Took the bus again.

Jasmine, the green belt, was the only other student.

We ran around the dojo again - this time Instructor Dominique had us do crunches. Yay! And we kicked and blocked at corners.

I led the 24 movements. I couldn't remember the first one for a moment, but then I did. I dont think I forgot any *and* I believe I managed to count to four after the examples. Jasmine led the kicks, and didn't do quite so well, but not bad.

Then we learned a one step fighting technique. One step fighting goes like this - attacker/attackee. Attacker goes "hai". Attackee goes "hai." Attacker steps forward and punches the air, and stays there. Attackee counters with the technique du session. The yellow belt technique was to kick the attacker's fist with a inside out to the head kick and then follow with a side kick to the body.

I need far more practice than I got, but that's because, with three people all told, we fought in a triangle, not one on one. And we lost focus at another point.

Then we did more rolls and falls - this time on a big, thick green mat that happened to be in the dojo. With the big soft mat, I was able to fall from standing, which was rather liberating. I hope I can do it from standing on the regular thickness mat. It was a lot of fun.
