In the end of August i went back to my old dojo, my home dojo. Sinsay Dirick Nakaguwa. I had gone knowing that it would be diffrent becaue , I knew that one of the main teachers had left and that he was now runing his own dojo. He had writen me and informed me that this was so. However, what I did not expect but soon descovered is that he had taken with him some of the people that i had expected to reamin loyoal to sisinsay and 2 of the people he "took" were ones that I thought were my freinds. It kinda hurt that for people whom had siad they were my freinds to not even tell me that they were not going to be there anymore. Espely becaus one knew I was coming back to trin I had asked him if the times were the same. However, sisay seemed glade I was back and asked about school. He wants me to test for 4th Kuy before I go back up. Althow, I think i forgoten some of the neames becaue looking at the list it once agin looks like a foren lagure. They did not in the bingners class use the names as much up north. Althow, i have to admit while i went to class, i fell into a pertty bad depertion up there so my dojo treing and lurning retention, was inpared. I suppose due to turble I was having up north with making freinds , is why it hit me hard when I felt like lost some here. Howver, I was welcomed back by sisaisay and also another aikidoist that I had grown kinda close to. That was nice and it felt good to back in an envroment that I liked. Still can frustred and challenge me , but also suporse me and ingage me. I was thrown by a man there and it was hareder then I expeced but without thinking I took a roll and sisay was inpresed kinda , he siad" good uikimie". I was plessed thhat while my contions brin was bussy going watie what s going on, my uncotion brin was going ok this is what we do. It times like that I supose that show you relly do know what you are doing. I am now perparing for my 4th kue exame, which is going to be hard. I hope I am readdy , sisay will let me know, after all he knows. I fell like I knwo some of the items on the list but I need much work , i wich I had more days i could pritice. I not sure how to go about asking but i think i would like it if with out telling me some people actouionly would thorow me hard so I , i gess buld cofindence in knowing what I do knwo i lurn form what I dont, However, I am also kinda scared becaue I not sure I do know what I doigng on alot and i dont want to hurt them, or me, but espely my partener. Sisay still wont let me help the high rancks train, even puts in people that are the same rank as me over me, so I think he thinks that I dont want to to or something , but I do , but then agin mabby he write and porahaps I am not able to good enoff ukimie. Oh , well we all lurn at diffent rates and he dose his best to try to alow everyone tok get the trining they are there for . That must be a hard job to chalange everyone eqqulay. Best of luck to all you teachers out there! I think I relly should get some weponns, any sugestion as to what kinda?
