Aiki Ashi Waza


  1. beautiful beautiful -- much improved -- the softer work is working! -- show you a corner you bring back a square! -- still need to let the knee flex a little more (work sweep from bottom up -- little muscle groups to big--the toes to the ankle to the knee to the hip to the center dropping behind it all-- this is a little tough since when we bend our knee we tend to engage the hip and lift-- what we actually want is to bend and drop) -- keep the hands passive or disengaged while getting the timing (no extra noise in the system) -- also good to work on the timing of the support foot touching the ground following uke's outer step - all in all very good stuff-- proud of you
