So it was only Sensei, Victor, Julia, Peter, Linda and I tonight. It was great, I worked for 20 minutes with Julia then 20 minutes with Victor, then 20 minutes with Sensei!!! The last 20 minutes we did Morote Dori Koku Ho a lot, and at the end of each one Sensei would pull me over. It was all that I did not have a good base. It was great working on it. Also I noticed that when he threw me, there was no way that I could hold on to his arm, but when I threw him it was easy for him to hold onto mine. I got my base a little better. It was great.
Victor and I worked on something that was a lot like mune tsuki kote gaeshi. Victor continues to amaze me with his muscle development, and his flow.
Sensei is amazing with flow, control, and movement of energy. The smoothness is so very strange to me.
Julia is wonderful to work with too. I learn tons from working with her, feeling where it is that I am forcing things and where things are actually smooth. Her smile and her attitude make it wonderful.
At the end of class when we thank our training partners, more and more it is from the heart that I thank them for being there, for training with me, and having patience with me, especially the sempies, who have to be uke for me doing the same thing with the same mistakes over and over and over again.
