Hey all,

well Saturday lesson, super cool and quite good.
I arrived at the dojo and followed in the teacher in and we chatted as we reached the dojo doors.
We both spilled in and got changed where we chatted some more and the teacher told me of his Aiki philosophy. He said never punch and never attack yet let the attacker attack and you just follow and look the way he is. Never let the attack get to you as the attacker is only attacking himself, he is angry with himself and cannot express this any better. We chatted some more where I realised what he was saying.

This was a nice start to the lesson.
11:30 am came and we where the only ones there so we started the warm up where another one arrived and joined the warm up. The guy wanted to do the 6th Que test which I said ok, yet was not bothered at all. So this is how the lesson was the teacher would show the technique and we did it together. I learned so much and had a very nice lesson which was almost a private lesson.

My ikkyo I guess will improve and also my irimi nage too...

Great lesson, loved it.
