Morning Class:
Worked with Rick on test stuff. Rick thinks I am ready to test.
Worked some with Niki and Anna on sankyo some more. It was very interesting in that whenever I did sankyo with Anna she would get too close to me. Sensei came over while I was trying to figure it out. He demonstrated the technique with his hands cocked away from me, which caused me to get right up against him, and start to bunch up instead of spiraling. I then saw what I was doing and was able to get Anna to stay the correct distance from me throughout the technique.
I worked with Rick after class on Tsuky Irimi Nage. Ricks version of this utilizes an arm trap which causes a bit of jerky energy for me. I spoke with Noel about it, and he demonstrated a different version for me, one that does not have an arm trap, there was more flow for me this way. I think for me that is is better not to trap the arm and have the flow work better.

First evening class (Basics)
Worked with Melissa, Gretchen, and one of the green belts. It was a heavy dose of teaching for me. I don't know how good I am at this. I see tons of holes in all my techniques, especially when I am demonstrating it for and on the newbies. I have some questions on how to not "Blow the new Ukes out of the technique".

Second evening class:
Worked with Noel went through everything on the test. He thinks I am ready too.
At end of class we did Jui Waza! WOW!!! The only thing that would come out of my though was about 8 versions of kote Gaeishi, and one lowely Sankyo! Some of them seemed quite effective though.

After class worked on swuwuri waza and on Shoman Uchi irimi nage with Noel for about and hour!
