Woo! Aikido was fun last night. We did some new, weird stuff. We did a tsuki kotagaeshi type thing where we grabbed uke's hand underhanded, stepped under his arm into a sankyo grip and then turned him back around into the kotagaeshi grip and did something very much like iriminage to throw him. Weird, but fun.

My front rolls are continuing to improve, though on my first or second roll on my right side I landed badly on my side bruising it all up. Ouch. My left side, though, was pretty good.

We also did a new version of kokyu where we locked out uke's elbows and then pushed up into his shoulders to throw him. Odd, but it worked. Kinda.

Lindsay is just totally kicking butt. I tempted to be a little jealous - she's just doing fantastic. She's definetly testing in a few weeks. She's gone to class 4 times this week, to my 2 times. I keep telling myself that I have to give my ankle plenty of time to fully heal and that there's no problem with me testing for 5th kyu in August. I'm sure I'll be fully ready by then.

I love Aikido!!
