Tomorrow will be my fourth lesson and I'm pretty excited. I took some good advice and practice some kata by slowly going through movements of certain techniques. This helped me find key points of certain techniques that I'm confused on or need work with. My back is still in some pain, but after the gym tonight with weight training, extensive stretching and the spa and sauna, I should be feeling much better.
This week I'm expecting to start participating in roll practice, no matter how terrible it looks. I also want to start concentrating more on stretching, as well as nikyo and sankyo so I can really start to understand their effectiveness. Hopefully tomorrow is a decent lesson and I can continue to progress!
