In General Angry Yoda day. Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #20 New 08-05-2004 02:29 AM
Hey All,

I arrived the the dojo at 18:10 and the sun was shining and the sky was blue and it was hot,damn hot, so I knew not too many people would turn up to class, which I like.
There was a student there already cleaning the place up and i said "Hello" and got changed.
I sat on the bench beside the mat and waited it out for everyone to come.People entered in "drips and drabs" and then knuckles came in and I knew it was time. Yoda also spilled in and got changed and we waited for him to take the class. We did the usual yoda warm up then Yoda kneeled down and did all 5 techniques entering and turning form a Yokomen cut and left us to do it!
I had trouble doing this as I don't know who to do Yonkyo and gokyo properly yet, but I struggled on.
It was sore on the knees again.
We then did standing irimi nage where the Black belt boys started to tussle with each other and Yoda (Sensei) got super angry and make us do Jiuwaza for an hour.
At one point the boys had to take a time out to cool down and get more fluid.After this he made the boys get up and do Jiuwaza infront of myself and the others until they had nothing left in them, nice to see and also how your technique improves also!

Later I found out that Raging Bull and knuckles have this black belt history and they are competing against each other when they can. I also found out that our Sensei (Yoda) has quit smoking and is on angry mode factor 10 so he is not to be messed with at all.

Was a nice lesson besides the stupid politics!

On a more personal note i would like to thank you all for reading my posts here and for the help and support you are all giving me as it is very appreciated. you are all very kind and generous people and I thank you for that. My father is now on his second chemo session and is doing ok yet he is very tired all the time and gets a little confused. He is doing well and sends his regards to all.
