Shomenuchi Night

T. and I got there early enough to go through one round of all six kumi tachi each. Others were working on doing the ushiro ukemi (back roll) up to a standing position without letting their knees touch the ground.

Because so many of us were already warmed up Sensei started right in on shomenuchi iriminage instead of stretching and aiki taiso. We worked on two kokyunage variants, a flying kotegaeshi, and ikkyo ura. We ended with several rounds of randori. T. did one and Sensei sent in two extra ukes!

I almost had to sit out but managed not to have to. Fun!
