Tonights class went well. It started off with just myself and another student, but eventually a third student joined class. We worked on a few different things, but mainly we did ikkyo. We also worked on sumiotoshi, kaitenage and kotegaishi. I'm not sure why, but I am already VERY sore from class. My shoulders are quite sore, which is a little odd. I also got mat burn on the top of my left foot. FUN! Who doesn't like getting mat burn and then enjoying the sting when sweat gets in it. :O) Anywho, that is all I really have to report.
Some things I have to work on: balanced attacks, not allowing my legs to collapse once I am thrown and a few other little things.
