In General An Incredible Shihonage Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Last night I had a wonderful time teaching the class. Don couldn't make it to teach, I was a bit disappointed because I wasn't going to get to train, but...........

Towards the end of class I was showing the technique of Yokomen-uchi shihonage. Anguel was my uke. He is a tough guy! Always gives me a hard time and very strong attacks.

He went to strike........I slowly performed the technique of shihonage.

Slowly I picked him up off his feet........took him around and..........threw him to the ground. The whole time, his feet were about two feet off the ground. I wish I could have had a video recorder going.

I got home last night and was having a nice conversation with my wife.

For the first time, she told me she is amazed at my movements and the power of my techniques. She said that my movements are not the same anymore.

She asked me when I started understanding Aikido......She actually got me thinking about it.........

Wasn't until last night........funny thing is that if feels that way each time I reach a new level...wasn't till I got there that I understood it, and when I look back beyond that point always feels like I thought I had it but must not have.......
