Well I arrived a little too early to training and was greeted at the door by Brent sensei.
He Greeted me with the thing we where chatting about in mails during the morning (We where talking about the Kototama and how it may or may not benefit your training).
I entered and started to slowly get changed and looked into the dojo to see only Gerald and another guy training in Jiu Jutsu witch is a shame as there seem to not be too many training just recently for some reason.
I got changed and waited on who would turn up and of course René arrived and we chatted then Paddy turned up and we knew that four training is good.
We went into the dojo and tried a few punches etc on the bag and started class.
Rene had the privilege f taking the warm up (Iirkie nose ichi <-spelt wrong).
Then on to NI and then I was to take the rolling thing we do now witch is basically pretty easy I just needed to learn terms.
We started with the five throws and then onto a couple more witch are more complicated and then we stopped and did jump ukemi witch I am pretty good at from the right side it is only on my left where I get confused and I don't know why. It seems like my brain only likes the right side and nothing more for some reason. I am kind of getting a little upset with this but I know after about a year I will be ok with left and right I just need to sick to it.
Rene has some issues with ukemi and I can't figure this out as he was very good in the Aikikai style and his rolls and falls where coming along in leaps and bounds there yet in this type of style he is failing some what but I also know that he is not too bothered about this.
I on the other hand are really trying my best at the moment, I am turning into the Aikido geek…
Most of my time is spent on reading and writing all I can along with my usual duties in life like work and learning German but in the front and foremost of my mind is Aikido.
I know that I may succeed in what I have in mind for the long term I just hope I make it in time or before I die..
