Spoiled Again!

7AM class today: me, Andy, Danny, and Sensei. These AM classes are the best kept secret, a rare treasure to work with people who have given their life to the art.

The last two AM classes have been aerobically easy (difficult for the knees at times, which aren't doing too badly), as we are focusing on ki concepts. The idea behind aiki--blending, is that we find the path of least resistance, moving around uke's center. Basic hand work, then moving to tenchinage.

The other thing that happens that we don't usually acknowledge is the subtle energy of training, the mental and subconcious impressions exchanged between one another.
This has its own value.
