Shikkyo, Ikkyo, Nikkyo
Started the night doing iriminage. I seem to get it mostly right. Once in a while I'm not connecting the person to my center as well as I'd like.
The we did some suwari waza. First omote and ura ikkyo's. They we moved on to a nikkyo. Somewhere in the middle we practiced just moving around (Shikkyo). So we spent a lot of time on our knees. This was particularly tough for Kim as he doesn't have the best knees to begin with. I felt as though I did well enough. It wasn't until the end that I got the nikkyo's down to the point where they looked good. At least I got to end on a successful note.
Not sure why but Kim got pounded last night. Sensei picked on him a lot to demonstrate various nikkyo's. It could be that he wants me to see the technique or that he wants kim to feel what it should feel like.
My ribs still hurt a little from two weeks ago but I started to finally turn the corner on them. This morning they even felt better than the day before so aikido isn't making them worse.
DAPI:2 (pre-existing rib pain from two weeks ago)
