Ikkyo, ikkyo, ikkyo, ikkyo, ikkyo, ikkyo

Ikkyo. Basic technique. Easy to get right fairly quickly but hard to get right all the time.

We started with tai sabaki to get warmed up. Then, we worked on a *lot* of ikkyo variations. My shoulder prevented me from full contact but I was able to do most of the techniques (uke and nage) as long as I didn't have to extend my right arm much higher than my shoulder. I was able to roll on my left side, though, and that was good.

T. and I felt like wet noodles afterward. Good class!
