Re: On viewing technique

As some people have already written:

When I first started, I tried to watch out for a different thing each time the technique was shown. First time maybe just the attack, then the feet (also: which foot ends up in front?), then the hands and so on. Sometimes I didn't get it all but that's what the senior students were there for...

But it gets much easier pretty fast, anyway, once you know the "framework" of teh basic techniques. It's nice to just think "then do shiho nage" instead of "move opposite arm there, grip this and that..."
