Yay, Went to a Class
Thought I'd try out my toe Monday night at North Shore Aikikai. I taped the toe to it's buddy. Rob suggested I wrap the whole thing up. Probably a good idea. So her helped me tape it up and gave me some tips on wrapping.
Before class they asked me how I was doing so I tried a few rolls. You come up with live toes. It didn't feel bad. It felt pretty normal today so I'd say I'm probably good to go. I did notice that I was altering my ukemi some to protect the toe more.
Rob taught. We did a few things. One of the things I really liked to play with was a simple, cross hand wrist grab. You move to uke's open side as you simply put your hand down on the mat. Uke feels an off balance forward and then down. I was starting to get it by the end. The trick is to not use any muscle. If you are pulling uke you aren't doing it like it was shown.
