Katatetori Tenkan Variations and Birthday Rolls

We worked from katatetori tenkan tai sabaki tonight based on Sensei's observation of the group during aiki taiso. From katatetori tenkan we did kokyunage, iriminage, shihonage, sumi otoshi and some exotic variations. Then we threw Ed L. for his 43 birthday rolls which is always fun. We ended up with some randori practice for those that are getting ready to test.

I pooped out pretty quickly, tonight. Ugh. Good to be there, though.

Yokomenuchi and Test Prep

Still faded out before the end of class but did okay. We're prepping several people for tests. Tonight we worked from yokomenuchi tai sabaki. We did yokomenuchi sokomen iriminage, yokomenuchi kotegaeshi, yokomenuchi shihonage, and yokomenuchi iriminage. Sensei also interspersed a couple of randori for the people up for testing and some test practice at the end.
