Re: Your Demon Technique?

Great question. I think it changes for me alot, generally when I think I can do a technique very well and then I just F*** it up, which makes it a demon as it disheartens me and I think:

'Man, I used to be able to do this pretty well. Now Im crap!'

Didnt really have any problems on 6th, 5th and 4th kyu, not that they were perfect or anything. But the jo tori/waza really screwed me up on 3rd kyu. Much the same as Steve, I could not get the mai or the feel of the weapon, which at the time I decided was just for hitting people. Now I appreciate it a bit more and find it slightly easier.

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.
