New Jo!

Tomorrow I get to "test drive" my new jo, freshly imported from Japan. We are using Japanese white oak, which is heavier and stronger than my other jo (ash I think). I have been a bit squeamish about making full contact with my ash jo vs. the mighty oaks. Charlie has joked about how it's going to break. I think I may now have to buy a titanium nuclear powered jo that emits a poisonous gas when I press a hidden button. Oh wait, I already emit a poisonous gas, but I try to avoid doing that during class.

Monday AM I was a bit cranky about not really wanting to take ukemi so much. The mind complains "Waaaa, who signed me up for this!" falling on the cold, hard TKD mats. Still another month before I return to the main dojo, where the tatami mats are warm and comfy.
