In General Day 3 - beginner mind Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Mind was scattered tonight. Never really felt centered. Warm up drills were shaky (felt Sensei's eyes on me - rattled?), but I at least was able to keep up with the 8 direction drill.

Techniques:
Ryotetori Tenchinage
Ryotetori Kokyuho omote
Ryotetori Nikyo omote
Ryotetori shihonage ura

Never really got into the flow of Tenchinage, my hands were wondering all over the place.

Had an interesting sensation preforming Kokyuho - at one point my mind finally settled and I was getting into the grove, during the movement when you raise your arms together and before pivoting and doing the "throw" it felt like there was an exercise ball in between my arms - I could really feel it. Once my mind registered it the sensation disappeared. It was one of the more interesting experiences in all my years of martial arts. Was it Ki? Imagination? Gas? lol Don't know, not sure if I care, but I did enjoy the sensation while it lasted.

Oh Nikyo my old friend, how could you let me down.... most unlearn all techniques that I learned in Dan Zan Ryu - way to much shoulders, way to much muscling - Sensei commenting that your fingers and uke's finger are going white due to exertion is not a compliment heh.

Sticking Points:
NO SHOULDERS
