I arrived at the dojo before time as usual and watched the jiu jutsu class as I got changed into my Gi.
Rene arrived and we chatted as he got ready and then we where invited on to the mat o train a little Jiu Jutsu.
We where shown how to get out of a Full Nelson and how to do a "Arm bar' which was fun and we all had a nice time in learning it. We then started our own class which first consisted of the communal warm up where we all count together in Japanese and then some rolls and falls and then we went on to a movement thing which I could not get at all. We then moved on to "Tenchi Nage" which was done in a different way as to what I have been thought and was a little difficult for me but I think I did ok!
Then on to a "Nikajo" technique which was amazing and i had a lot of fun doing and getting right.
The lesson was very fast and very technical and I enjoyed it a lot and then came the infamous Aikibuken warm down where we did falling and getting up without using your hands to the Sensei's timing.Then on to pushups and then leg thing which nearly makes me throw up.
