In General Donovan Waite Sensei seminar day 1 Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #9 New 03-08-2003 10:31 AM
Today the Donovan Waite Sensei seminar started in Rotterdam. I went with some other persons from our dojo.
Lesson started with a long stretching, followed by ukemi parctise. I still don't understand why people talk about special Donovan Waite Style ukemi, because it sure looks like normal and ordinary ukemi to me. Still people claim it is special.
We continued with simple tenkan and irimi exercises, which were followed by various forms of shi ho nage and irimi nage. Of course the first session was ended with suwari waza ryotedori kokyu ho.
After lunch again a nice and long stretching followed by ukemi practise. Then we practised kote gaeshi,ude kime nage and some irimi nage again and then the more complicated techniques started, two kokyu nages (yes I know this isnot very informative but my body is still processing the training and so I wont even start at describing them) followed by kanseki otoshi. End again we ended with suwari waza ryote dori kokyu ho (surprise??).
I like Donovan Waite Sensei a lot. Besides a good looking man, he is also a very soft, friendly, smiling and gentil teacher. He feels so gentil, but in the same time techniques are so good and subtile.
