Sensei was away so Noel taught the class. Worked on Ushiro Ryote Dori with a press down on the elbow with Victor, the Usjiro Ryote Dori with an arm around Nages neck with Noel, don't know what that was called, but it sure was interesting. Also worked with Victor on making things flow easily and not be pushed. This is still a lot of work for me, and I don't get it often. Victor and I also worked on Ushiro Ryote Dori Shiho Nage which I actually felt worked without pushing on him once! Wahhoooo!!!
Noel taught me some about KoKyu Dosa and moving from center in the technique. Heck you are supposed to get your hips involved there too! I don't think that I ever have until now.
M was on the mat again. She had a good time, but got a little frustrated at the end of the class when things seem to have been harder to follow for her.
