Worked with Rick. One of the things that we discovered was that I was pushing back on him right at the end of the blend, In Shino Nage when he pulled back, so that our energy together tipped him backward. This was a great way to take his balance, in fact it worked amazingly well. Sensei came over and we aked him about it. He said that it was either my Aikido personality comming out, and that it would work with me, or that I had gone down a Cul d sac and would soon be doing it different. He favored the Cul D Sac. So I worked on doing with a roll off instead of the way that I was doing it. It was an interesting thing though. Rick had never felt it before.
Did some Jua Wazza with Rick and Candice. It was fun.
Sensei ran me through an entire test with Rick and only mentioned that I as the testie was responsible for starting the walking and bowing in and out of everything. The mock test seemed to go well. It was shorter than I would have imagined it.
Too Tired to go to Evening Aikido. I will get in some more on Thursday, and again on Sunday.
