In General Sensei's only student Entry Tools Rate This Entry

I feel like Sensei's only student at the moment. For whatever reason there have been at least four classes recently where it's just been me and him. I feel like I'm in the Aikido fast lane now though. Who else gets one on one tuition around here?

Yesterday Sensei asked me if I was willing to put in some hard slog and go for the 1st kyu grading on the 19th. I can't resist a challenge like that so I agreed. They're going to fail me regardless of what I do, but I enjoy the odd couple of weeks of really intense practice where I'm putting in six days a week or so. I like that feeling of being ground down and just carrying on and of settling into a rhythm.

Plus a couple of personal projects I've been working on for the past seven months are, well, on hold for a while and the training is a useful distraction. You could say one set of intense training has been replaced by another.

I think I'm jealous. I've been fortunate to have a bit of one on one with Sensei Garth once when we had only 3 students in the class for the night. I really love it on those nights when there are only a couple of students in the dojo. I get so much more out of the class.
