T's Birthday Rolls
Since Saturday is T's 17th birthday she got her first set of birthday rolls tonight. Sensei asked her to be his uke in almost every demonstration. At the end of class he reiterated all the throws (with her as uke) and then everyone got to throw her once except yudansha (and father-of-the-birthday-person -- a new custom) who can throw her as many times as they want. She was exhausted but was thrilled. Afterward, a bunch of us went out for sushi at our favorite place, Kikuya.
