Saturday we worked on basic ne waza with the juniors for 45 minutes...although we all participated. Then I took over and we worked on kumi kata (gripping), then gripping/move/throw with a couple of variations, then randori.
The randori was pretty intense. Two kids are preparing for junior nationals (one is 19 y/o shodan). So he and I went at it as hard as I could (LOL, he's a 19 y/o construction worker). He managed to clobber me good 3 times so I was pleased.
On Friday I went for a mountain bike ride and managed to get the front wheel caught in a rut so I have some nice road rash on one knee and a left pinky toe that looks like my cat tried to eat it.

Friday we did an hour of randori (half throwing half ground) in which I found new ways to screw up a version of seoi otoshi where instead of dropping all the way to the mat you drop into a deep lunge instead. However I threw one of the shodans with an uchimata, a move I have not practiced since getting back from my knee injury, so I'm gonna call it a good practice.
From therwe we had a Q and A session in which I got to drill guard sweeps and basic passing as well as the more traditional seoi nage.

Judo I, first night would see 100+ kids show up, only some of which were actually registered for the course which was taught by instructor and several seniors from his local judo club off campus. Sensei Linzi certainly warned people not to chew gum or wear jewelry, and keep nails short. It had the same effect as "read chapters 4-15"....it was ignored by most.
By a few classes into the semester, the number of (regular) students would drop by half and it naturally included many well manicured princes and princesses like this young miss when they realized judo for what it was.
Thankfully most seemed to bathe although I remember exceptions...thankfully a few would cover up their natural scent with some strange hippie concoction.

I took a college PE class taught by a judo coach, and saw how difficult it can be to teach a huge class of raw beginners. This guy was a great coach, but if you wandered into class you'd see terrible shrimping, girls avoiding any effort that might muddle their appearance, 110% compliant partners, people who forgot to take off watches and jewelry, larpers practicing t3h d34dly while they were supposed to be working on something else, frat guys trying to chat up hot girls, people studying hidden flash cards for their test next hour, people incapable of ukemi and also incapable of trying. All kinds of bullshit. With over 100 people, what do you do? Take time out of the lesson to scold adults like a bunch of five year olds?

I also took Golf at the local community college best summer semester ever it was a 1/2 unit class so the total cost was like $12 or something and we got free range balls at Tecolote canyon golf course and got to play 2 free rounds of golf (although one was an excutive course so all par 3s). That my friends kicked some major ass.
I also got to watch the "kickboxing" and "martial arts" classes offered as they happened right before the cardio kickboxing. Yeah they sucked major. No contact at all stuff. They even practiced mount escapes without anyone on them.
