I took the warm-up today and think it went well. Then Sensei examined D for his purple belt (he missed the last exam) while M took us through our paces with various different techniques. She is teacher's pet, so he always gets her to take over if he is otherwise occupied. While I like her personally, I think it has to be said that she's not a great teacher. Her instructions are all over the place and the stuff she does is pretty boring. Thankfully that was only 10 minutes and we got on with things after that - more empi and uraken practice, and then, for fun, doing a few slow and detailed runs-through of bassai dai. Great stuff.
