In General Advanced class followed by beginners class Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Nothing like training very intensly. I always enjoy it when my partner discovers he needs all the air he can get and has no air left to talk. Tonights advanced class luckily started out like that. And yes it is possible to do suwari waza kokyu ho at such a level that your partners is really gasping for air.

After advanced class the beginners course, including a dozen people that only have had something like 4 or 5 lessons started again. Shifting down the gear a bit can be quite demanding as well. No more high speed training. Careful and watchful training. Try to avoid that the beginners hurt themselves. Why do some beginners instinctively move in the most dangerous directions?? One smart beginner figured out today that I was not going to tell him how to do it and that he just had to try and practice. Guess what, he did great and was really improving.

Sensei was ill today. I was the most senior student present when the class started.
I like training myself better, but you cannot always have what you want. Being in charge sucks, although I must admit it can be very instructive as well.
Everybody behaved really nice and put a lot of focus, attention and sweat into their exercises. I just sat in seiza and observered.

I had to change the lightbulb today after accidently wacking the lamp with my suburi to. Somehow the impact of the suburi to on my stuff seems te be bigger than the impact of my bokken.

Tuesdays beginners course was great fun again. Having lots of people around that only had 3 lessons makes you think about your own beginning. I guess I must have been as strange when I started, but it still is hard to recognize yourself in the disconnected arms and legs that beginners seem to have.
Some move with great ease as where others get confused only by thinking of moving.
Paid extra attention to one guy that continued to stick out his arm while tumbling backwards. He seemed annoyed by it, but heck at least he did not break his wrist.
