Notes on last practice:

1. shihonage: extend more to keep uke off balance when turning. I have a tendency not to and my uke after several rounds of me not extending, finally just pulled me in to show me where the hole in the technique was and told me how to fix it.

2. kotegaeshi: the first lock on the wrist is a lot more effective when done at my waist level. Have been really doing it too high.

3. relax more: especially in the kokyu exercise at the end, my uke demonstrated how I was using muscle strength when I could simply just reach and achieve a far more relaxed and effective result

Haven't praticed with this particular uke since I was a blue-gold and was really happy to get to partner him after so long. He's one of the senior dan guys who are actually very nice to the more junior to them and impart their skills very effectively. He always reminds me of a giant teddy bear somehow but with great speed and flexibility.

My falls really sucked yesterday though...somehow my left front rolls were really crooked, even more than usual.
