Possibly an endless train of possibly Aikido related thought.

It has been agreed that drinking and the makiwara board are not a good mix.

I've never ever really written any of this down and I was mulling over it the other night and there were bits that seemed fuzzy so I'm going to write it all down and see what I end up with.

If any of this makes any kind of sense to anyone..........

Cauldron stiring: Tenchi nage, Kote gaeshi, kaiten nage. Imagine standing in front of a large cauldron of something really thick like porridge and stiring with a large pole. To stir you have to move your whole body from the hips in a circle.

Morning yawn: Suwari waza kokyu ho, Irimi nage, shiho nage. Lifting the upper body/pushing the arms forward with the spine.

Switch morning yawn: Ude kime nage, Tenchi nage, Sumi otoshi, irimi nage. Collapsing the body inward and forward/down.

Screwing in: Ikkyo-rokkyo. Irimi nage, shiho nage, ude kime nage, kote gaeshi (?).
Turning the foot outwards producing tension in the hips and back, pulling the body down.

More later.

....you're standing on one foot and you're relaxed and the guy, who's bigger than you, is leaning into you and pushing as hard as he can and breathing heavily. And you're just standing there wondering what to do with your free floating foot.

Then he says "How do you do that?" and you have no idea because you've only just realised that you can do it!

The other question I have to answer "I don't know" to is "Which posture do I need to be in?" Sensei says that at my level I shouldn't be bothered about which posture I'm in, so I'm not. But lower kyu grades have to be so I spend a lot of time going back and figuring out which posture they should be starting in.

Other people make me realise how much I do intutively; how much my body just does by itself.
