An enjoyable weapons class

April 2, 2015

On Monday we did a full class based on Aikido weapons work, starting with Jo dori, and moving onto the Jo vs Bokken 1-4, I really enjoyed it – the Jo vs Bokken thing was awkward at first, at White Rose Aikido we would stay with the Iwama system and do Jo / Jo or Bokken / Bokken  – so with Jo / Bokken you really get a sense of range and also that the one with Bokken needs to make that space up quickly.

The gale force winds on Tuesday brought down the fence (and part of the wall) so that will be a project for the summer months no doubt.

I’m looking forward to the long weekend, and the Buddhist meeting on Sunday.
