Well I am back after a very long and tiresome time away from Aikido.
I was super sick for a while and am on new meds which making being in public very hard and very tiresome. So today after a week or so making myself mentally prepared for class I went!
It was nice to see all the old faces there and also to get some nice practice there as well.
Rene is staying at our place so we met at the dojo, super nice as well to see him there as well.
So the lesson started with us doing the usual warm up, René took this and Brent Sensei kept on stopping him and telling him where he was going wrong, this was super strange as he never stops the warm up, but any way this is who it went.
We then did kihon dosa again. this time he went to Rene and told him where he was going wrong right up until we had stopped doing all of the techniques.
We then went on to do the five techniques of which I forget the name of them.
But it was
1 - turn nikajo and then ikajo
2 - turn yonkajo
3 - shihonage
4 - sankajo
5 - hijiate
We did this in a group where one man stood in the middle and we all went at him.
Was ok but Gerald and Gihme had such ego it was pretty off putting and made me feel a little uncomfortable also Rene as he was also complaining about this after the class as well.
Was an ok class but I was a little upset about the ego's.
