It's thanksgiving here in the states today and usually most things around the holiday are put aside to get ready for family and cooking. However, we took a vote and decided we'd do both classes as way to squeeze in as much training as we could. However the first class only had five of us and then after class was only three of us.
Reed started the class very quickly and that means the bare minimum of warm so we could get to content. He asked how much was on my plate. This meant that he was learning something and needed someone else to work with. He does his best learning by teaching someone else. Since he's kind of being pushed to work on his next belt he needs to learn four new kata under the Ryuei-Ryu school. We'd learned Anan which was the fourth I believe, but Pachu is the first. At any rate the pronunciation of said kata sounds like a sneeze to me; thus the title of the post.
We got most of the way through it, but class ended. Everybody said their farewells since I'll be going on vacation to Cambodia and Malaysia for the next couple of weeks.
After class consisted of Kyle, Daniel and myself. This is Kyle's first after class session and thankfully we had the garage to ourselves. It made for a spacious environment since it's usually six of us packed in there.
As usual, it was work on the kata to refine pieces and parts for quite a long time. This time I took notes on four areas to work on. I know that by the end of the year I'll be pretty sick of this kata, but I'll look damn good doing it.
We finished up by doing the application twice. I'm ironing pieces of that out to smooth things out. By the time I get back Mark will probably be fantastic and I'll have to remember stuff all over again.
