Today's class was mostly kotegaeshi. I almost forgot this technique, so it was good to be reminded. Have to keep in mind the foor work. Move 90 degrees, then 180, matching partner's fingers, then roll partner and pin him. This rolling works, but there are nuances I don't get yet. Have to practice that some more.
My partner was Wane. Finally Andie was there today and I really wanted to work with him, but I wasn't so lucky Well, maybe next time. I have to ask him to teach me his back rolls. They are gorgeous!
