February 1st, 2005, Senior Moment

Last night at class I was the senior student. This has never happened before in a regular adults class. There were only three of us, myself and two fifth kyus. Sensei concentrated on basic techniques…shomenuchi ikkyo, nikkyo and sankyo…omote and ura.

One of the fifth kyus is VERY difficult to move. He's just not familiar with what to do for ukemi. He takes a step when he should be going down on his knee. Stuff like that. Or maybe I'm not doing the technique properly. Or maybe I let him lead me and sacrifice my technique.

It was the first regular class I'd been to in almost a month, so I was feeling pretty rusty. And to make me more aware of my flaws, some beginners were watching the class.

I was happy to take ukemi for Sensei though.
