Tenchinage, Iriminage, Kokyunage
As I predicted on Tuesday, I was pretty stiff to begin with. After warming up (it was a warm evening so I was soaked by then) sensei had us do some ryotetori (or ryokatatetori) tenchinage. Then we worked with variations of ryotetori and ryokatatori on the attack side and tenchinage, iriminage, and kokyunage on the defense side. Some of them felt very familiar but in some, sensei had us stepping off the line to the side I'm not used to for that particular attack. Interesting and engaging. Even though I got pretty tired the class went fast.
