OKAY ..where was everyone tonight …

Poor Gary was feeling very ill and couldn’t train. The class wasn’t the same without him and we pray for his speedy recovery!

…. and some of the others were squeamish about the fate that was awaiting him after abusing the Junior instructor on this very blog !!!

There were 7 of us on the mats and we covered the end of GoKyu syllabus .. rear bear hugs, front bear hugs and chokes ….

Great effort by all … Chris uked admirably … James H was a throwing demon .. Thom was as laid back as ever ..even showed off his new “ink” and the senior student Ian was as usual solid dependable and is a thespian you know …

Dan Sensei , John Sensei and I had an entertaining evening … sorry about the knee strike Dan .. but you did clatter me a few times in our randori ..

See you all on thursday

    Good session with input from all the Sensei’s present and bit of one on one between two of them which resulted in dead arms, exclamations of pain and grins.

    Only problemsaws the serious level of unfitness on my part, so I decided to go for a run last night. A couple of miles in just under 20 min, a nice leisurely pace I hear you say… So why I have woken this morning with a red raw throat?!? Am I that unfit or allergic to running? Either way I HATE sore throats :-X

    John Sensei asked me to remind you that the site needs updating as he is a 6th Dan !!!
