Nasty weather! Cold, rainy, windy...
When I came and finished putting on my dress (as sensei called my hakama today) guys finished kokyu ho. As soon as I stepped on the mats sensei asked to get our weapons. We worked in 31 jo kata from 1 to 12. I did not realize that 10 is attack to the wrist. I always thought it's a block...
THe resto f the class was Sankyo from different attacks - first shomenuchi. We did omote and ura. I almost forgot the footwork Then we changed attack to ushiro riote dori and finally shomen attack when nage slide, delivers atemi, grabs attacker's other wrist (not the attacking one), pivots and holds in sankyo. Here I have to remember as in shihonage not to hold uke's hand too high over my head.
Well, that's it for today.
