Last night's class consisted of a LOT of irimi. I just suck at it. I got so frustrated with it, I just went and sat down with the full intention of just being uke for the rest of the night.
Well, I started out again on the next technique with the intention of doing only the tai sabake. This was helpful. After a bit, I was throwing, because I really had no choice... if it worked, I had to go with it.
Irimi and Koshi's are two things I need a lot or work on. Hopefully in the near future, I'll get out of the rut I'm in and back in the zone. Only time will tell.
As a side note: Karen W. keeps daily logs on her classes and thereby can track her training hours. I'm in need of doing the same, so from this point on, I plan to keep a log here on the web noting what my classes were and thereby keeping up with hours.
