I pooped out again this evening. I still had a good time, though.

We started the evening with shomenuchi iriminage, always a good starting point. T. M. Sensei emphasized the zanshin and ma ai while blending peacefully. A. Sensei picked up there showed how different (and easier/more powerful) the technique was if, while blending with the attack, you keep the uke's wrist in front of your center rather than whipping his hand down behind your hip. It doesn't take pushing, straining, or over-powering uke when done this way. Remarkable!

No T. tonight. Ah, well.
