In General 3 consecutive classes of disappointment Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #4 New 05-14-2006 01:26 AM
I don't know why, but for the last several weeks, I go to classes and feel disconnected from what's going around, I feel like i'm doing evreything wrong and that i'll never get it right.
On the other hand I did have a few insights into how to do things, but overall I go to class not expecting much and by the end of it my throat is soar from disappointment.
Last class the head of the dojo gave the lesson, and the first thing he did was sort of a circular excercise, i got to practice with a new guy and we didn't understand it. since it was a big class and the instructor was on the other side of the room, we just stood like idiots trying to see what others were doing. later the instructor did it with me, and i still didn't get it. he said "you do it ok without getting it, don't worry", but he's just a nice guy i know he didn't want me to feel bad, that's it.

i get those days too dude.. like a big run of crapness where you feel all dumb and awkward.. especially with ukemi for me. and then it seems to take ages to get better... just ask questions and stuff. (obvious i know.. sorry). its just something that happens. i think thats where the chaff falls away, and the strong determined people, who are able to accept that they make mistakes remain.
