Today was my first weapons class since my return... I did quite well overall. Still hurt from thursday missed ukemi but as long as I do the complete technique and don't try to stop or shortcut it in any way, I'm good since I don't have to stress my thoracic muscles.
We did Jo training, it was nice since I didn't get to train with a partner for the last two years.
One member of the dojo was there with his daughter for the kids class just before us. I wonder if my kid will love Aikido as much as his father in a few years... I certainly hope to bring him over a couple of times.
Between the kids class and ours, there is 30 minutes. I did some free practice (rolls) about 80. My original goal was 100 for the first time in 2 years but the mat became overcrowded so I decided to stop.
