A calmer class

Dana taught the Monday class as usual. His classes almost always focuses on a single attack. Last night's class centered on ushiro ryotedori (two hands grabbing two wrists from behind). This is one of my bug-a-boos, actually, so I was glad to practice.

The usual footwork in the opening resulting from this attack is simple enough, yet I am never satisfied with how I do it. A friend and sempai, Chris, noticed I was a bit off and helped me after class. I felt more confident after that. :D

Dana's class is always fun and a calm, which is nice for a change. It gives me a chance to relax and try to learn something. I always appreciate it.
