My internet decided to be retarted last night...again...

Anyway, another good sized class last night.

We did three new techniques and kokyho with and without a slight turn...(redirection, more accurately).

I got really worn out last night. We ran twenty five minutes late, so I'm sure that had something to do with it. Also, though I can't read the clock without my glasses on, I think we did (temple strike) irimi nage for about 30 minutes...and switching from uke to nage every two times keeps you on your toes...and back.

I found out why we practice on mats...heh. I was doing irimi nage with Chuck and twice (yes, twice) he dropped me close to the edge of the mat and when I slapped on my backwards fall, my fingers slapped the hard floor. Ouch! Probably the two-inch height difference had something to do with the pain...as in, if the hard floor were level with the mat I doubt it would have hurt as much. But still...we had to take a break while I massaged the acidic ache out of my hand.

The one I liked best that we did last night was from katate dori you step to the side 45* and overextend yourself to push them over and use your other hand (if you need/want to) to sweep their foot out from under them. I liked the omote version better...it was fun with the tenkan, because I found it pretty easy to make it flow as one movement.

Saturday classes may start next week. My family is going to Tennessee this week to visit my grandma in the hospital, but I've got to stay home and work. Anyway, that means they'll miss Tuesday's class. But I won't, so until then...
