Today in class we covered movement (Tai Sabaki) which is much trickier than I'd imagined it would be. It's pretty hard to move without exposing yourself to Kuzushi. I learned to walk while pulling my opponent off balance and trying to position their feet in order to throw them.

I also had my first Randori which was a lot of fun. smile I managed to get in an Osoto Gari after pulling my opponent towards me so that my left foot was in line with his right foot and then reversing the motion quickly into the Tsukuri.

In a later round, he tried for an Uchi Mata but I stopped him by pushing against his hip with my hand and then I countered with a Kosoto Gari.
