Still not 100% but improving

T. and I went to Aikido this evening. We warmed up, went through our aiki taiso and rolls. (No rolling for me yet because of my shoulder.) We worked on tenkan and irimi movements then an ushiro version. Since we're helping one of our fellow students prep for a shodan test we worked on hanmi-handachi waza where the standing uke attacks the kneeling nage. We finished with a one-handed kokyu-dosa variation.

I could do a lot more than I thought I would be able to do. Lifting my right hand higher than my shoulder is still pretty dodgy but definitely improving.
