Twirlin' My Jo
T.'s done with her play so we went to Aikido tonight. A.O. sensei lead us in warm ups then we worked on some fine points of some degage'-like parries - left and right, over and under. After that we went through jo kata number 1. Finally, we walked through jo kata number 2. I don't think I've done 2 since last summer so I'm glad I remembered as much of it as I did. We concentrated on the sweeping spin at count 16. I'm glad we did since those usually get me off-balance and practicing it by itself with A. sensei's guidance helped me figure out how to do it.
