Skinned Knees

Last Saturday I attended a suwari waza clinic. Suwari waza are techniques executed with both nage and uke in a sitting position. In this clinic the sensei included attacks from a standing position. I was glad to spend two hours in study on a technique that will play an increasing role in my future tests, but...

TWO HOURS moving and twisting on your knees! I have two knees without skin! I also discovered that seated moves, while similar to standing moves, require a new set of muscles to balance and walk. Shikko, the "samurai walk" looks much easier than it is to do. I have a brand new set of aches!
