Hey,

Well I arrived at class and took off my shoes and saw Gerald who laughingly said "There's nasty Terry" and I looked a little confused and went inside.
I slowly got myself changed and watched the Bojutsu class go through their paces and Katas.

This morning he had Tonfa and Kama katas over and over and over.
Brent Sensei asked if I would like to join in but I really do not want to do weapons at this time so I declined and watched from the side until I could get the mats out for Aikido.

Brent then asked that every one help with the mats and we all worked together putting them out and making it ready for class.
This time we had one guy from Germany with us who, some knew him yet some did not, I was one of them. We started by the usual warm up taken by the German guy who was embarrassed and a little confused as to what we where supposed to do and then we did the Kata's that the 6th and 5th Kyu's should know for their grades.
I had to then take the other kata which I knew yet got wrong with one piece of foot work. Then we did this with swords where you had to dodge the sword coming at your head. This was fun yet I am not into that as it is not what I class as Aikido.
We then did a weird Kata where you move with movements that are a little too exaggerated.

We then did the five techniques over and over from a grab and then on to the five from a turn.

Super class.
