24th extra class

Posted: May 24, 2011 by alansmurf in grading, jujitsu

Dan is working towards his black belt and Gary kindly offered to train with him at my dojo ..

alternating throws followed by Go Kyu and Yon Kyu syllabus , then a reaction drill to cool down …

Both did extremly well


  1. Best training session in a long long time, thanks for the invite!

    Greetings from India!

    Missing training…. can’t wait to get back. Dan… if you need a shorter uke for extra classes… let me know! Back late Friday night.

    Huge thanks to Sensei and Gary for the chance to train like this. A couple of hours one on one makes a massive difference and a pint is owed to a certain Uke for letting me throw him about a bit!

  4. James Pipe says:

    Argh, Smurf stop teasing me… I am missing training big time.

    Namaste Gary… All good on the Delhi belly side, so far, touch wood, but then I have been very careful with what I eat… we even found Nando’s! That was an experience… I guess we wait until I get home, just incase the Delhi’s revenge is in the post.

    Just checked in for the flights home, can’t wait to get back. Damn those bank holidays, I’ll have to wait until Thursday before training again. Let me know if multiple uke’s are required for another impromptu session for Dan… I’ll come fly with you 🙂


  5. the ginger one... says:

    Gents I would love to fit another session again before the grading but alas shifts at work get in the way. I’ll be about later to tonite and next Thursday

    • Let me know where you’re working and I’ll pull on my hoody and pretend to start a fight with you. Would be awesome to work our way through the syllabus on a crowded high street with you dressed as a copper and me chaved out to the max!

      • the ginger one... says:

        A nice idea apart from one slight problem – the first throw I would do is a makkikomi seotoshi. You’d land on concrete and it would be all over (well apart from me chuckling as I put the handcuffs on and then wait for an am ambulance)

        The thought was there though Gary… I appreciate it 😛

    gary he means it too !!!

    • Ever since experimenting with ayahuasca I have a tendency to drift off into deep trances of self reflection. During one of these trances I worked out the key to playing the stock market but I smoked the bit of paper I wrote it on by accident. Such is life.
