Having taken up Kung Fu specifically to get the oportunity to learn attacking and timing skills, R now starts on Utemi. I must be psychic.
Apparantly NO-ONE other than M will be grading! Put down that banner and step _away_ from the politics Frac. Doesn't bother me in the slightest but it might upset others I'm told. I would have refused even if I'd been asked, I KNOW I'm not that good yet!! I will be but not yet
Great session last night despite getting a swipe to the nose that had my eyes watering... Partnering S was fun (it wasn't him that swiped me, just thought I'd point that out!), he's been off for a long time after putting his back out but now he's back and on form. Ah, where would I be without my Aikido men?! Any boyfriend I have (ah ha ha ha ha ah ahahahaha *cough* like when hell freezes over) will have to be very secure because I won't be giving these guys up any time soon!
At one point I did a great, slightly adapted, version of Irimi nage and Sensei asked if I thought it was good. I said no... I didn't really mean no I just felt like I had no centre, like it was purely timing. Oh Dear. I mean it was pretty good, I'm just preprogrammed (from where I don't know) to think that saying I'm good means =no further effort required= and I always have to watch that tendancy like a HAWK. I can always be better but my lazy arse gene has to be supressed.
I am getting there though thanks to Martial Arts and various other things...
We need an entry emoticon for KNACKERED. *clunk* zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
