who knew it could be so fun? sure, when i had to demonstrate it on a test almost a year or so ago, i had the most awful time figuring out which way to turn. we went over 8th kyu requirements last night. for the most part, it was most fun. now, i'm not saying i'm perfectly adept in the ways of the 8th kyu requirements, but this time round, it was a lot easier than it was back in the day.

ken was my partner for most the night. we did kaiten nage the "correct" way with uke pushing and pulling and nage going with the flow and tenkan-ing. ken is like super strong and so little old me just tenkan-ed and ken was flying across the mats. eeks. the first time we did it with such energy, uke was pulling slightly. i wasn't prepared so as ken went down, i went flying over him and almost into the indoor bikes. i don't think sensei was very impressed. lol

the second round was uke pulling slightly. ken was pushing and i tenkan-ed and he said he had to either take the roll or take a hard fall. eeks. either aren't too good for his should at this point in time. i told him "this is all your doing, remember" because he was giving me way too much energy to work with.

basics are good. we don't go over basics too often. and basics change so i'm never sure which is basic basic. it irks me when upper belts are asked to go over test material with lower belts separately and the lower belt goes, "that's not how sensei taught it". grrr. so, i go "show me how sensei is teaching it now" and we go from there. it sure makes the person trying to teach and fine tune look really great! lol oh dear...

but that's the thing about our dojo... things change. we're in constant motion nad never stagnating.
