Aikido Lesson 1st one of 2010

Early this week I called my new sensei getting all the information on starting my new art with my new dojo,now I have been to this dojo before but there was hardly anyone there I thought this might be a small club, anyway when I turned up the kids lesson was just coming to a end at this point another 10 to 15 people turned up.

To be honest the lesson went by in blur lots of new names and ideas to take in and I am guessing this is the same the world over; there was a lot of focus on centre and 1st form, the warm up was awesome I am happy to say my ukemi is solid my sensei told me at the end of the lesson it was good to see my ukemi’s and it was a good solid start into aikido, luckily for me I was not the only new boy, but the people where helpful and friendly I cant wait for my lesson tonight.

I know this is short and sweet I will try to remember more as the lessons go so I can report back on how I am doing

Oh yes lol the next day I was like a lump of lead very sore but happy :)

Glad to hear your first class went well.

You have good ukemi already? Have you practiced other martial arts such as judo or jujutsu?

I hope your enthusiasm never wanes and if you ever visit Hamilton, pop in and train with us :)

Glad to hear it went well. If you want to write about your classes often, you should start up a blog. :) I didn't think to start mine till I had been in it for a couple months. Have you done martial arts before?
