ok ... its official .... I may as well move in the dojo ...
I was there in the morning .... then back for the midgits ... then stayed on for adult classes!
I cnt walk this morning ... or sit .... or stand ... infact breathing is a bit of a trial too!
although saying that ... i have to confess I managed to wriggle out of ukemi last night .... (bad shoulder u see!)
so in the mroning a run though of my grading ... and it wasnt horrific ...
then juniors .... which is always horrific! (im hoping that my daughter may actually manage 1 session on the mat! .... shes forever being sent off! .... any ideas?)
then the adult session
.. Im grateful for not being the only female up there last night ....
Lucy is possible the most flexible person ever ...
and it contains many shades of wrongness! .... im sorry .... should your arm bend that far??? ... NOOOOOOO its nasty and wrong ...
so lucy is a white belt .... and last night (bearing in mind that we've onli just mastered the rolling breakfall) ... lucy was flipped!
it was beeeeeeeaaaaaautiful!
and she makes more noise than me when doing it!
i feel better about this ! .... i think its a female thing .... if not ... then its definatly a dorset thing ....
I ran through my grading with Kylie (thats a fella!)
he makes me look sooooooo good! (and im gunna need it!)
im first up .. which is looooovely ... (that was sarcasm btw!)
and I'll forget everything!
.... so ... no accidents ... lots of lovely breakfalls ... and some brialliant bokken and jo work ...
ok ... all i gotta remember is to keep swimming huh???
take ye care ... and watch this space!
*wanders off singing ... just keep spinning .....*
