In General I've been a long time... Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Althought in truth I think it's only been about two weeks since my last Aikido session. Kung Fu seriously over stretched my back, so whilst I can jump around, punch bags and wave swords in the air (both boken and Iaito) I've been nervous about breakfalling.

I think maybe I NEED my weekly head thump though because my neck has been incredibly stiff. Off to the Physio again I think...

In General A Good Session Entry Tools Rate This Entry

It's been a long time since I've had a session as good as teh one last night. For a while now Aikido has just been passing the time. I've had fun finally getting to know everyone at Butlins and just learning about people but Aikido itself has just been drifting.

Last night suddenly the dynamism was there, my centre was lower. I still finish most moves tottering around like I'm half-cut but it was much better than usual.

Now, however, I'm shagged! and not in a good way. My upper arms are both bruised from Ryote higi dori and I'm dangerously close to falling asleep at the front desk and drooling all over my keyboard.

Saturday night was spent watching Twin Warriors/Tai Chi Master. The fight scenes were ludicrous! I may have to get my own copy from somewhere...

Now, keep the noise down I'm having a nap.

I'm sure my boss won't mind!

Have been to the aforementioned Kung Fu class.
It now hurts every time I breathe, which is a new and exciting development. Worth every wince though. It will be interesting to see how I get on in Aikido tonight.

To misquote Forrest Gump, "Martial arts are like a box of chocolates... in reverse." They appear different from the outside but when you look a bit closer there are moves and philosophies at the centre that are very similar. Already I can see one of the guards/blocks looks very much like Ikyo.

The best thing is, I can feel my centre lowering already. There are times when I've been convinced I've had ear trouble, my sense of balance is so bad!

I managed to whack my Iaido Instructor on the hand with a boken (beginners luck!). Spent last night throughly confused, getting help from two students who were off the mat to one side. Them "right foot back" ,"turn left","diagonal cut", Me "wha...?", "oh dear", "oops".

And can I just say (to whoever runs this site) I love the halloween Kanji on the homepage.
