Great training Saturday starting at Sumei, ending at Eibukan. Dwayne Bolt had his anniversary, and it was really good seeing him teach. Never was in a class of his before. He has some really subtle things going on, and I like the way he encourages his students to attack, the frame work of the class, and the way he relates things. He is also not afraid to miss a waza, and just keep working until it comes out the way he wants.
He picked up something from Gleason's seminar and reviewed that; the idea of hips going one way, hands another. VERY usefull on some waza, especially ayate mochi / kosa dori. I still need to work more on the subtle balance break for iriminage after the entry. Open the heart, send in opposite directions.
