SECOND UPDATE TO THE AIKI JO NOTEBOOK.

There are two points here.  The first is to formalize the actions that happen in the Awase and Kumi techniques as solo practice.  The second is to increase familiararity with the different ways the jo can be handled. These are organized in accordance the 5 basic Aiki Jo Kamae.  Since these are not actually practiced this way formally, there is no need to commit these to memory, however, these techniques, once understood, will reveal the basic variations of the Kumi techniques.  I have notably omitted things that are already given in the Kihon techniques.
