Well i did not add in Thursday class as we have guests from Germany staying over and now i am adding in todays class as i have a spare moment to do so.
Well Thursday class was given by "Knuckles" as i have named him as i do not know the sensei's name but i do know he cross trains in another art but what I do not know but one thing I do know is that it is a fighting style that usually leaves his knuckles open and bleeding most days thus his name knuckles. In the usual style of knuckles Sensei it is the usual warm up that could leave even the fittest sweating and a very technical lesson. We did entering from the side techniques. We had a very old and little woman who I underestimated and left me on the floor moaning from a very powerful throw, surprisingly enough also trained with some mad young guys who kind of shakily and aggressively tried his way through. Thursday lesson was very good and i learned an nice new entering way that i am sure not to forget.
Today's class (Saturday) was very small and consisted of 4 people. There was mustache guy who likes to go a little rough yet does not like it himself in return, nice old guy who always has issues with his knees and some old dude who had amazing technique. The lesson was on our knees and was very hard to do. I found myself unable to do Shihonage (Spelt wrong but you know what I mean) as i had trouble to move on my knees and do a technique at the same time.
Saturday was very good and we went right back to basics on this lesson. I learned a lot and had a great time.
Looking forward to next Wednesday.....
One point i am reading "Angry white pajamas" by robert Twigger. Nice book very witty and yeah..nice.
