Morning Class
Worked on Shoman Uchi Irimi Nage, it was an amazing class in a lot of ways. Learned about blocking the shoman in the blend, and to put your arm above the Uke's elbow, keeping your arm bent so that you deflected the blow instead of guiding it to your side.

Kokyu Dosa was with Sensei, and was wonderful, he showed me that there was a way to the start of Kokyu Dosa, and that there was an imaginary plane between us, I needed to make sure that I started at least even on that plane, better still if I started as far as possible on his side of the plane. Then he showed my how there was a flow to moving toward my center when we were deadlocked in the middle. Then spiraling out of the movement back toward the uke. It was wonderful. I tried it again in the evening class with Eisa and it worked wonderful there too!

Evening Class
Worked with one of the white belts, on Ikkyo. It was a lot of fun, and I feel like I have forgotten of what I had down pat for my test. Oh well. Then I worked on my test stuff and it felt like my mind and body were on vacation, and not speaking to each other.
