The temperature has really dropped from Tuesday and last night it was hovering around 10 degrees C in the dojo. My feet were numb at the start. Most of the guys wear socks but you slip everywhere on the mat and I hate it. I should buy some sports socks with grips on them but I much prefer my own bare feet. Yuuki and Akira turned up so that made 3 blue belts being taught by K-sensei. We went over basic chokes from the rear mount; Okuri Eri Jime（送り襟締め）, Kara Ha Jime（片羽締め - literal translation is one winged choke which I think is cool), Bow and Arrow Choke and Ezekiel Choke.
