Haven't been writing anything since it was mostly usual trainings. A lot of sankyo. Today finally I've got the foot work.
Also we did jo kata up to 12. I asked sensei about footwork, but he asked not to concentrate on that right now and promised to cover that when we do partner practice with jo.
Tomorrow I'm going to ask sensei to teach backfalls and backrolls during ukemi class. It seems to be problem not only for me.
On Wednesday class was taught by Mike and we did mostly sankyo and the same from suwari waza. Thursday was brown/black belt, so I was doing my usual rolls and boken cuts on a side. I also added stepping to a side from the line and concentrating on the direction of my body. Sensei obviously likes and supports the idea of practicing every day.
Today was jo kata and sankyo. I found to not being able to concentrate properly today for some reason and I think sensei noticed that. Can't explain the reason of this. Maybe I'm just a little tired. Will rest on Sunday and for now I should preserve some energy for Saturday class with Witt sensei.
