A weekend of eating crap makes for an awful Monday morning.
Somehow prodded myself to class, though did have to turn around and go back for my belt, so was a little late. Only 3 of us, so Andrew had us start by rolling round-robin. Couple times through. So tired. Little over halfway through class, he came up a game in which he’d give each of us a secret move and that was the only thing that could win the round for us. Varied from “pass guard” to “armbar from mount”, from general concepts to specific applications. And he’d try to have the two moves work in opposition, e.g. passing guard vs. triangle, so that we both wanted to work from the same setup. And of course you didn’t know what your opponent had, so anything you gave up might be it, especially since getting to positions was also part of it. After a couple rounds of that, Andrew let me take a break (because I was a boneless puddle on the mat) and do the secret move assignments and watch them roll. A few more rounds later for me, too.
So tired. Walking slow. Thinking even slower. I nearly fell asleep driving home. This is no good… And then I got to work and have an early morning meeting. Ugga.
