Nothing like training very intensly. I always enjoy it when my partner discovers he needs all the air he can get and has no air left to talk. Tonights advanced class luckily started out like that. And yes it is possible to do suwari waza kokyu ho at such a level that your partners is really gasping for air.

After advanced class the beginners course, including a dozen people that only have had something like 4 or 5 lessons started again. Shifting down the gear a bit can be quite demanding as well. No more high speed training. Careful and watchful training. Try to avoid that the beginners hurt themselves. Why do some beginners instinctively move in the most dangerous directions?? One smart beginner figured out today that I was not going to tell him how to do it and that he just had to try and practice. Guess what, he did great and was really improving.
