I might not be a leader by nature but learning the Tango has shown me I'm not a natural follower either...
One thing I think it will show me, is how to keep my centre even whilst I'm twisted up like a sweet wrapper... and walking backwards in heels. Beat the daylights out of me and I'm fine, teach me to dance and I pull a stomach muscle. *wince* Maybe Buffy was right, maybe you can kick someone's arse whilst wearing high heels and skin tight clothing... but not right now. I still can't quite decide whether I love the Tango or I just want to throw my partner over my head. I'll stick with it for as long as it improves my balance and not just my pain threshold.

Aikido on Monday was a great session. Lots of weapons work which always makes me grin and hop around like an over excited puppy. Partnering Karate God and Mr Tomiki was particularly good. Mr Tomiki and I were throwing each other around like nobodies business. And... AND I was demo Uke, hurrah! Didn't even land on my head.

The path towards 1st Kyu is slow but steady... L's Ukemi course has done the world of good for my Koshinage landings, as has being thrown about by the lads. I can't think of anything deeper than that to report at the moment. I'm enjoying the journey and that's the important thing... it says here.
