Tenkan practice in Sunday Class

  We focused on Tenkan in Sunday general class. We started from simple swing training of swords, then turned with swords as you Tenkan. All other techniques related to Tenkan turning. Although Tenkan is basic of basic practice in Aikido, it is kind of difficult technique to get. I guess Tenkan bugs lots of Aikido practitioners in their training. Sword training might help to develop Tenkan.
   A new student just joined Sunday class. Hope he enjoyed Aikido. We also had visiting practitioners. It is fun to train with various Aikidoist.

  In youth class, we had 7 children on Sunday class. In the half of class, we had Ukemi (Rolling) drill. All children did good job in the rolling.
