I love it when people get back from seminars: the class is pumped up, energized and full of life! Last nights class was no exception.
Did a lot off of tenshin movement last night. Kokyunage, sumi otoshi, shiho, Irimi off of a shiho. Tons and tons of stuff.
Things I picked up on:
Need more hip on Shiho, but the footwork needs to be more precise. Uke was ending up beside me or sometimes behind me when I was going for the cut.
Breathing - Kato Sensei started doing a misogi breathing that he claims has helped his health a great deal. I'm looking forward t learning more about that and actuaally making time to do it.
So much more, but I'm too tired to go into it right now. Anyhow... 2 more hours!
