About halfway through, I was wondering if I'd accidentally showed up on "wear out the new guy" night. When I inquired about it in the changing room later, I was told it was a "particularly energetic class" tonight.
Open Sky is a USAF dojo, and it was a joy to work in this fluid style. Lots of technique, no wasted time, lots of falling, very little talk. I was winded, and my legs are feeling it today (the next day).
- Kosetori Ikkyo -- Omote and Ura*
- Kosetori Iriminage -- focusing on the line up the side of Uke's body -- very much like Ikkyo
- Kosetori Kokkyuho -- like AK's favorite (one of the teachers at RBK)
- Kosetori Kotegaeshi -- same blend as all the rest, rotating the wrist
- Kosetori -- Ikkyo entry through, into Shihonage
- Tenchi Nage, Omote and Ura
- Kokyu Dosa
I can't wait to show some of these variations in my class.
* Omote and Ura are defined differently than we do at RBK
