Weapons! Wow more people and stick involved. Again Sensei says that my attacks are not at all real, and that I am almost always too far from my partner or too close! Weapons seems to elude me more than anything. We did the 10th kumi jo. I did eventually get the step into the attacker person on when I was the Uke Jo. Although the throw part I think I was too timid in. A Good sticks class, as no one got bonked by me!
I dont' feel very graceful or confident with the Jo, I worry about bonking people more than I worry about the technique, and I guess that is what comes out.
