I'm still sick, but I'm getting better. I should be able to train tomorrow evening, but I most likely won't be at the top of my game.
For the past month or so, we have been slowly gearing up for a test. Overall, I feel pretty confident, but I'm still going over the required techniques and other requirements in my head. There's a new round of attacks for which I only sorta have the Japanese names memorized.
What I do, and what I'll do until the test when I'm not actually in class, is perform the movements without an uke -- air aikido. I visualize the attack, and practice the movements that I need to do. I also practice putting the names for the attacks and techniques to the movements.
