Had another randori session. I have this love-hate relationship with randori. I think it looks incredibly beautiful and it really displays aikido at its best sometimes. But it's always not that easy being uke for me as my ukemi skills at high breakfalls still leave much to be desired.

Nevertheless, being nage, gives me a lot of practice and last Wednesday was no exception. I don't think I did as well as I did the last time but I figure it's one of those things, the more I practice, the better I will get at it.

This time I had two very good guys be my ukes and one very good woman...all senior to me and I think they did pace it a bit to suit my ability. Ended up doing a lot of turning on the spot repeatedly cos I always seemed to have two ukes about to attack so I was thinking in retrospect, I'm pretty sure I made some mistakes there and should have tried moving away a bit! Would have made it harder for me to get so surrounded.
