aww Greg I hope you feel better. We missed you. Had a total blast with Kote Gaeshi.

Sammy I'm sorry I didn't get to work with you tonight. Nice energy in the dojo tonight. You got a good taste of how Tara's classes tend to go.
Oh, a Tara class. I'm REALLY glad I didn't go. I don't think I'd have been able to keep the energy up past warm-ups.

Kotegaeshi is one of my favorites. And Sammy, listen to the others' advice. Don't worry so much about "correct". One thing at a time. You'll have classes where you make the same mistake as last class and others were you get that part right and another part wrong! There's just a lot going on and it takes a good bit of repetition to get body memory down.

Once I get the body memory of most of the techniques down, I'll let you know how that feels. I'm guessing 30 years.

Re: Had my first class tonight.

LOL Greg yep she had us sweating and breathing hard very quickly.

Sammy I swear most days nothing seems to go right then every so often I get the tiny glimpse of what it is like when it does... then it's gone again. What keeps me coming back besides trying to figure out the puzzle is just how great I always feel at the end of a class. No matter how lousy I may have felt before it. The last few classes I have noticed a marked reluctance to leave when second hour is over. Either that or it's because I just can't move anymore.

Re: Had my first class tonight.

Well, 4th class and 5 weeks in, (7th if you count the other classes I had at other clubs) I wrote out a cheque tonight, so I guess that officially makes me part of the community...
