Quite a session I did.

First of all, I was really early for every class.

On tuesdays, I trained for 1 hour with Jean-Charles, a friend of mine who is 4th Kyu. We focussed on my exam. 4th Kyu. At the end of the session, we looked at his, the 3rd Kyu wich will probably take place in 2007.

On Thursdays, I arrived also 1 hour early. But Thursdays are for parents - kids class. So, I went on the mat as an teacher helper. I saw, helped and corrected one team by week. It was very interresting.

On Saturdays, I arrived for the last half hour of the kids class and for the half hour between the kids class and the adult class, I did about 150 rolls... it helped me a lot for my techniques. I realised that I was so exhausted that the techniques came naturally.

December 16th, it was the examination at my dojo...

I did for the first time the uke during an exam.

It was for the kids classes. Really interresting, very stressfull too. I was so focussed into the techniques the younger ones had to do that I almost forgot my own.

As a result that I had to be super concentrated for my exam. It went well

I received congratulations from my teacher and partners. I am very proud of it.

In 2007, I'll train for my 3rd Kyu, I hope to get it in May but if it's not in May, it will be in December.

For Christmas, I received a mat that I installed into my training room at home. I filled two bags, one with techniques and one with attacks. I train at home every day, for about one hour or so picking an attack, a technique and trying to figuring it.

Happy new year to all of my readers!
