An interesting Aikido Day. I was set to head into the Dojo for open training with Rick, however it seemed unlikely that there was going to actually be any time for training today with the amount of things left to get back into place in the dojo. Also Getting started today was not happening very rapidly. I ended up working on Weapons work in the park with Noel for a little over two hours. It was great, but I feel like I am in the special education unit when it comes to weapons. I can't even seem to keep my shoulders relaxed, and I am always scrunching up my whole body in strikes. The whizzing sounds that I like so much came and went throughout the time that we were training.
We worked on the 13 count Kata, the 31 count kata, (Both left and right sided!), and the 20 Jo Suburi. The Suburi was a bit difficult, but I finnaly was able to get through the parts that I have had no clue on. I hope that they stick in my brain or body or somewhere for Wednesday.
