Today's class was fun. After missing yesterday's class that was nice to be there again. We started with Kokyu Doza and sensei again pointed out that my hands do not face each other when I rise them. I have to be able to clap at that point. I'm trying.
Then we did 31 Jo kata from the beginning until the end! It's the fist time I do it knowing what I'm doing (The real first time when I was just repeating after everybody was during seminar at Reno). I like working with jo, it feels natural.
Then we ded yonkyo from kneeling position. Not much here, I'm still uncertain of how to do that.
Then we did Shomenuchi Shihonage Omote. That was fun especially because one of my partners was Lucy. She is very detail oriented and I like that. After that we did then the same beginning, but instead of Shihonage we finish with Kotegaeshi.
That was it! I'm still uncertain why it was so fun... Maybe bacause I missed yesterday training and today's training brought me the satisfaction? You know, when you have something, you do not even notice it, when you lose it and then get it back, you start appresiating it. Yes, I guess that's it.
