In General Integration - class 2 Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Due to being away for archery next Friday, I decided to go to the Tuesday class this week so I can at least stick to my goal of 1 class per week

Having shaken the nerves from before class 1, this time I was better able to think about what I was doing during the class

We worked on a version of ikkyo where tori moves his hindmost leg about 45 degrees sideways, while dropping his centre (and uke!) straight down. Uke tends to land with a bit of an ooooof!! but the technique is very effective

I'd rushed out late and forgotten my waepons bag but Ivor Sensei loaned me his spare bokken for the 7 suburi. It is a very light bokken so it didn't hurt, and we all got to count from 1 to 10 in Japanese, which was still in the memory bank somewhere

Finally I had my best moment in suwari-waza koyku-ho, at the end of class. I was tired, my arms were feeling the suburi, and my partner was a strong guy... but I relaxed my arms more and more and let my breath power the movement...

Ahhhh - kokyu!!
