In General Ashi Sabaki Entry Tools Rate This Entry

In my thursday class we learned to effectively block a front punch, and the leg movements, even though very simple (switching stance), was very hard to do quick enough and I totally didn't get it right by the end of class. I decided to start doing ashi sabaki training bit by bit at home because I feel it's very vital.
In the aikijujitsu class we learned a block from the same attack, but with a different method, which was really interesting. I wish I had someone to practice with because these blocks need to be instantaneous to be effective and that can't come without practice..

Well, just as I expected, one lesson after that good one, it was back to normal, with me feeling like a nincompoop with everything I'm doing.
I always tell myself that it's a good thing, I'm still very very new to Aikido, and if I feel i'm not doing things good, I atleast know where to improve!
I had to miss another week because I'm playing a high profile show tonight, but hopefully this will be the last missed class in a very long time.

In General 1 and a half week break Entry Tools Rate This Entry

I took a week and a half break from Aikido for a snowboarding vacation. When i got back, I felt like I quit aikido and had to start it all over again. I was a little nervous at the beginning of the class that I'll suck, but actually it was one of my best days ever. Everything went right for a change!
I'm usually very tight and not flowing, but I felt very loose that day, I didn't use allot of force in the techniques and the instructor even complemented me, which he hardly ever does.. He evevn combined some judo throws with aikido locks on me and i took them easily, usually I'm very surprised if something unexpected happens.
At the end of the class I helped Vicky to train for her 2nd Kiu test. I'm only 5th Kiu, but I had to explain her the difference between Nikyo ura and omote. She asked the instructor and he told her "Roy knows what he's talking about".
I don't know if it helped or not, but I hate taking breaks :/
