Well, I'm catching the cold that my brother has. Wasn't too bad tonight, but I had a headache, so I skipped tenchi nage.

Well, first off...something FINALLY clicked with my rolls... Not sure what it was...either holding my arm higher over my head...curling up tighter...or pushing off harder. Whatever it was, it works!

Normally I'm sick of rolls after only twice around the mats...but tonight while they were doing tenchi nage, sensei said I could work on rolls (at my request), so I did rolls almost non stop for twenty minutes (had to stop to let my inner ear settle down a few times). Anyway, I was pumped about that, so I did it until I couldn't stand up upon finishing the roll from the dizzieness.

Weapons class was tonight, after our "normal" class... We did ikkyo, nikyo, and sankyo with the jo and then some kind of freestyle bokken time for about ten minutes (continued after class). Jo is cool, but bokken is just...I dunno...it's just plain cool. The stance(s), the movements...the grace (no, not mine...sensei's heh ). I think I, too, am in love with the sword.

Well, sore from all my rolling...even with my slight improvements, I still managed to hurl myself against the floor too hard a few times. Meh...no pain, no gain...practice makes better.

Anyway...we also did ryotedori gote gaeshi tonight...one of my favorites. Worked with Josh...he likes bending elbows the wrong way. Ouch. Punk. Heh. Well, I gave what I got.

So, until Tuesday...now that I got a bokken and jo and my sis has a bokken, I can practice that stuff at home without needing mats to keep me from killing myself.


[edit]I had "two handed grab one hand grab"...heh...was sleepy, I guess. Fixed now.[/edit]
