Was just frickin' rad. Nuff said, really. However, in the interest of science: We worked on Chiba Sensei's Sansho 1 and a couple other exercises with jo outside because the air was still chillier inside. Some awase and a new kind of "mirror" exercise using tsuki and kesa. The weather started out cold and cloudy and finished with brilliant blue sky poking through thick clouds and warm sunshine radiating down to the Eart'.
Came back inside for taijutsu and worked on kokyu ho; kokyu nage; and nikkyo from seigan hand position. As we closed out class with our usual abreviated chinkon kishin I had the notion of entering into a circle/space equating to displacement, and entering out of the circle as creating a hole. I'll have to play with that imagery a bit. Sensei has mentioned in the past about the need to be able to coalesce/appear and to disappear and it related to something I was working on in the Sansho kata.
Now to clean house and squeeze in some follow up jo work as time presents itself.
Have a great weekend!
