(My computer was off last night and I didn't feel like turning it back on...)

Chuck brought a friend to class...bringing our total up to 8, including sensei.

Hmm...anyway, I had loads of fun with shomen uchi irimi nage last night... I did it with Chuck and somehow (not sure how) I had the footwork down after only about four trys and one question to John. Neither Chuck nor I know how to breakfall really, so I wasn't going very fast, but we did pick up some speed...that was fun.

We did katadori something with the gi...where you sidestep, scoop their wrist, and try to stick their elbow in their ear, then do a wrist pin. That one was cool, too, once sensei showed me what I was doing wrong on the footwork...you have to slide with both feet, not just one, otherwise you can't take uke off balance.

Didn't do any rolls in class, officially, but I did some after class (despite my brother's nagging to leave) for fun and practice... Still improving, but I'm still feeling a lot of preasure on my back as I roll...something I'm not sure what to think about.

Well, anyway, breakfast is ready and school awaits...until Thursday...
