Yay! No injuries today either! I had to miss Tuesday and Thursday night's practice because I had a cold and didn't want anyone else to share it. I'm so selfish sometimes!

Practice went great today. We learned some very different movements from what I've learned so far. They are difficult for me to explain, because I don't know the terminology. They all involved two hand wrist grabs, and the weirdest one was one that just had an ura component and then you did something to spin nage around and then put him down with a kotegaeshi, which was fun, but me and a 4th kyu just stood there until sensei could come show us what we were supposed to do. It wasn't intuitive at all, but once we learned it it was pretty cool.

This was my first practice where I partnered with my wife. We took turns doing a technique where we pinned each other with an ikkyo pin. Earlier I had almost thrown Lindsay off the mat, so then when she pinned me the first time, sensei told her to break my wrist. "It's only fair he said." Ha!

I'm also happy today because I found me a Mr. Sparkle t-shirt at the comic store yesterday. I love Simpsons shirts that have Japanese written on them. I have another shirt that has Homer dressed as a samurai and it says Baka Gaijin. Ha!
