Once again I set off in the cold Holland weather to the second place that Brent has foe Shinkendo.
Put side of the door was a tramp listening to the morning news on a radio he must have found or been given by some one.
I said "Hello and good Morning" to him and he replied by giving me some type of animal grunting noise which was comforting as I knew he was alive and drunk which meant he was happy and alive.I went up the stairs and took of my shoes before I entered and was met by the clacking of wooden tonfa and bo staffs.
My most favourite thing in the world is opening them doors as it is like opening the doors to an old Japanese dojo and seeing the people training hard and the noise is super nice.
I went over to Joss and the other guy and got my self changed and then started to get the mats out and all.
We started off with some basic movements and some kind of Kata and then set off to do the first set of movements which I kind of know how to do but not really in Jiu waza which I know I must do but I am finding I have Jiu Waza block at the moment and I know why but cannot stop it.
The class was nice and at the end there was more Jiu Waza and this time I was asked to do it with Jerald who had last week broken me, this week he managed to only really exhaust me and not hurt me as much.
What I did notice was that the reason why I get so damaged feet is that I fall wrongly and not in the Yoshinkan way but only in the Aikikai way and so my ankles and feet get right royally messed up.
This I know will change in time so I am not too bothered about it but I am a little upset about getting my technique better.
