well it was my first Saturday lesson back from holiday and sickness.
I arrived at the usual time and got ready and was met by "Old guy" who was surprisingly happy to see me and we chatted about how my holiday was and how Scotland was and everything was the usual Saturday. Then in came "Clog wearing guy" who was super happy o inform me that he was now 5th Que. I congratulated him of course and everything was normal. Then in cam "Moustache guy" and followed by the "Talkie brothers" and then in came "Old lady of the streets" and "Bald black guy".
I could not believe it and then the thought crossed my mind that the grading where just over and every one was super charged and this would die down after a month or so and then we will be back to normal lesson style.
We started with the usual entering and turning whilst holding your hand.Then iriminage and ikajo. We did something really cool which was an entering technique followed by a system where you could throw from at least 6 or 7 different angels which all had to do with here you stood.
A very hard lesson and "Moustache guy" was very hard on me and was super back in this lesson and I think he was just taken back that I returned and it knocked him a little. I will get him back though.
Rene never turned up as he is still sick and feel's not 100% but I think he has lost interest. Maybe I am wrong but you never know do you.
