Peter taught Friday night. There were 5 students. Four of us were 1st kyu and one was a 4th kyu.
I was quite happy to be doing henka waza and a little kaeshi waza.
Once or twice when I wasn't concentrating hard enough and I was just reacting I ended up going from the 1st technique into nikkyo. It's probably one of my favorite controls. I have a lot of muscle memory for it.
I was a bad partner for part of the night. When we were practicing kaeshi waza I was slowing down some when doing my technique. Ariel complained. I didn't even notice I was doing it. I guess I just didn't have faith that he could keep up if I moved us along. So.... I kept the pace up to something better and Ariel was for the most part keeping up. I need to start pushing people more.
Sometimes a cooperative dojo is bad. I'm too used to backing off still for some partners. A lot of them have learned a lot while I wasn't looking. :)
