Gokkyu Test!

We started off with warmups ending with ukemi and shikko around the mat to break in the new mats. They're nice! Grippy when you put weight on them but a little slicker than the old ones if you don't bear down. They're a sage or tatami green and look nice. The velcro is *very* strong.

We worked on yokomenuchi variations tonight; tai sabaki, iriminage, sokomen iriminage, and a couple other variations. At the end of class P. F. tested for gokkyu tonight and did pretty well. I got to take part in his randori.

I felt zapped too often, tonight. I need to avoid simple carbs before class because I think I have a sugar crash.

Weight: 300
