In General Technically easy for a 14 year old.... Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Hey All,

Still wondering id anyone but myself reads this?

Well last night I went to Aikido and found myself very lost in strange techniques that I and most of the class could not do!

We started with the usual warm-up and stretching that lasted nearly half an hour.
We then did turns and then rolls.We then started the lesson with Chops to the head.

This I found had many variations which was good to learn something that is kind of not thought.We then moved to chopping the head and blocking an oncoming chop.

Then techniques form the chop and different ways to do this.
this is where everyone became universally stupid and no one could do the techniques.

We struggled with this over and over until the end of class.

Where the teacher wanted two people to attack one person and only using an entering attack (which name I do not know).

The first guy (Ex marine) was moving like a pregnant Yak.
The second guy (black belt and hakama)was too aggressive,and also was like a ballerina elephant.
The third was a girl (Has done Aikido for 15 years)was ok yet her distance from use was too large.
The fourth was me,I cannot say that I was good at all and moved like a tone!
The fifth was a 14 year old girl who had the grace of a butterfly and the technique that would impress any one watching.

I left in shame and disappointment.

Today looking back at last night I have learned that most of the technique is relaxation!!
If I relax and try not to think too much and use aggression my technique will be better.

Till Friday

Yup, somebody reads them.... Everyone has days like this. When I'm feeling particularly stupid, I always think of a training session I had on Maui. Suzuki sensei (8th dan) was making us do bokken drills in groups of five. We'd gotten into drills most of us really didn't know, so the group that was with Curtis sensei (7th dan, Suzuki sensei's senior student) naturally watched him to see what they should do. And he *totally* led them astray, so the whole fivesome got completely mixed up. He calmly said, "Oh well, brain fade" and went on with the class. I was really impressed. So I always tell myself, *everybody* has days like that, and the thing to do is grin and keep going. Mary Kaye
