Last Monday night we had a good class. Had I decided to write about it sooner I probably could have given lots of detail. Suffice it to say we were playing around with a couple of thoughts.
At the end of class, Matt says.... here take a jo... you take a jo.... and so forth. Finally I go up to him and he says.... You don't get one. You're in the middle.
So we had some impromptu jotori practice. Was a bit surprised. Most of the stuff I did was standard. There were a couple of times I ended up in an odd spot but I was able to feel my way through it and do a good throw. There was one time where Andrea attacks, I blend and get the jo and do my technique and she is put a little off balance but is still holding on to the jo and more solidly than if I had done that correctly. So, what do you do when a technique doesn't work? I immediately just went into another technique. That time I threw her.
