I managed to miss morning class, because I have too many clocks in my life. And two of them are an hour fast. Look at one that is an hour fast, and subtract a full hour instead of noting that it is 10 minutes to the hour, and bam you have managed to miss class entirely before you realize the mistake that you have made. I was pretty upset about it, because the morning classes are my favorites. Oh well.

In evening class we again worked on Kate Dori Ikkyo. Worked with Linda, it is amazing that she has a circle in a place that I can't even figure out how it gets there. She said that I was a good Uke. Worked with Don on hand blade grab part of Ikkyo. It was a lot of fun.

Sensei used me in a demonstration to show how to ikkyo people with big hands. The trick is not to use your thumb, but instead to use your base of your thumb, and your fingers as a hook. Kind of like a J. It was awesome! I got moved around in a circle so that everyone could see what was going on, and it was completely natural. My wrist definitely feels stretched a lot!

It was a good class. I had a lot of energy bunched up in my body, lots of stress from some non-aikido life work that I am doing right now. It was so so good to get on the mat and forget the rest of the world.

Rolling practice did not go as well as Tuesday, I was in a lane by myself, and I did better with the right side, than with the left, but not as smooth as Tuesday by a long shot.

About way through class I started trying to do things in one breath like sensei was talking about last week. How does anyone get all of this together.

Sensei was talking tonight about how he has the physical parts down, and works on the internal things like saying blessings for people as he is tossing them on the mat. WOW! I can't figure out where the mat is sometimes, and Sensei is blessing me as I am whirling about!
