That was gooood! The whole class jo kata with partner! I like jo!
We started with Taino Hanko and then sensei asked to get our jos. He and Andy demonstrated partner practice and we did it from 1 to 12. I liked it, one time I felt how inportant the distance is. And sensei was right, I figured out foot work with no problem while doing partner practice. It's almost impossible to remember it when doing solo practice, but with a partner it's coming natural. I have to remember the blocking moves, in the second part of the 2 when I'm a defender, left hand should be higher tahn right hand, when I'm an attacker, 5 and 6 are strikes, not 5th suburi and sensei has shown 2 ways of moving into striking position - one is just move jo up and catch with left hand and strike, teh second is to slide left hand towards right hand and the continue sliding until it reaches the end of the jo. When doing 10 in defender's role, feet are together. That's it for now.
