First let me say .... Sensei is wonderful, a marvellous and merciful man .... whom after reading this will hopefully not inflict to much agony on me tomorrow! .... I LOVE MY SENSEI!!!!!!!!!!!!
well my luvvers all that arsekissing done with ... what to say about today!!! ... I am in pain ./... but I think Im showing some improvement! ... got ikkyo down now .... and nikkyo! .... sakyo and yokyo are improving and ive got shiho nage down to ! .... (am able to break fall outta it to!) ... awww look at me .. Im showing off! .... my wrists are Very painful today and my stomach muscles to for some daft reason! ... go figure!
If I could just stop having BLUE moments halfway through the technique and flowed more .... (maybe Im thinking to much eh?)
had a little to do with sensei today .... not so much an argument .... more a disagreement .... I have a few issues with strangle holds ..... (its not cuz im a nurse or anything) .... but I find that they bring some unpleasant memories to the forefront ..... so had a little fliddy about doing them! .... poor sensei ... he was trying desperatly to show me that I need to know these techniques and theres me having a hissy about doing them! .... (im exceedingly cross with myself!) .... so Ive decided that tomorrow Im going to make a concerted effort and show him that I have been paying attention and that stuff is getting through to me! ....
the second problem Im finding is that Im slapping out rather to late! (in a bacwards breakfall) .... well ... I actually havent acheieved a proper fall in that respect .... its just that Im hitting the ground ... then slapping out to save myself! .... terrific huh? .... you gotta understand what poor sensei is up against! ,... I cringe at attacks .... put my head down and cover my head with my hands .... instead of meeting them and blending! .... ahhhhh whats a blonde to do!.... (or in my case a blue) ....
so back to the eternal problem of .... HOW DO I GET THIS DAMNED SONG OUTTA MY HEAD .... just keep swimming .....
thats all me luvvers
