The next go-round

by on August 20, 2015

It’s been two years since I was last at an aikido tournament. I wrote a bit about my experience here.

A few weeks ago I finally got my hands on some footage of the final match. It wasn’t particularly enjoyable to watch. A number of flaws in my game glared out at me, and I got less of the swelling feeling of redemption and more that I got my ass handed to me.

(On the other hand, I see a few things I should have gotten from the refs…)

Now I’m packing up my bags for the next go-round in Australia. (Stopping briefly in Toronto on the to soften up with Henry – I may not get to practice kata or randori much, but I’ve usually got good training variety!)

Anyways, if you’re on your way to the Gold Coast tournament I’ll let you scout away. Hopefully I will have already fixed a few of the biggest flaws in my game…
