Well, no class Tuesday night because... the new MAT ARRIVED! HUZZAH! "It'sa very niiiiice! "(as Lan would say )

Wednesday: Lan's Class! Started off with a bit of jiyuwaza. I sucked. Me, Lan, Brandon and Robert all worked on different things. I gotta hand it to Robert: he's picking things up FAST! He had trouble with the forward rolls. Lan worked with him about five minutes, he figured out the problem, slight modification and Whala! Perfect rolls every time!

Very good job, Robert! You're on a "roll!" *sigh* (bad joke, had to say it)

Worked on Tenchi nage last night. That was good, haven't done that one in a while. Then we did more jiyuwaza... it was much better. THEN... just to keep things interesting, we worked on Hijinage (sp?). It's that cross arm thingy. Keeping everything right in front of you is key. I need to open my hip up more on this one. Overall it was okay, but could stand to be better.

Fun class! We're still waiting on the new tarp, but it should be here today ... or very soon anyhow.

2 more hours! At this rate... it's gonna take me a YEAR to get the hours I need to test for shodan.

... oh. wait! It's supposed to take a year!
