Remember the original post to this current test blog? That was the last time we practiced suwariwaza. So last night Nancy asked for some coaching and we spent half an hour with a sempai.Now my left wrist is all messed up because while she had to practice getting out of her upper body my arms were getting jerked all over the place- and I'm sure I was doing the same to her, but we don't complain...I know where to get pressure tape...
And then I think of my kohai who is testing for 4th kyu. With a metal plate in one arm, and recentlymangled knee and a very newly smashed hand & fingers on his "good' arm,( professional stunt man, naturally) not only testing but getting up and taking ukemi for the 5th kyu candidates.
Watching one of said soon-to-be-5th kyus in jiyuwaza last night, and being able to see in him how I hesitate on every technique. Last night I fuzzzed my focus a bit and was much better able to enter & turn without getting stuck, and after the randori with the two yudansha present the teacher for the night declared to all " and she Can't fake this like the rest of us" and I came off the mat simling.
Got to do some practice on my variations,am slightly less panicked this morning.
Now just to stay centered from now through Saturday....
