Well this was my third lesson and this time Rene came along after watching a Saturday class.
He was a little apprehensive as he thought that the style was a little excessive and harder than AIkikai training upstairs with Erick, yet he did like the discipline and the enthusiasm of the students and the teacher.
We both arrived and got changed and watched Sensei Hire teaching the Jiu Jutsu and waited whilst the lesson finished.
We all started the lesson with the group warm-up and counting in Japanese.
Then myself and Rene where left to our our devises to do a little break falling and a few techniques.
We did mostly movement and falling/rolling and where shown a different approach to kokyonage which was fun.
