In General more keiko, more keiko, more... Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Now training two days per week, two classes each time, and sometimes freestyle training afterward. Still not nearly relaxed enough, but it is improving. I did pretty well staying relaxed for sotai dosa and ukemi Tuesday night, but not even close as shite. The knee is not swelling at all, though sometimes it is painfull during and afterward. When I first started, couldn't really do a sliding breakfall #2 on that side, now its not so much of a problem.

We're working nikajo this month, so the wrists are getting a good workout. I'm still blocking the best part of the energy at my shoulders. Its getting a little better, but I haven't quite gotten to the next stage yet. Gotta try to make more classes to get the mat time in to fix that. My kamae is relatively weak and my posture isn't straight enough while cutting. I'll try to work on that while doing suburi.

Last saturday I trained without the brace to see how it felt. It was like being freed! I'd forgotten what its like to move unrestricted. There was too much pain afterward, so its not quite ready yet...but in another month I'll try without the brace again to see how it goes.

Everyone is being very helpfull.

Ron, Thanks for the kind words in my journal. The PT for my shoulder is going great, and the toe will be fine. I'm glad to read that you're back on your feet and on the mat. I look forward to training with you again. Regards, -Drew
