Re: What's your Specialty?

Hi Ron,

I was just thinking about you. We've both lapsed a bit with our aikido blogs, and I was wondering how you were doing.

I'm doing pretty well, but it's been a busy summer -- especially with a baby in the house. :-D

I'm still training, though, and that's the important thing.

Regards,

----

Re: What's your Specialty?

I'd say my speciality is ukemi/being uke. Not that im a master or anything

Giving a good attack, regaining balance, continuing the attack if tori lapses, softer breakfalls, kaeshi waza.

Those are the things that I love teaching, that and an enjoyment of aikido, plus sexy technique.

The way I see it is that you cant be a good tori unless your a good uke.

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.

I'll drink to that, although I'm not sure it's strictly true

I know what you mean Mark, perhaps I should have used 'aikidoka' instead of tori?
