I been working on becoming a 6th kuy for like 6 months, now. I not only memorized them, but can do them all with my eyes closed or thats what I thought.
I know how to say Shomenuchi Kokyunage ....however , I know in my head how to Kokyunage and that it has for steeps. However, everyother time I do it I make the last tow steeps into one seep. It's like me and dubble slap rolse, same dellima. I know it contioly, but its like when I get scared I blank. I must have a phobia to it or somehting. I need to figure that out!
I geting perdy good at Katatetori Shihonage... only truble is knowing the defrence in how to pronoce Katatetori and katatori. They sound the same to me so I have to watch people moths when they say them. ( Auttory porcing disorder, must be kicking in).
I preddy good at shomenuchi Iriminage, only just have to rember go strate rather then too the side and keep arm start.
I know how to do Katatori Nikiyo, with my eye close, only need to work on the pin a litte bit.
Today in class got many ponters form sinsay becaue we did a lot of work on requriments. Onter then messing up on the 4 steps into 1 he says your more then readdy for you test. I nonded, for onece I think I am readdy too!
I read this qute by Henry Ford "Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal". This qute remeded me of Aikido.
In my dojo , we are thought that you have to look to where you want your naga to go and not at the process of geting there. I was thinking that much like mr. Ford's qute when we take our minds and eyes off of what we relly want to accoplish we are dummed to fail.
tell me what you all think.
