Friday 8 May - class - 40 mins warm up/fitness including tons of core strength exercises - very good - some I had not done before and with all of them we did quite a lot more than I would have at home. I have been thinking of going to another class (I probably have three options) for that very reason. We had a session talking about self defence (mainly aimed at the younger boys in the class - much of the stuff Sifu recommended were things I have been doing instinctively for years). Forms from most junior onwards and then the focus was on further practice. This time I was more in coaching mode with one of the younger guys and got him to talk me through the stances for each move in the form we were practicing. Got a couple of corrections out of that for myself. Finished class with bit of light sparring and a long discussion about the election results. Strong views all round on this issue.
