well we had another torture session last night ......oh no wait a minute that was aikido we were doing sorry my bad. so any way some bright spark who shall remain nameless decided to ask our sensei if we could practice doing backwards ukemi ...........and what do i go do again oh yes you guessed it my bloody shoulder (but on a brighter note i actually managed to do the afore mentioned ukemi with out collapsing in an undignified heap) and we did forward ukemi too (yeay me i did it) also i noticed that the guys in my dojo seem to have lost there razors as i now have stubble rash on my arm from doing that technique were you bring your arm across there face (i cant remember the name of the technique so if any body who reads this can tell me what it is id be most greatful for the input ) bad bad mr sensei (who actally is a very nice man really (ok im creeping)) didnt even give me chance to uke for him properly as wen i went to grab him he moved outta the way and sent me flying before i knew what was going on and yet again spent most of the lesson yelling at me for doing the technique to fast or yelling at me to keep my back straight all his shouting he made me cry (i really dont like being shouted at) but i didnt let him see!
oooooooooooo yes but he did redeem himself some what by putting my shoulder back in to place so may be i should let him off with the yelling incident what do you think?
well its time to go rescue the school from my youngest son , so take care my aiki lovers, and watch this space for more tales from the aiki side
