Class At NSA
Went to North Shore Aikikai last night. Matt taught. Good class. We focused practice around doing a proper tenkan. So the techniques we worked on had a tenkan in them. Had a lot of fun. Towards the end of class Matt had us doing those techniques for a freestyle practice. We also practiced controlling an uke with a sankyo.
What I found was that the first techniques and the last were my best ones. Somewhere in the middle I was not doing a full tenkan. This kind of thing happens with freestyle. Even at the easy pace we kept, it was harder to focus on proper technique in that environment. So that means I need more practice.
