Homework Assignments

Adult Aikido Challenge

Go into the library video page.

In the Larson Sensei section (top left) video #11 (shihonage), note the connection between hands and hips at these points: 13:40 - 15:50, 18:55-19:00, 35:06-35:55, 45:00-46:15. What key points do you notice?

Adult Tai Chi Challenge

In the library under the video page, go to the Larson 2016 video group and look at the last segment for 2018. At 1:18 Larson Sensei talks about a block. If you haven't gotten into chapter 4 yet, compare that to moving to the right after the 10 step opening of the form. Or for chapter 4, comsider it related to the first strike after the first single whip. What are the similarities in principals?
