It's been a long time since I've had a session as good as teh one last night. For a while now Aikido has just been passing the time. I've had fun finally getting to know everyone at Butlins and just learning about people but Aikido itself has just been drifting.
Last night suddenly the dynamism was there, my centre was lower. I still finish most moves tottering around like I'm half-cut but it was much better than usual.
Now, however, I'm shagged! and not in a good way. My upper arms are both bruised from Ryote higi dori and I'm dangerously close to falling asleep at the front desk and drooling all over my keyboard.
Saturday night was spent watching Twin Warriors/Tai Chi Master. The fight scenes were ludicrous! I may have to get my own copy from somewhere...
