I Felt Some Intent
Too often there is a guy in class on Sunday that starts a technique and stops just before finishing it. He considers it mean/rude to actually throw someone. This is a ridiculous attitude. Without intent, the practice can get watered down to ineffectiveness. For whatever reason, the first technique of the morning he actually finished a technique. It was great. Not that it was 100% correct but I could feel the intent. This is much different. Then as class went on I felt some of that intent disappear.
By the end of class he was doing half techniques again.
After class I commented in a positive manner to him how nice I thought he was doing in the beginning of class. That I could feel his intent. It was his thought that he was just being sloppy at the beginning of class.
I'd take sloppy any day.
Class consisted of mostly kaeshi-waza (reversals). Peter is always doing something fun.
