My bokken floats

through my finger tips,

Stopping only when the turns stops,

Directed lightly by my hips and hands and energy.

What happens to my uke when handled the same way?

Two hot days in July

…two very fun, sweaty classes.

Small classes but lots of Aikido experience on the mat …the same 5 people both days. Mary, Ron, Charlie, Dora and Ann…we saw from behind our eyes, with our eyes closed, we stayed on the mat and then stepped off and gave up our turn…then we attacked and defended with tanto’s…it got really unorthodox and we forgot we were hot.

Such fun, on the mat, during the hottest days of the year.
