Evening Basics class:
Worked with M on Kote Gaeshi, and Shiho Nage, Ikkyo with an adolescent that was there. He was awesome, the tips I gave were immediately transferred into action, and he was good!!! If he keeps with it I think that he is going to go far in the art. Really quite amazing!
After class I worked with Noel for 10 minutes on suwuri waza. Learned a lot. Noel is amazing if he does not want to go down to the mat, you are not getting him there with anything less than perfect technique. It was great! I learned some new things for Ikkyo, Nikkyo, and Sankyo that I hadn't seen before, mostly about spirals, and where the uke is going to go, and how to help them get there!
