Morning Class
I started this class realizing that it was probably going to be the only one that I made it to today due to a commitment in another area.
We did the four techniques from before. And I did quite a bit of rolling. I was working on rolling with a group of people doing one of the exercises. Sometimes things would go great, and other times my legs below the knees would seem to slam hard into the mat. (It hurt). Then they would go great again, then wham…Sensei came over and cautioned all of us that we should not be practicing advanced rolling till we were able to do it. I stared at him, and gave him the huh look as he was looking directly at me. He the told us that you have to roll with your foot and hand on the same side both forward, otherwise you smack the mat with your legs and stop rolling. And as he pointed out and I already knew this hurts! Once he explained this, it made sense and I now saw what I was doing. Before then I thought that I was messing up the rolls.

The whole class seemed off, and I didn't feel that I did anything as well as I have in the past….I think that I need to go slower! I might be the one that is going at light speed.

Bummed to have to have missed the evening classes.

Uke as helping Nage get the move right in practicing. I am sure that I can help my partner do things more correctly when they get stuck, just have no idea how yet.
