I am trying to get more practice in duringthe week. Currently I practice twice a week but tonight I was able to make a third class.
Tonight Sensei was teaching some sankyo moves. The only thing I have to say about that after two hours of techniques is ...OUCH
I was nage for a gentleman tha wanted me towork for the move then uke for him as he wanted me to see what it felt like. (Sigh) I usually dont mind but tonight was such a rushed night for me. Between work and practice I went to a retirement party for a friend and got to the dojo with minutes to spare to change from party clothes to gi. Hence I didn't warm up properly like I normally do. I am usually there about 20-30 minutes early to get myself switched from work mode to learning mode and relaxed.
Thats the last time I try to do that!
Good news though, Sensei has applied for a new job and if he gets it he will be able to have weekend classes as well! Yeah!
Outside of the dojo though I am just thrilled because tomorrow I get to go buy a new flute... my other passion in life!!
