Classes Start!

Even though classes started today, it was rather exciting because the class was taught by my former coach, Mutsumi (Harada).  The focus of the class is on coaching methodologies.  This is perfect given the fact that I’ve been helping as coach at my club (Champions Academy) back in the US.

One interesting thing that I realized was that most university classes in Japan do not give out homework!  Yay for no extra work, but at the same time it puts a little more pressure on the students to do well on the final exam/paper.  Nevertheless, this will be a good experience and I’m excited about learning a lot while I’m here.

Tomorrow is Saturday and there’s no school.  Will be at practice as usual though.  The guys on the team are great.  Even though I’m in rehab mode, I’ll be able to continue my conditioning workouts and will be able to learn a lot just through observing their workouts.  Definitely looking forward to getting to know them better!
