Lots of people came and Eric didn't show up, so I taught two classes. I'm really focused recently on the idea of getting off line and entering. In the first class we tried doing that with katate dori. In the second class we did the same thing, but from munetski. The problem that I noticed everyone had, including me, was when someone is coming very strong, it's hard not to bang into them with the approach. I think the key to this is timing. Good timing puts you in the right place (right in the hole) so that they have to respect your atame. Bad timing against a strong attack allows them to subtly shift the attack so you are really no longer off line any more.

I think I hurt Xavier's hand in class today. He was struggling with my shihonage, and I cranked it a little hard. It's very scary to hear a crack. He says he is fine, but I'm quite worried.
