We had fun with katatetori today. And I had a good partner, which makes a good class!
I had a hard time doing shihonage with him. I asked him why and I found a basic point I had been missing. The angle I'd been arriving at when I did the throw was off and it diminished the effectiveness of the throw. A small change made a big difference in the technique's effectiveness. Cool!
I have found that Saturday at 11 a.m. is becoming my favorite class. I think that's because of all the good sempai that show up.
