I was instructed by sensei Ed. We worked more on ukemi from a standing position along with foot
sweep practice. Working on moving into position for ippon seoi nage, I trained with a partner (Margret)
to slide my feet just in front of hers with my back straight. Then we worked on a new throw, o goshi
[1]. A little later, we worked on the first two
easy katame techniques. My partner and I learned hon kesa gatame [1]
and kami shiho gatame [1].
Lastly, I partnered with an advanced
student (Dennis) who was instructed to sweep my foot with de ashi harai
[1] so I could practice ukemi.
