I was so tired when I wrote the last post that I didn't notice that the title said "karate mochi" instead of "katate mochi". In my defense, this is an auto-correct problem. I'm using Nick's laptop, which autocorrects to British English, and also auto-corrects "katate mochi" to "karate mocha," which I have to manually-re-correct. Very annoying. Damn Safari browser!
Also, I was so tired that I failed to note that I was writing katate mochi ikkajo osae, when the technique we were doing was "shomen uchi ikkajo osae". Oops!!
If you don't know, "katate mochi" is "wrist grab", while "shomen uchi" is "front strike". Two very different attacks!
