Class on Saturday went pretty well, except for a freak fall that tourqued my left elbow a bit. My elbow is feeling better now, so I guess the fall wasn't that bad.

Right at the beginning, during our warm-up ukemi, my instructor commented on my forward rolls. I was quickly able to make the correction that he pointed out, but I guess I get sloppy at times.

The empty hand work went well, and the weapons stuff was interesting. My instructor's first instructor taught some techniques with hanbo (3' stick). We worked with a couple of them, utilizing aikido movements. We ended the first one in a choke, and the second was a shihonage. In both cases, uke had a tanto.

More on stick techniques can be found in a book by Masaaki Hatsumi and Quintin Chambers. Meik Skoss calles it "an excellent work on tanjojutsu, based on techniques of the Kukishin-ryu." It's titled Stick Fighting: Techniques of Self-Defense. I'm tempted to pick up that book. But then again, I'm tempted to pick up a lot of books.
