Today class went well. I actuly felt like i may have goton a litte bit of what was going on and some parts were even fun. In the frist part we did alot of punching the person and then back falling. The other person throw you by pusing your neck or grabing your back and a new one going under your arm and grabing the wrist, then throwing you back. I was happy beacuse mostly I did not put my hands back when I did a back fall. Yay me! Then the second half we worked with boken. I kinda staring to finaly know boken cotta one. I then not sure what the next one we worked on was, but I knwo I don't know it really well. I ened up geting correced on making an agressive face , or should I say lack there of. The person whom I was working with siad it confuse people when you are not agress enoff, or don't focouse on the power enoff. Espely when youi have a wepon in your hand. The wepon says I am going to attack and if your face dose not say that then it's confuseing. Wich I get, just was not relly constios that I was not , nore that it was SO inportent. I aprently do not hit hard enoff, so I worked on hiting a sorwd that was held by my partner. I kinda am afreind to not hurnt the other parson but , I gess I have to trust my self enoff that I am not going hurt the other person and I control my self well enoff. Then we worked on something taht we were suposed to work on in the first place. wich somehow I ened up hiting my head I not entrly sure if I did or the other person, but I kinda hurt. Then agin my ulsey most sentive part is my head, I seroly have the tenderest head in the world. Pontails hurt after awhile. It passed , partener deced to partice open had so we worked on 6th que requriments. Then we did demonstaration, I kinda faild. I messed up what we worked on 5 mints ago. Oh well I trying. I staring to know more tearms and movements. I lurning to know my boday enoff to know what it will do and wont. Oh an intristing observation, made by sisay when you atack with a sward the feet come along with it naturaly, so we should focose on the power of the strik , not so much the feet. I gess that goes with the fact that you are lurning to be intune with yourself and others. I hope to beable to tune into others someday. Mabby this will help with social cuse as well. who knows. Sad I fainaly string to get some things and I will be leavign this dojo for school in the fall. Oh, well. Tahnks for reading and sharing your thoughts.
