In General So NOW sensei starts Utemi practice! :) Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #27 New 01-17-2006 03:56 AM
Having taken up Kung Fu specifically to get the oportunity to learn attacking and timing skills, R now starts on Utemi. I must be psychic.

Apparantly NO-ONE other than M will be grading! Put down that banner and step _away_ from the politics Frac. Doesn't bother me in the slightest but it might upset others I'm told. I would have refused even if I'd been asked, I KNOW I'm not that good yet!! I will be but not yet

Great session last night despite getting a swipe to the nose that had my eyes watering... Partnering S was fun (it wasn't him that swiped me, just thought I'd point that out!), he's been off for a long time after putting his back out but now he's back and on form. Ah, where would I be without my Aikido men?! Any boyfriend I have (ah ha ha ha ha ah ahahahaha *cough* like when hell freezes over) will have to be very secure because I won't be giving these guys up any time soon!

At one point I did a great, slightly adapted, version of Irimi nage and Sensei asked if I thought it was good. I said no... I didn't really mean no I just felt like I had no centre, like it was purely timing. Oh Dear. I mean it was pretty good, I'm just preprogrammed (from where I don't know) to think that saying I'm good means =no further effort required= and I always have to watch that tendancy like a HAWK. I can always be better but my lazy arse gene has to be supressed.

I am getting there though thanks to Martial Arts and various other things...

We need an entry emoticon for KNACKERED. *clunk* zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Day 11 of 30 day list of the 1 thing you're working on each day. Hans Goto Sensei says that the utemi is to capture the mind. But it's also there for extension so you can fill yourself out and create the correct angle to capture the center of uke as well.

I've taken to heart Hans Goto Sensei's advice from Saito Sensei to note every day the one thing that I've taken away from practice so that at the end of 30 days I'll have 30 techniques. I'm posting them to our Aikido Advice for Women & a Few Men Facebook Page. Here is one of them: Day 7 of 30 day list of the 1 thing you're working on each day. I'm discovering the balance between being floppy and just being relaxed and letting movement carry me through.
