well we had a full class for once which was good, as there were plenty of people to practice with. usual round of warm ups then we started on tenkan which would have been good if my knee hadnt given out on me.
then we did that 'knee walkin exercise' cant remember what you call it.
then we went on to do this technique,wer we grabbed there shoulders creating a ring of energy,, and sensei applied this to us all but wen it came to my turn he threw me and i must have looked as if i was going to land badly cos he quiet roughly grabbed my arm and pulled me up.
then disaster struck wen he asked us to practice our ukemis, now you know im really bad at these and tend to cower in the corner wen asked to do them,but he calmly explaind i had to keep trying or i could get hurt wen beenig uke................... so i gave it my best shot and hey i did it and with his help i even did a near perfect backwards ukemi.
sad thing is we are having dojo problems that and not many people turn up, and sensei said he may just stop altogether which will be a shame i have come to like the people i train with and ok so he yells at me alot have even come to have respect for my sensei.
ok enough of this im gonna watch some tv andtry to regain feeling in my right arm back next week for more tales from the aiki side
