The day's session kicked off rather slowly but nevertheless it began with a brief warm up session courtesy of Joshua Kohai and we were priviledged to have among us Marianne Ostermayer Shidoin (Godan) from the Aikikai Basel dojo in Basel, Switzerland and Klaus Lehan (Yondan) from the Aikido Ikeda dojo-Zurich who joined us later on.
Ostermayer Sensei guided us through the following (all executed from Kiawase):
Ai Hanmi Katatedori Ikkyo Omote.
-Ai Hanmi Katatedori Shiho Nage Omote (different version).
-Ai Hanmi Katatedori Kote Gaeshi (different version).
Ostermayer Sensei stressed on the importance of maintaining balance and having contact with each other (Uke & Tori) especially in Kiawase.
NEXT SESSION: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 @ THE SAME VENUE
