Friday June 9th training

On Friday night we practiced hijiate kyokyunage (hitting elbow throw). Although the techniqu names translate to “hitting elbow throw”, that name is misleading. In this technique, we turn uke’s (the person receivig the techmique) arm into a lever using his elbow as the fulcrum point. While shite (the person doing the technique) moves forward lowering his hips as he rotates his inside arm which is positioned at the fulcrum point. At the same time he keeps his outside arm fixed. The movement creates a lot of pressure on uke’s elbow but because his hand is fixed in position by shite’s outter arm uke has no choice but to fall to avoid injury to his elbow.

This technique is not only technically challenging but requires that we keep many different parts of our body moving in sync. It’s great for mental focus and learning to control our bodies.

5月26日、27日(土日)の稽古 May 26th and 27th training

今週は新しく2人の初心者と3人の子供クラスの生徒を迎え、とても賑やかな週でした。

It was a busy weekend at the dojo! We held our second Free Beginners Event and had three new students in the kids class.

道場が成長し続けるにつれて、現在の生徒も自身の気づきを新しい生徒に教えられ、その過程で合気道の楽しさをさらに味わえると信じています。

もし東京近郊に住んでいらっしゃれば、体験だけでもいいのでぜひ合気道を体験しにいらしてくださいね!

As the dojo continues to grow our current students are given the opportunity to pass on what they know to new students and we get to further spread the joy that is Aikido. If you live in the Tokyo area or even if you’re just visiting, please drop by one our classes and give Aikido a try!
