In General 11th Practice Entry Tools Rate This Entry

After 11 practices, I may finally be learning the names of some of the techniques. In today's class, Sensei seperated out the beginners from the rest of the class and drilled us in some basics. I'm really glad that we got this special attention. I think I learned a few things.

We drilled Shomen Uchi Ikkyo, Nikkyo and Sankyo and the various pins each entailed. This was pretty cool, especially since Sensei made sure we did them all correctly (or at least as correctly as newbies can do).

One of the other newbies is a Japanese girl. When she was first paired with me, she was very apologetic about any possibility of causing me any pain. This both amused me and annoyed me a little. After a few times, I told her not to worry about causing me any pain - that's kind of the point of the pins. I told her that if she really hurt me I'd scream very loudly. To her credit, she quit apologizing and did the techniques very well. I did learn that nage doesn't have to be particularly strong to make uke hit the mat. That was cool.

Another great class.
