Hey Guys

Had fun!

Terry slept all the way back to North NJ due to Steve's wife Cathy plying the poor guy with drinks. (Shame on you Cathy!!!)

Saw a couple of the posts and can't believe the whinging!

Gojuwarrior;
I wouldn't have had to hog the time if the simple instruction to move one foot and then the other hadn't caused you to fall flat on your a$$ every time you tried to do it.
As for the uke bit. I hit 50 this year, am folically challenged and what's left is grey. If a young, muscular, conditioned guy like you can't handle a ditthering old guy holding your hand, I don't know what the world's coming to.

And as for the complaints by Matt;
Matt is clearly a wimp. I was holding Matt gently by the hand and applying hardly any pressure to it. Matt insisted in trying to levitate his body off the floor which simply meant that the choke from my spindly old legs went a bit deeper into his neck.
You may notice in the photo Matt's other hand, desparately trying to find something to tap. If he'd wave'd it around any more, we would have both taken off.

As for the expression on Matt's face, there's a simple explanation;

"Who's your Daddy Matt? Come on now, who's your Daddy?"

Had a great time with everyone.

Met good people, had a few beers, good food, and even got some training in. How good does life get.

What did JohnL show you guys?




Standard shotokan stuff.

Linear, rigid, stiff, punching kicking and blocking.

JohnL started off showing us some footwork drills, which became a partner drill in maintaining proper distance.

He then showed us a "sensitivity" drill, where you had to keep the back of your hand touching your partner's, the idea being to (again) maintain distance as your partner moved around. Then we did it with one person closing their eyes! This excercise reminded me very much of Chi Sao practice from Wing Chun.

Lots of circular footwork in these drills, and with the sensitivity drill, it seemed more like KungFu than Shotokan.

He also showed us some kata applications against kick defenses, and even grappling stuff! JohnL knows his stuff.

I think this needs to be your signature, John.

Wow! It looks like a lot of good training and ideas were swapped around. Sorry I missed it. I hope MattJ explained my sitch to everyone. My son was scheduled to be with his mom on Sunday but do to some poor planning on her part, our schedule got mixed up. It meant that I had the pleasure of my son's company on Sunday but that I would not be able to attend due to the fact that he is only 8.

It turned out to be a good thing I didnt chance bringing him up with me because he wound up having a flu-like virus all day Sunday. He was in and out of the bathroom every ten minutes and was miserable all day, the poor little guy.

I will be sure to catch the next one.
