A bit distracted, but worked with a variety of people, including Pat who is also going for his 5th Kyu test. It was interesting. It is so much easier to work with the Sempies, they almost do the work of the Nage for you when they are your uke. The issue is of course that if it is to be an effective physical self defense practice, then we must have it be effective against people that are like the beginers, stiff, harder to lead in the technique, and requiring more precise timeing.
