In The Dark!
Power went out 5 minutes into the class. We carried on in the dark with a lot of candles being lit around the dojo. It was really neat. There was a whole different set of senses that were brought into play while doing Aikido this way.
We did Gykute Dori Kote Gaeshi. It was really fun. I learned a lot more about Gykute Dori Kote Gaeshi tonight, there was more of a focus on what the Uke's wrist felt like in the pin with the decreased focus on seeing the ukes wrists etc.
The class went by really quickly. It was very different. Most people seemed to like it.
Bought another Gi today. Washing the old one twice in some days was getting a little much.
