In General Finding My Yonkyo Again (A Dr. Jekkyl & Mr. Hyde k Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #122 New 04-23-2004 06:24 AM
A Positive Note:
We did dive rolls for the warmup and I was (thanks to my ex-gymnast friend's advice --- see: 01-21-2004 entry, "Dive Rolls: A Conversation (of all things)" ) able to make it over two people comfortably for once --- yay me! Next stop, three...

A Not-So Positive Note:
Sigh...while doing Shomenuchi Yonkyo in Suwari Waza with Sempai Jim --- I actually found it awkward, which surprised me. And not in the nice kind of way. Am I just out of practice, or am I holding back again (see: 12-03-2003 entry, "Hi. My name is Jamie, and I'm an...Overly-Sensitive Nage?" )? Or is it a little bit of both? Grr! This old thing again! Sometimes I wish I could just go all-out and practice with full confidence, speed and extension without the worry of hurting someone else. But then I suppose that just wouldn't be me. On the other hand, I'm left constantly wondering whether or not I'm suppressing my full potential...am I really doing the best that I possibly can? Am I so worried about Uke that I'm being overly-sensitive at the expense of my own development?

A (Relatively) Neutral Note:
re: Ushiro Ryotekubidori Kaiten-Iriminage - I need to make going into the Iriminage part (from the initial turn) flow better. I'm stopping at this part too much.
