Some techniques

The last couple of classes I and another relatively new student have practiced some of the basic Aikido techniques while the advanced students work on more advanced stuff. So I’ve gotten some addition practice with Shomenuchi Irminage, Shomenuchi Ikkyo (omote and uru), and Katatedori Kotegaishi.

At last night’s practice I got my first taste of Nikkyo, a wrist lock. Potentially very painful, haha! We did and exercise where we transitioned from Katatedori Nikkyo to Shihonage and finally to Iriminage. I also started learning to apply the Sankyo wrist twisting technique and pin. Cool.
