In General Wow, short class... Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Or so it seemed. (Computer was off last night...again, so I'm doing this now instead).

We started off with rolls and chiko. Watching Jeremy rolling around during chiko made me want to stop and help him, but I let sensei, since he was alredy over there. Jeremy doesn't have a gi yet, so his knees get all red doing it in shorts, heh.

We did some shomen uchi ikkyo...that was fun. I did it with Chuck and we got going pretty quick.

Chuck is kind of funny...When he swings me around and I go down, I don't flop (because sensei told me not to flop), I slide like I'm sliding to a base in baseball or softball and I exhale. Somehow those two sounds combined makes him think he's hurting me, and he kept freezing up and asking if I was alright, to which I'd chuckle and tell him yes, pin me, please.

He said he actually got to use something the other day when a friend of his got drunk and was lunging at him for some reason. He said he got beside him and held him off balance until he calmed down. Hmm...

Class sure seemed short last night. Got to do some morotidori...thing...where you take their hand over your head and then bring it down like you would swing a sword. That one was cool, too, except it was hard doing it with my sister because she's shorter than me.

Josh and I worked on shomenuchi iriminage after class some more. We went real fast and it felt...right, I guess. Really, he came, I spun, he floundered. We tried variations on footwork...different hanmi stances and entering with different feet. Some worked, some didn't. I accidentally whipped his eye with my gi sleeve, so we stopped.

No class Thursday...I think they're cleaning the dojo, or something. We'll see. Anyway, that works out, because I have my last day of classes Thursday, it's my sister's birthday, my grandparents are coming down from Tennessee, and Matrix II is coming out.
