Weapons class. Worked on the paired practice for the 31 cout Kata from 13-27. It was fun, although there were parts of the area from 20-27 that I didn't do as well at as I would like. So much of this is confidence and you body teaching your mind, instead of your mind teaching your body. Seems strange to write that and read if from my keyboard still. Michael form Belgium would surely smile knowing that ultimately I came over to his viewpoint that the body and the mind have to be together to work effectively and for the fastest learning.
The thing with weapons class is that I work on weapons less that 1/5 of the time that I work on TaiJitsu. This means that my weapons work seems to be crawling along, and that I am still a very beginner in it. I have to start working on it outside of class more. I have to put some time aside and work on at least the Katas and the Suburi when I am not at weapons class.
