*le sigh* Accidentally stayed up until midnight. (Accidentally as in “Let me just play this next part”… which stretched in to almost 3 hours longer than expected. Oops. I’ve now set an alarm on my phone to tell me when to go to bed…)

Turned off the alarm and slept through morning class. Turns out it was Andrew and Aubrey, so hopefully she got to learn some basic stuff she still has questions on.

Fundamentals Class, BJJ

Stiff after only 3 full days off. (Probably didn’t help that I spent most of those days sitting.)

Warmup, then drilling armbars from guard. Then climbing armbar from guard. Drilled with Aubrey.


One of Tim’s brown belts, who had to quit because of school, came in tonight. He and Tim hadn’t seen each other in a while and wanted to catch up, so they went off to talk. Justin just had us roll for the whole class.

With Aubrey, Buddy, Ed, and Justin. Got started slow with Aubrey and couldn’t pick it up later (and even the few times I managed to get the overall intensity up, I was backing off on pressure, because I do with her and that’s what my brain had going on. Pfft.), so played a slow and grip-fighting game instead. Did remember to try to use the grip-fighting to actually accomplish something rather than just being hand-waving. Although, grabbing a lapel or belt with Justin is a bad idea — he gets it back and then chokes you with it. Oops. 😛

No Wednesday morning class this week; Andrew will be out of town.

  1. This has nothing to do with your post, but I saw it today and thought it was hilarious. Maybe this is why those karate people always have the lights off:
