I did my first practice since spring yesterday and it went great. I started out with a feeling that I'd forgotten everything and it was a great feeling to find out that I really remembererd alot. It was even better to find out that my "muscles" rememberd more than my brain did and moved correctly on their own accord a few times. I the bukiwaza class we did the entire Jo 31-kata, my first time doing the entire kata. It worked great except for moves 9 and 10, where I constantly ended up with the wrong fot forward going into 11.
In the regular class we did different techniques with a yokomen uchi attack. It was my first time doing most of them from that attack but I picked them up real quick and even got a flow of sorts going in some.
The sankyo grip almost worked as well. I have had alot of trouble with it, misaligning my hands so the grip looses it's effectiveness.
