I took a week and a half break from Aikido for a snowboarding vacation. When i got back, I felt like I quit aikido and had to start it all over again. I was a little nervous at the beginning of the class that I'll suck, but actually it was one of my best days ever. Everything went right for a change!
I'm usually very tight and not flowing, but I felt very loose that day, I didn't use allot of force in the techniques and the instructor even complemented me, which he hardly ever does.. He evevn combined some judo throws with aikido locks on me and i took them easily, usually I'm very surprised if something unexpected happens.
At the end of the class I helped Vicky to train for her 2nd Kiu test. I'm only 5th Kiu, but I had to explain her the difference between Nikyo ura and omote. She asked the instructor and he told her "Roy knows what he's talking about".
I don't know if it helped or not, but I hate taking breaks :/
