Katatetori Variations

After warming up, we worked on responses to katatori. First was a reversing kokyunage followed by three sokomen iriminage variations; entering in front, entering behind, and stepping under uke's arm with a tenkan turn. Next, we did the same entry into kokyunage followed by kaitenage. Then from the same under-arm entry we did kokyunage without turning which means uke has to swing around nage into a roll along with a variation where nage kneels at the throw.

Great class, tonight! Lots of variety and I had enough energy to make it through class without sitting out.
