Scary Training Night

Updated on July 16, 2011

New Throw

You know everytime I go to class I know I could expect pain and soreness. That is ok, its too be expected. I am training and if you don't feel these things you are training for sport not for real. I should not of been surprised about what happened last night. We started out doing Ukemi which I was hoping we would do anyway, it gets me warmed up and takes the stress right out of me. We worked on Kamae and stances in a drill sort of way and then we went into Hanka.

I was chosen as Uke'. so we go through the ones we have been working on and that was fine, I've by now gotten used to the throws and how to roll out of them. I like applying them better then getting applied too.. lol

Then he added a particular throw that we haven't done before and I never done. It is sort of like a Judo throw , straight up over your shoulders.. only you don't create a space when you turn to get under the hips, you feet are together and it makes the throw higher impact.. holy crap I was scared! Sensei saw the fear in my eyes and all that was going through my head, is am I going to land correctly, Breath out, land with the flats of your feet touching the floor. don't hold on , relax. Sensei asked if I was afraid because I must of gone pale white.He could feel the fear emminating out of me. He told me to relax and take it easy , to remember to land flat on my feet and to breath out. After he did it to me, I thought I landed on my feet the way I was supposed to but I felt a sharp pain up my Tibula.. after he threw everyone and then we all took turns in the center of the mat throwing everyone. I did pretty well. It's pretty interesting feeling different bodies and how you have to put your hips under theirs in order to get the right position to throw. Sensei said I did very well and I could feel the difference with a variety of people to work with.

The highlight of the evening for me was when we worked bokken. I always love working bokken. We worked with partner and practiced blocking and cutting. It was a very tiring session and when I got home I don't remember hitting the pillow but I passed out almost right away. I was exhausted. That never happens to me. Each night of practice is different, each night I learn something new or I know I did a practiced technique better. Training is getting more advanced I think and that scares me just a little, I guess when something new comes up its normal.. Any advice anyone?

      truparadox, it is not aikido, it is ninjitsu but the throw's we were working on that night were similiar to aikido, on difference instead of having wide stance when you threw opponent, you would stand with your feet close together so the throw was higher and the impact was more!!! scary!!

      Sounds like Aikido? If so, relaxing would be my best advice. Months from now, you'll be amazed how far you've gone.
