Drilling the entry with bands is helping me a lot. Also, after class was done I stayed on an hour to practice seio-nage, hikkoki-nage and ude-gaeshi. I think my progression with these 3 throws may improve fast because I rank myself as a beginner with them and beginners always improve fast. I am in a slump with ground techniques and passing right now. I can't get any good techniques going as of late. So I am concentrating on stand up to perhaps trigger something in my jiu-jitsu that will bring about an overall improvement.
There were a lot of members today. The mats were warm and I drank a ton of water. Lots of people stayed on at the end. Tsuzuki came to weight train because his ear has flared up. Mine has also. My right ear is swollen a bit which is unusual because until now it has always been the left side since I am left handed and usually lead with that shoulder.
Sparring time: 7 x 6 mins = 42 mins
Notable moments: Getting a nice triangle submission but I still need to take action when being stacked. Drop seio-nage on another blue belt.
