Randori is an Aikido exercise that allows it's participants to create harmony amid chaos. It's fun when you keep your head about you but it is very challenging. Randori translates from Japanese as "seizing chaos". This blog serves as a diary for my Aikido experience and, now, my gym experience.

Aikido - Gan Menuchi
After warming up, we worked on katatori ikkyo leading up to katatori ganmenuchi (lapel grab then face punch) attacks. With that opening we did ikkyo, iriminage, kokyunage, and shihonage. T. came to class tonight, too.
