Well I returned yesterday to Aikido after five days of holiday in Germany with the In-laws.
I was very apprehensive for some reason and I was not quite in the correct frame of mind yet I went anyway.
I was met at the door by Rene and a big smile. We got changed and chatted about stuff and then Joss arrived and he was back after two weeks in Cyprus. We went inside and worked out on the bag for a while and did a little Kata training so we feel a little better for the grading.
Mrs. Brent Sensei was in Jiu Jutsu and so was sword guy wearing a white belt witch was weird to see but good none the less. Brent wanted us to clean the mats so we got buckets of water and rags and cleaned the Aikido mats, witch was nice.
We chatted about a few things and then Rene took the warm up. We then did rolling and the usual normal warm up stuff. We then did ten rolls on each side and more after that. We then did Yonkajo over and over until we knew how to do it.
I felt not myself in this lesson and could not concentrate for some reason and felt a little tired and I think this was due to the break I had and over doing it a little on my break, we will see on Thursday if this is the case.
