Went to both evening classes worked on Tai Sabaki in the basics class. Which I still feel a little weak in. It seems the one technique that really requires some flow from the Uke, maybe that is because there is not enough flow from me the Nage! Nah can't be.
Second evening class:
Variations on techniques from yokoman. Shiho Nage, Ikkyo, Irimi Nage, Kokyu Ho, and others all flowing one from the other as if there were blocks and changes in the uke as you were going through the original technique. It was great, but felt a little over my head sometimes.
One of the best things was getting out of my own head for a couple of hours.
