Back to basics

We’re back to hammering on basics on Tuesdays, and I’m very happy about it.

As someone who doesn’t have a regular training partner outside of class, there are a lot of concepts that have made their way into my brain, but not my muscles.  I can understand the concepts of ballet (for example) better than anyone in the world, but I’d still be crap at performing.

So we repeated and repeated largo concepts and counters, and siniwallis concepts and strikes, as well as the more entertaining one-for-one drills.  We never made it to the threatened and dreaded swamp drill, but I’m sure it will come soon.

As many wiser than I have said, build a strong foundation.  The advanced material will build on that foundation and stay with you forever.
