It's really good to see Sempai Jeff and Sempai Garry back on the mats again (even off and on) --- looks like they're recovering nicely. We might even be seeing Sempai John E. out again in at least another 8 months or so. The other day, it was the first time I'd been back at the "end of the line" again --- where all my sempais were folks from back when I first started. It was a nice feeling, perhaps more than a little sentimental of me to say so, but it was like the old gang was back together again. Silly, huh?

Over the past couple of days, I did a lot of practicing of Katatedori Koshinage (sigh...), along with some Yokomenuchi Shihonage, Shomenuchi Ikkyo, and Ushiro Ryotekubidori Ikkyo. On the latter two, after I don't know how many reps, Ken and I simply had to lay off on doing the last part of the pin --- yowch, did it ever get nasty. But it was reminiscent of the times in the past when we'd spend a whole night doing the same technique from different attacks. Heh --- I feel bruised just thinking about it!
