Well, I went back to class last night. I kind of missed staying home and lazing about, but it was good to be back.
It amazed me how easily I got through the warm-up (granted, it wasn't a torturous warm-up last night). I did struggle with the 20 push-ups...yeah, I'm not exactly keeping up with that BBMC, am I? But the tsuki punches, the jodan uke, chudan uke, gedan uke...it was like I had never been gone. They just flowed naturally.
Kata? Well, let's just say I'm a little rusty. My turns were wobbly. My snap was non-existant. my shutos were atrocious. My kicks were severely lacking proper form. My timing was off. And that was on the kata I remembered! Well, there's always room for improvement, right? At least I know what I'll be working on in the coming months, while others are preparing for tournament.
Sensei-Hubby taught the kids during the 7pm class, and he borrowed me to assist him with some self-defense demonstrations. That was fun. We would demonstrate a technique and then he would have one child come up and perform the technique. The kids got to beat up on Yoshi Amber. They are good, though. I do not envy any would-be abductors who target these kids.
After the 7pm class, I opted to sit out of the 8pm class. I really felt like I needed to run kata on my own some more. So I went into an empty training room and ran kata, starting from the beginning of my knowledge base and going as far up as I know. I ran kata until I thought I was going to fall down dead. I also helped a yellow belt who had some questions about Heian Nidan.
Tuesday will be better. I can feel it.
