Well It was Saturday lesson time again.
I awoke at 06:30 am and it was hot,damn hot.
I sat and had breakfast in the Garden and watched Saturday morning T.V (Basically Dragon ball Z, love it!)
I arrived at the Dojo at normal time and met the sensei there, got changed and waited for people to arrive. I was greeted by the old guy and the talkie brothers, I hate them.
The talkie brothers talk walking up the stairs and talk getting changed talk on the mat talk through technique show and talk as they are doing technique! It makes me cringe as it shows lack of respect for the sensei his class and the fellow Aikidoka!
Well as it was super hot on the top floor of the school and the sensei was hot he said we would have a nice easy lesson where we would not sweat! LIAR!!??!!.
We did Ikyo,Nikajo and Sankajo! all standing!
this was supposed to be done slowly and with perfect techniques yet with no throw at the end.
The old guy i was training with was sweating as i cranked it up a little and i was also sweating as i now take my Aikido very seriously in deed and want to get good at it!
Half way through the class Angry hakama guy turned up and did not join, for reason i still don't know!
He sat and watched with his usual expressionless face and his eye's burning into the back of my neck.
The talkie boys walked off the mat STILL TALKING!!
