More Basics and Three Pretests

We had a full mat, tonight, with two new people and several returning people show up, tonight. We started with some paired stretching (like two-person yoga, almost) then went through the aikitaiso. We worked with blending tonight by doing the katatetori without grabbing - only resting our palms together softly with weight underside. It brings your attention to being too quick (forcing, not blending) or needing to be in control (grabbing) and not being relaxed. Using this non-dori dori, we went through ikkyo, kokyunage, iriminage, even shihonage.

At the end we had three pretests: L.U. and Z. for gokyu and D. for rokkyu.
