In General !st kyu... 1st class Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #73 New 11-29-2005 10:54 AM
Well, times... they are a changin'.

Had my first class at 1st kyu last night. Got my belt and got a good dose of correction on things from my last test. Katatedori, Iriminage is one thing on the test I did NOT do well on, and we worked on it a good bit last night. Got my toe stepped on and it's nice and bruised at the moment... but otherwise, I'll live.

I woke up with a migraine this morning, so I'm gonna keep this entry brief.

Mat's are coming! Wednesday night, the new mat should be here and we'll be skipping class in order to bring it in and lay it out along with the new tarp cover. This is going to be nice!

Also, over the last weekend, Sensei Riggs put in over 20 hours of work on the last bit of repairs... still more to do, but it's looking nearly completed in the dojo. The new shomen was built and is looking sharp! Soon, wood trim work will go up along the top edge of the walls to match the shomen and give some contrast. Hopefully one day, we'll be able to put down some sort of wood flooring along the outside of the mat space to walk on... and then call the place finished!

2 hours down... 138 more to go.
