Bopped in the head! Morning Class!!!
Wow this was a great class. Sensei is still working with us on good bases, and being grounded. We worked on Tai No Henko with boppers. This was a good exercise in Uke actually initiating, it was wonderful. Then we did Kote Gaieshi with boppers, like boken takeaways without any consequences it was wonderful. I was crash test dummy and worked with Sensei it was unbelievable! He bopped me in the head right away before I even moved, then said that I needed to establish a connection to him so that I would move instead of getting bopped. I did, the room disappeared, and I moved at just the right time. It was awesome! We did that two or three times he as Uke me as Nage! Wow!!!!! He also worked with Linda, and was talking about connection. One of the moves was Kote Gaieshi and he ducked under the bopper! Later he said that was something that probably would only happen once, and was the essence of Aikido, moving with the energy and flowing with everything.
A great day on the mat!!!!
