Tuesdays beginners course was great fun again. Having lots of people around that only had 3 lessons makes you think about your own beginning. I guess I must have been as strange when I started, but it still is hard to recognize yourself in the disconnected arms and legs that beginners seem to have.
Some move with great ease as where others get confused only by thinking of moving.
Paid extra attention to one guy that continued to stick out his arm while tumbling backwards. He seemed annoyed by it, but heck at least he did not break his wrist.
