Back From Vac

Tuesday was my first class since returning from vacation. Nice to be
back. S led a fairly laid back class compared with some I have
attended, a nice reintroduction after an absence. Jo class with A. I
apparently have a habit of working too close to my partner with jo
techniques. We worked through some cool partnerwork sequences. Jackie
Chan watch out!

Before class Sensei was working with J on a Tai Chi kata. To me it
looked very Chinese, Kung Fu-like, with more striking techniques than I
normally associate with TC. Sometimes after class I think about going
over some of my old kata, especially to make sure I don't forget them.
I so far haven't asked if it's OK to practice "old school" techniques in
the dojo. I feel it's something I need to do now and then, but it's not
clear if it's appropriate for practice on the mat.
