In belated commemoration of The Ides of March, we did a fair amount of Tanto Randori tonight. Heehee --- just kidding (about The Ides of March part, that is). We did indeed do a few rounds of Tanto Randori each while Sensei videotaped us. Gak! I'm starting to think that the camera may very well be a kind of Brutus to me...friend or foe, or a bit of both?

Well, the idea is that we'll be passing around a copy to view and take a closer look at what we've been doing. Naturally, this is in the hopes of catching things from a different perspective. There are undoubtedly a great many interesting aspects which you miss while you're nage and you're in the thick of it and you've got three guys on you at once and you're backed into a corner and suddenly the duct tape boundaries Sensei has lain down on the mats to limit your movement make you feel like you're in a really stuffy closet and the knives just keep coming and coming and suddenly, they're everywhere...*Breathe*!

So, yeah. Gee. Can't wait to see how bad things look. And to remind myself of it by rewinding the tape and playing it back to myself again, and again. :-P I'll just keep telling myself that it's that painful process of shedding one's ego in order to make progress. Yeah --- that sounds good. So good in fact, that I'm almost convinced.
