Well as usual I arrived early to see what was going on with Jiu Jutsu and I think the best thing about going to lesson is walking up to the room and hearing the slaps and falling noises emanating around the empty corridors, so nice.
I arrived and saw something strange, two blue belts showing how a technique should be done and Brent Sensei sitting back and letting them do so?
I bowed to the class and then Brent and he then told me that he was super sick and could do really nothing!
So I passed my condolences and carried on getting changed and watching the class.
Every one arrived and we had two new students come one from last week Thursday and the other came on recommendation from a existing class member.
We all got on the mat and warmed up and then did some basic movements which was fun as Joss took this and was really good! Then on to the techniques.
We did Shomen irimi nage again my most favourite technique in the world. I did this with little dangerous guy and did it quite well and we also did some reversals which I did in front of the class with Joss!
It was a strange class but well worth it.
The class also started with Brent giving another speech on how Aikido is a family with no competition and we are all one and if one doesn't work then we all don't and that how getting a black belt is not the "Be all and end all" of it!
