I go to Aikido class every Sunday.  This term, as we need to keep social distance, we try Bokken rather than various techniques of Aikido.  I tried Bokken (and Jo) a while ago, and find it difficult, but fun.  I have difficulty keeping the sword straight.

I ordered (and got) Bokken so that I can practice at home, but so far, I have been too busy to find time to do so.  Today, we spent more than half of the class on Bokken.  We even tried AWASE for the first time.  I find it difficult but hope that I practice often enough I can do it.  Learning new things is always fun, whether it is new knowledge, or new skills, techniques.
