No Bokken tonight (*sniffle*), just Tae Sebaki. Which is fine, as I need all the help I can get It was mostly opening moves to begin to counter Yokomenuchi this time (which eventually leads into Shihonage, etc.)

Getting back to basics really forces me to take stock of how effective my technique can or can't be. I suppose in this way I kind of do like working on fundamentals...even though it's frustrating at times, especially being a petite woman having to contstantly adapt my technique in ways that the other guys don't have to worry about. But I like to think that in the end, the extra challenge will make me even more skilled and quick to adapt to attackers. I like being kept on my toes like this. After all, the last thing I want to be is complacent.

And yes, I made darn sure to have some really good meals before training today.
