Entries for the Month of January 2005

In General Randori, again, finally...and a seminar next month Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Classes have been going well. We're gearing up for a test next month, but I'm not sure exactly when. I'll be testng for 1st kyu.

Last night, only the senior students showed up for some reason, but we had a very good class. We worked on a few test techniques, and finally got to do some full-speed randori!

When it's just the more experienced students, the class has a more relaxed and more productive feel. That's not to say that I dislike working with beginners! I enjoy both experiences, but it's nice to work with experienced ukes only, from time to time.

We did randori in hamni handachi against two uke toward the end of class. I felt pretty good about how I did. The first time I went, I quickly got caught up with my attackers, but still managed to keep going in spite of that. The second time, I did a much better job of moving and did not get caught up as quickly.

Lastly, Ellis Amdur is coming to my neck of the woods again, and I think I'll go to his seminar!

In General An organizational shakeup? Entry Tools Rate This Entry

The new year seems to be starting out pretty well. I think we'll be testing again soon -- maybe in February. I think I'll be testing for 1st kyu.

My graduate school schedule leaves aikido class nights open this semester. I can't guarantee that I'll make each class, but I'm pretty sure I can commit to Thursday and Saturday classes.

I found out last night that there's been something of a shake-up in our parent organization. I really don't know very much at all about what happened, and I doubt very much that it will affect us at our dojo, but it would be nice to know what's going on, and what is going to happen next.
