Sore as hell today. 1.5 hours of suwari waza and hamni handachi. We have 3 students testing for advanced levels this year, shodan, ikkyu, and sankyu... Knees are not happy..... Me and one of the other senior students were working with lots of resistance.....my left shoulder is missing skin and has a bruise the size of a baseball from ushiro ryokatedori hamnii handachi. Another one and I were working on morotedori kokyuho and I was giving him substantial resistance, to the point where he couldn't make it work....so, bam, he simply went with my resistance and threw me in kotegaeshi before I could stop him. The other student and I also worked on ryokatatedori tenshinage, he applied a LOT of resistance, I was able to make the technique work, but I'm sure it did not look pretty, and nothing like the flowing aikido you see in demonstrations. The point is Aikido works against resistance, however, Aikido never resists, so, if someone is resisting one technique, you simple blend with their resistance and apply another technique......As my Sensei says when I give him lots of resistance...."Always another way"..... OHHH, and BJJ practice was a fun warm up too.
