Well just back from lesson and Had a super lesson.
I arrived a little later than usual and was greeted at the door by Rene who had also just arrived,wich was nice.
We got changed together and chatted about stuff. We went into the dojo and looked at todays quite huge lesson adn where impressed by the super turn out for Jiu Jutsu. Paddy arrived and we all watched on as they rolled around the floor placing each other in strange positions and rather nasty looking holds.
our lesson started with Brent Sensei telling us that we should focus on the Aiki way yet also not limit ourselfs to this by not trying new things, such as Jiu Jutsu!
The lesson started with the usual warm up and the rolls etc, then on to attacks from a sword. We did Shihunage, hijiate and also the same version of throws as Tuesday.
It does seem that our lessons have gone up a notch and are becoming more and more tecnical and it is not just me who is noticing this.
