energetic being one-on-one with two great masters.
Then Witt sensei taught his class during which I've got one more detail on ikkyo. When you step on a side and the hand delivering atemi goes for grab, it's very important to slide it over partner's hand because that bends his elbow and breaks his balance even more! Such a small thing does such a big job! We also did taio hanko, morote dori kokyu ho, some other techniques which I can't really describe correctly. Bill Witt has a lot of techniques in his mind
Then there was weapon training and we did 31 jo kata from 1 to 21. THe phase was a little too fast, but I was trying to keep up with it. Finally I've got it.
