August 29, 2005 Yudansha test ukemi

Sensei Rick Stickles of Aikido Schools of New Jersey is here for our second seminar this summer. This doesn't usually happen. He comes here once every year, but usually around Christmas time I think. My Sensei was one of his students. He was actually among the first four students that Stickles Sensei trained to black belt.

We had dan tests on Saturday. One nidan and two sandans. Sensei called me up to take ukemi during the freestyle portions of all the tests. So I was one among four people. I was so excited. I only went "splat" a couple of times. Oh yeah, and one of the sandans grabbed my face on a tsuki and threw me. I thought, "Whoa, I can't see," as his big mitt was covering my entire face.

I've been taking quite a bit of ukemi for Stickles Sensei. This has been a very good experience for me. We have two more classes left.
