Nice class Thursday night, focusing on basic movements pretty much. At
the end, a treat for me, doing kokyudosa with Sensei. It's sometimes a
bit of a dilemna working with him. I am sometimes not sure how much I
should challenge him with my attacks, as if moving all 150 lbs. of me is
a challenge. The goal, as I imagine it, is to provide appropriate
resistance. When working with a beginner, obviously the appropriate
resistance is very little, but when working with Sensei or sempai, the
equation is reversed. What is the appropriate level of resistance
then? My answer for today: do what I can to resist without becoming
uncentered, without being a spaz.
