I bet you hate it. I thought I'd hate it but it seems that I have some kind of talent for it.Maybe just because shihonage is my favorite technique. Maybe because we worked on shihonage for three classes in a row.
But there's nothing like ending two classes in a row with one person after another telling me how good I looked, or felt, on the mat.
Worked variations of shomenuchi also,today. My entire test seems to be repititions of kotegaeshe,kaitenage & iriminage. From shomen,tsuki,katatedori.Not a terribly daunting set of techniques.
I need to work on my yonkyo and LOTS more jiyuwaza. I wouldn't complain if we worked on that All the time instead of just during test prep. And then really, only the test candidates really get to play.
And as soon as this test is over I want to start working on my attacks...
