Don't worry, Joao. By the time you are ready for your first test you Will know the names of the techniques. At least the ones on your first test!

Re: First class of Aikido

Well, this website is a good start.

It's best to ask you Sensei to recommend a book, as your style may differ in technique to those in a book that I might recommend.

Glad you liked your first lesson. I'm coming up to my first grading soon, as is my 9-year old daughter. We both love Aikido!

Re: First class of Aikido

Try this, Joao, http://www.aikiweb.com/wiki/techniques

It's the 5th link downward from the upper left corner, and it has what Aikiweb considers a general consensus of terms for attacks, and techniques. The rest of the aiki-wiki itself has plenty to offer as well.

Enjoy your next class as well as your first!

Re: First class of Aikido

Yeah, don't worry too much about the names of the techniques, you'll pick them up. In my first grading we were given a list of techniques in the order we would have to do them... During the grading I actually started the technique Sensei asked for rather than the one that was supposed to come next, and I didn't even know I'd picked up the names. Of course the other three did the technique that was supposed to be next so it looked like I got it wrong

If it's stupid but works, it isn't stupid.

Re: First class of Aikido

I wouldn't count on just listening at class for remembering techniques. I've seen plenty of ppl (well, more like 5) who got to their first test without knowing any technique name. I wish I could give you some of the links I used to learn technique names, but that was more than a year ago...

If you can spare the money, Aikido3D (http://www.aikido3d.com/) is a good learning tool for techniques and their names!
