Stupid Drill With Rob

The past couple of weeks during my Aikido class, me and Rob have been going over the "stupid drill" It's a series of movements transitioning between kote gaeshi and kote hineri, and occasionally kote mawashi. It's a repetitive but necessary drill. The better you get at it, the less you have to think about doing it, hence the name. We've also been doing the Nijusan chains to help Rob develop that ability to follow where you feel your opponent taking you instead of just trying to predict it.

I like the idea of stupid drills. Since I'm not very smart, I try to incorporate them into all my practices. That way I don't have think about them later.
