So I had a little trouble sleeping last night. I've been anxious to get back to training tomorrow. I don't want to say that I'm trying to impress but I do want my Sensei and fellow Aikidoka to know that I am serious about my Aikido practice.
First thing this morning I did a little ukemi pratice on the living room carpet. I also attached a belt to the wall on a swivel to emulate uke's arm while practicing moving under for shio-nage. I did vairous ki exercises as well. My son really enjoys Funakogi Undo.
My wife wrote a list of things that need to get done in preparation for our new bundle of joy on wed. I hope he sleeps like my first son did but I'm aware it won't happen. I'm not working nights anymore so getting to the dojo will be alot easier on me since I can go to the evening classes. I'm so excited to have Aikido in my life again. I hope one day everyone can find out how awesome it really is.
