In General "I think my knees are bleeding"....... Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Hey me again,

Well as i have forgotten to add in my piece from Wednesday this will also be a two lesson piece.

I will begin with Wednesday lesson.
Wednesday began with the usual knuckles warm up. Lots of good stretching and hard leg work followed be rolls and falls and turning techniques. Then the sensei cam on (Yoda as me and my friend have named him) and asked the class what they would like to practice?
Then from the ranks cam a call of suwarewaza!! Shock and horror! So we started with ikkyo on our knees. Much to my friends (René) surprise also. We finished that and followed on to ikkyo with a turn and then on to shihonage and then one where we stopped a knife attack and used a gokyo thing. then strikes to the head. Half way through my friend asked if my knees where bleeding yet. Also towards the end almost every one was complaining about there sore knees and aching toes. Even knuckles was standing at the end of the lesson.

What a great lesson had by all and even though my toes are still hurting and I have weird blood blisters on my knees I had a real good lesson.
I learned that being on your knees is very hard and you actually use much less movement. Your movement is not so much and you use more hand movement. I found that lesson one of the best yet the hardest!

Saturday Lesson.
I was alone at this lesson as René was surfing and was going to the Sunday lesson.
Saturday was the usual super stretching lesson held by ObiWan! The usual super ache inside your thighs as you feel it all pulling and aching. The the usual rolls and falls.
We then did the usual entering and turning that Obiwan does and as Saturday lesson's are very small you usually have a kind of "Private lesson". To my horror i saw Kick boxer dude arrived and I knew i was to get hurt as this guy although he is good is a little too hard on everyone. The guy does not know what control is nor does he understand that i am only a beginner, but what can you expect!!
He came in and i tried my hardest to avoid him but I ended up getting to train with him. But i did do my technique very hard on him and ended up cutting his face and he had to go off the mat. We then did cotageish, yet this was the super nasty way and i wanted to do this with Kick boxer dude yet he slipped through my grasp and did this with the sensei.
This was a good lesson yet I have bruised my elbow and it is a little painful yet i of course will be there for Wednesday lesson.

I have noticed that my movement needs more practice. I cannot move properly. I need to look into this and well as keeping my hands to my front.

Till next week
