No pain from yesterday's practice! Yay! We had the instructor and several of his students visit from the dojo in Prescott, AZ today. I got to practice with one of them and she had really good form. We did a lot of the basics, and it was a really good work out. We did a modified kokyu doza which was different, some kind of way I managed to pull a muscle in my off arm while doing it - that is, the arm which isn't doing the pinning motion. Weird. But it wasn't any big deal. I'm just really glad that I didn't do anything that still hurts today. It's nice not to be all sore after a work-out.
I've noticed that I don't suffer from all the wrist pains that lots of people get when we practice nikkyo stuff. I think I just have really limber or loose wrists. Gotta get lucky somewhere, I guess.
