June 2012, Another season over

June 2012
Another season over, unfortunately I didn’t grade but there’s always next year.  Somehow didn’t feel encouraged so I wasn’t too confident and had a tight schedule that Saturday. The only problem is the older you get the more difficult to give time and commitment.  Having gaps between Aikikai training always re-enthuses me and I make new discoveries each time I return.
Aikikai  delves into higher levels of energy transmission,  dissipitating force and collecting/steering it to your advantage. I would not recommend it as a self defence because it is very dependant on cooperation and that’s not combat. Yet the training is geared to experience and develop “blending with the uke.”
Personally I take it one step further and ride the force so that I’m the driver and in control. It is exhilarating to say the least.
