Just finished a Saturday training session. Often we finish with 30 breakfalls (rolls). I often train with sensei on these. However, as I reached my 30th roll today, he said "keep going". We get to 40 and I think my legs are going to give out, we keep going and get to 51. I am surprised but happy he pushed me today.
The internal strength exercises continue to haunt me and I will continue to practice them to get better. Today's training focused on the chuden level techniques most of them kneeling. Many were very similar to aikido.
I am thoroughly enjoying the training and the people I am training with.
