In General Training my son Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #22 New 12-11-2003 07:28 AM
My 8 year old son has been frequenting the dojo with me on Wendsdays due to cub scout outings that I have been taking him on right after class. We have been working on basic ukemi to start and he is already getting to be a high fligher. He threw me Zemponage a few times and I threw him the same (lightly)a couple of times.

When class started he joined us for our warm up exersises. He's starting to figure out those pretty well too. I think it will be easier to get him to come Fridays to the dojo with me now. I hope my daughter comes too.

I had alot of energy tonight. We had a couple of our new guys show up for class. I always enjoy working with the new people. They tend to progress so fast that you can see and feel it from class to class.

Sensei worked on alot of the technique I will be tested for next. The others being fairly new were able to handle the techniques well. It was good practice to be able to apply these techniques to the newer stiffer ukes. I'm forced to flow the technique properly or, especialy with the one guy, it doesn't work.

gotta go. See you soon.

Kelly

Hehehe --- good to have some lofty aspirations to hope for. How does the saying go..."Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."

I figure he should be sandan and head of North Land Aikido by the age of 20. Or at he very least we will be going to a lot of seminars together.
