Practice today was fun: got to partner this very tall young man in the earlier class and he resisted a lot so it tested my skills a lot more than usual. And of course I found some of my techniques needed improvement to succeed against him. I found in particular I needed to drop my centre a lot more to make him lose his balance and the instructor came around to show me how to adapt moves when there's such a large height difference. The later class I was partnering one of the senior yudansha which is always instructive as well. Have to say the guys tend to keep my training real as they're all generally a lot stronger so a little resistance goes a long way.

Lots of guys are showing up on Friday now...we have 17 people on the mat today...I think it's the prospect of grading coming up. I fortunately don't have to grade this time around so I can kick back and relax and just help them train by being crash dummy .
