In the dojo last night, Sensei had us all kiai for about 98% of the class. I liked it, because, I wasn't the onlyone kiai'ing for a change. Sensei normally does, but as far as students, I'm pretty much the one doing the kiai for the majority (espesially during bokken work). After class, a 3rd kyu and I where talking, and got to doing nikkiyo and sankiyo for about an hour outside of the dojo going over the finer points of the techniquics. ANd then we got to talking about hydrogen powered cars and how the govedrnmet would dislike them being in full use because they have to much stock in oil. THEN sensei (around 10:15 pm) came back to the dojo and said "you guys still here?" (class ends around 8 pm here). It was fun. I learned alot.
