well I turned up to class and was surprised by who many people turned up for Bojutsu practice!
I entered the dojo and saw about 6 people sitting with cameras and photo cameras all filming what was going on with the Sai against Bo.
I looked over and saw skinny guy and asked and he had no clue what was going on so I got changed and waited for class.
We got the mats out and I over heard that it was MTV filming out dojo and it will be made into a cartoon or anime thing, sounds cool.
So lesson was once again super evil as this lesson was only falling and rolling, falling and rolling and doing over and over the four sets of movement!
I figured out (Thanks Gerald) that I am doing the first movement wrong as I step first and don't do it correct. I need to only open then step thought. Super nice of Gerald to tell me this as I knew I was doing something wrong.
I also need to relax a little more in Jiu Waza as I know I can do more techniques just I could not this time and I know it was because MTV was filming, spoilt my lesson!
Then at the end i had to do Jiu waza with stiff new guy and also had to take it easy with him as I am too hard.He was super stiff and never moved real good for me so I could only throw hard as I needed to break his balance!
Then when Paddy did Jiu waza with skinny guy he fainted as Paddy was a little rough on him. His eyes rolled and then his colour went and that was it he could no longer go on and fell to his knees. I once again had to take over from him with Paddy who could no longer do much as his head was a little rocked because of this.
