During this class, we tried to focus on ukemi, which has always been a challenge for me. I am always inspired by the variety and usefulness of ukemi. In theory, anyway. I imagine that in real life, there is no time to do proper ukemi. Much in the same way we panic when faced with an opponent outside class. Anyway, I guess I am too young to understand.
We introduced ourselves to break falls, and a bit of the front feather fall (wave). There was some excitement when someone mentioned making some progress in the feather fall.
The techniques we tried were:
- Suwari waza kata dori ikkyo omote
- Tachi waza kata dori ikkyo omote
- Tachi waza yokomen uchi ikkyo omote and
- Tachi waza gyaku hanmi katate dori kokyu nage
Piotr sensei is back from Croatia. He said that his experience of the place can be compared to Mombasa, Kenya, but cheaper. About our classes, he mentioned that we make many mistakes, but are headed in the right direction. So, let’s keep practicing until we make perfect.
