Hands Hands Hands. I must work on my hands through throws. It's funny how I seem to be able to focus on one or two elements of a throw and then when I try to add one it it totally falls apart. Of course you need all the elements to make it look eloquent.
We had a good class last night. Terry Spencer taught and Jim Irvine also worked out, so the class was overflowing with experience. We had a new young person show up and it was great to see some new blood energized by judo. We did some hold down drills and I also did some juji gatame reps. It had been to long since I drilled that so it was good to start to get the flow again.
I worked a lot on combos last night:
Hiza Garuma to Hari O Goshi : 20 reps
Kouchi Gaka to Ippon Seonagi : 10 reps.. (although some of those I ended up throwing the Kouchi)
Kouchi to O Uchi to Tai Otochi : 3 reps..
Kouchi to Tsuri Goshi : 3 reps
Ashi Garuma : 10 reps
Tsuri Goshi : 10 reps
O Uchi Gari : 3 reps
O Soto Gari: 5 reps
We also did quite a few fit ins or Uchikomi (fit in drills) as well.
