It's great to hear about the Judo class, DP. Happy for you. I know I look forward to my one Aikido class per week. It's inserted a freshness to my training that I haven't experienced in years.


Definitely, i really enjoyed it plus i think it will help my bjj massively. Not jsut from the obvious addition of throws but the different mentality on the ground. I can often fall into the trap of being too reactive on the ground and not forcing the pace. Judo guys are totally not like that - i commented to the instructor that their class newaza pace was more like our competition / competition class pace! That can't do anything but help me longer term i think

Wednesday 24 April

Karate Session

Warms ups as per usual

Kihon

Worked on grading required kihon, seemed to go smoothly

Kata

Worked every kata from Kihon Kata to Bassai Dai. Couple of minor points to work on (emphasising change of eye location at one point etc) but none of them were recurring ones which is good!

Kumite

Lots of kumite. Worked several rounds of jiyu ippon kumite and then jiyu kumite. Went smoothly i think though the CI is wanting us to all go in a LOT harder : i landed a couple of blows to one of the Black belts that were 'tocuh contact' which is the usual requirement and was forcefully told to hit them with a lot more power! Slightly unusual for a shotokan class i think but i enjoyed it!

Wednesday 1 May

Karate Session

Warm ups

We went straight into kumite drills. Working gyaku tsuki from static positions then moving, hitting opponent in stomach. Not full power to stomach but controlled contact. Worked quite a few rounds of this then some jiyu kumite.

Moved onto kata after this and worked through all katas from kihon kata to bassai dai

Really good class - enjoyed it a lot

Thursday 2 May

Judo session

Really good class though a tough one. Warm ups included carrying someone down the length of the mats (the mats are three competition sized matted areas in a row) on your back and also carrying them on your shoulders in a firemans carry. I had to do it with another guy who is 100kg+ so it was pretty tough!

We then worked O-Goshi and a variant where you grab over the shoulder rather than around waist (can't remember the name!). We then got out crash mats and started working more throws: ura-nage, te-guruma , koshi guruma (i get the names mixed up as new but one was the standing firemans carry and the other one is the almost reverse version), o-goshi. Was fun though a heavy session. Split into two mats: one for the bigger people (with 4 of us) and one for the lighter guys (with about 9). So we had lots more reps to carry out since the longer line took more time!

Finished with a few rounds of newaza. Was pretty tired but pleased how it went. Worst round was an ultra hw brown belt who passed my guard and when i turtled up was attacking to the back but managed to avoid being submitted or pinned which is good! Managed to pull off a few submissions on a couple of the blue belts which is always good too!
