Morning Class Today

Made it to the early show this AM. Qi gong-like breathing exercises.

Pretty much got the jo 13 kata memorized now, though it leaves much to be desired.

My son and daughter are going to visit the dojo tomorrow for the first time--open house this week! Should be exciting.

I'm hurtin now, too much activity for this cubicle dweller today, between aikido, soccer coaching, and pre-dinner capture the flag. I'll sleep well.

Jo 13 kata

Learning the 13 step kata w/jo.

Here is a useful link with video clips.

For our recently started jo (short staff) class, A. recommended that we practice for 5-10 minutes a day with the jo. I've missed a couple days since last week's class, but at least I made a point of practicing in a parking lot for a few minutes before work after I had to unexpectedly drive my daughter to school--missed bus again!

Tuesday is my regular class night now, and it seems I am also gravitating toward the Friday morning 7AM class.

This week is open house for friends week. Free classes for visitors!
