Aiki-Log -- Class #17
Thursday, September 24, 2004 -- 7:30pm

Norbert Sensei taught class today. Once again, 100% test prep. This time I got to work with one of our kyu-less guys that will actually be testing for 9th and 8th. He and one other person are doing that and they really wanted to work on 8th kyu test stuff. Since I was already paired up with the lone 9th kyu (his wife wasn't there) we split them up and each took one.

IF YOU'RE GRUNTING… BACK UP
I let him choose what he wanted to do since I'm not testing. He wanted to focus exclusively on the four techniques on the test, as shite. I was able to provide some useful guidance since I've only just recently (re)learned these techniques myself. Unfortunately, we were both making the same mistake; muscling the nikkajo. We found out that simply increasing the distance between shite and uke by a few inches makes it work without force. If you're too close it doesn't work right. Ma-ai… what a concept.
