Tuesday night's class was my introduction to the wonderful world of pressure points (aside from wrist locks) in Aikido. I think Aikido is the only activity I've ever done where I can experience sharp pain and hilarity at the same time.

One technique that I got to demo with sensei involved me doing tsuki and sensei doing irimi and going down to one knee and basically pushing me down onto my stomach. From there he applied his yonkyo point to a pressure point in my calf. Ouch! Wow - that was a surprisingly intense pain which caused me to slap the mat with both hands. It was also really funny. Sensei kept applying the pressure over and over causing me to slap the mat like a fish out of water. It was more fun when I got to apply it to my uke a few minutes later.
