No Class Last Night

What a bummer. Considering I can't go on Thursday night either. My wife is taking off for a family event so I have to stay home with the kids. Babysitter isn't around that night either so no aikido for me.

I noticed my stress level was higher than normal last night.

One name for you... Shodokan. Hate to push it on you, but you're paying for classes that aren't happening.
Keep practicing though!

Well two things come to mind.

As I've stated before, I'd love to go to Shodokan but can't because the times aren't ones I can easily make. I also happen to like my sensei's teaching. Before I move on I think it would be a great experience for me to continue learning from him.

The other thing that pops into my mind is I'm not paying for classes. I'm paying to support the dojo.

Thanks again.

Different anonymous, here. Any classes that you can make at Shodokan will be beneficial to your practice, as you will have a more varied range of partners to work with and will be exposed to different teachers.
We also have a strong emphasis on ukemi at Shodokan, which you can't get enough of, believe me! The better your ukemi gets, the better your aikido will be. It sounds like you will also be testing soon at Shodokan, so getting a feel for the mat here is a good thing.

I've actually been to Shodokan for a couple of Saturdays but got sidetracked with personal committments, holiday class cancellations, and sore ribs that took about 3 weeks to heal up.

I'm aware of Shodokan's emphasis on ukemi and I can definitely benefit from it. I agree with you.... and hope to start coming back soon.

I was actually lucky enough to catch a class with Sensei Mulligan a while back.

Anyone have any idea what time the Saturday classes meet nowadays?

Saturdays are 10am.
Sundays are 8:15am.

Hello. I am an ex-quasi-student who has learned to appreciate it when classes are cancelled. In fact I love it. It takes the responsibilty off of me ("Hey, I showed up!") and I don't have to practice. Since I showed up, I can count that as practice hours, there is no bruising or joint pain involved, and I am free for the evening to practice my beer induced ukemi. Its brilliant. I wish classes were cancelled more often at my dojo, but someone always seems to show up and ruin everythhing.
