In General Kokyu slap! Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #15 New 06-17-2003 09:56 PM
Back to "normal" tonight.

First we did something that I can't remember the name for. From katatedori you cross step in, then take a step forward and diagonal and turn your wrist over, so they loose their grip. Pretty cool.

Did shihonage second, for about twenty minutes, it seemed. I like doing something a bunch like that, it lets me try stuff and see what works and what doesn't. As in catching Josh's gi sleeve in my face doesn't work, but I found that after you finish the movement (same hand, same foot thing), if you keep a hold on the wrist and pull back it really throws uke farther, almost like a kotegaeshi.

Worked on iriminage from mortedori. That was sweet. Gravity is my friend. I paired off with my sister for that one and she was really getting into it. Fun fun fun. My hip hurts.

Anyway, getting to the title of the entry...during kokyudosa at the end, I paired off with my sister again, and so we're going along, la de da, up, over, pin, up, over, pin, etc. Next thing I know she comes up but not high enough so when she started coming over to unbalance me, my hand slipped off her wrist and she slapped me in the face. I went with it (was still holding her other arm) and she started laughing hysterically.

I demonstrated to sensei what she did and he started cracking up, too. :]

Weapons class is going to start in 9 days (two Thursdays from today) and I'm pumped about that. Just the small bit of bokken and jo kata we did at the seminar was enough to get me hooked.

Well, until Thursday...

The little finger first is the grip from the bokken...you'll find it has good power, and establishes a firm connection to your partner, shite or uke. Ron

Yeah...she sometimes complains when I hold too tight, though. Certainly wasn't expecting that! Little finger first, eh? Hmm, have to try that. For most ukemi I use a full-hand grab and for most nage I use more of a cupping grab, so I don't unbalance myself.

Gives new meaning to the term "atemi" doesn't it? You might want to think about gripping firmly (little finger first) and not letting your hand slip off when doing kokyu...good story! Ron
