Last night, F-sensei combined the classes because K-sensei is away in Taiwan visiting a club over there. Perhaps someday I will go and visit too. I expected more people but there were enough guys there to give me a great workout. I was drenched in sweat by the end of the night. I think we were all blue belts too, apart from two white belts. The theme of the week seems to be take-down and F-sensei showed us double-leg entry from judo grips. It was very good. I wish we did more of this.
Sparring was tough because they were all strong guys who weighed more than me. I managed a few good techniques such as butterfly sweep, sitting guard sweep, inverted guard to triangle and even got off a drop seio-nage and hikkoki-nage. I am very happy with my stand-up progression so far. It feels like I have some new toys to play with.
