A great class even though I have a cold and am a little thick headed. Small class, only 4 of us and Sensei. Worked on all the stuff for my test with everyone, including Sensei. Wow he is a great UKE! It was great! Rick did try and bounce me on my head once with one of his 2nd kyu reversals. It hurt a little, but not that bad. I immediately told him that I did not know how to take Ukemi for that move. He was apologizing throughout the class.

Learned a lot, center center center! Stay in the same angle to the Uke throughout Shihon Nage, Step away from the Uke at the end of the Kote Gaieshe move, instead of sliding away! Lots and lots. Have to work hard on staying centered, and getting my toes under my feet and hips on the pins…

Sensei spoke on Tuesday about how tests are not marshal moments, and the idea is not to go into a test with an attitude of compitition, but rather a team you and your uke both working to show Sensei that you can do what is required to advance up a level. I got this on a deeper level today when I realized that Rick was my best ally in testing! It was a subtle change, but something that shook the heart of how I am practicing with him for this test.
