In General Nikkyo Gone Terribly, Horribly Wrong Entry Tools Rate This Entry

You know one of those days when you just feel completely in the groove? It seems like time slows down just for you, because it's like things are flowing perfectly --- you're moving in just the right way and at just the right times that it's as though you've set up your ukes to take their falls just at those ideal, split-second-window-of-opportunity moments that make them impede each other...these are the moments we train for, those moments of pure, unadulterated bliss when you're flying high and you don't think anything could possibly bring you down. *sigh*

Well, it was a beautiful randori up until that point.

Ken came at me Ryokatadori (double shoulder grab) and I *tried* to reciprocate with a double Nikkyo...in retrospect (while waiting for three hours in Urgent Care at the hospital) I figured that I could have done a number of other things that would have been better --- particularly a technique that, when done improperly, would not cause me to drop my weight right on my locked arms, thus spraining both my own rotator cuffs rather badly. I could have done the throw where you cut the elbow down while simultaneously lifting uke's other elbow. I could have done the throw where you irimi and go for the guy's face/throat. But noooooooo...

Suffice it to say, I'll be sitting on the bag tonight and possibly for a few subsequent nights until these puppies heal up. :-P
