Do what with who now?

on March 19, 2013

Has anyone seen my jiu-jitsu? I seem to have misplaced it. Not sure where I saw it last. It isn’t really much to look at anyway, but it’s mine and I would like it back. So if you see a little lost jiu-jitsu lying around, would you let me know? I’d appreciate it.

Large class, probably because everyone is back from Spring Break and didn’t have any immediate homework or tests to worry about.

Warmup, then drilling a butterfly sweep that involved a backwards roll. Oh boy. I could do it to one side no problem, but the other side was ridiculously difficult — until Robert pointed out that I needed to look in the direction I wanted to go. That lined my spine up in the right direction, and off I went.

Intermediate class started with rolling, then progressed in to more rolling. Then the room was getting humid and hot from all the sweating people — the windows had been completely fogged up a long time ago — so we opened the front door and let the steam roll out in to the street. That must have been a sight to the drivers out there, heh. Now that the room was cooler, we moved on to even more rolling.

Tried to work on the grips Tim wants, but found no places for them. Squishered and smashed every which way. Tried to turn up the intensity a few times, but that fizzled right back out. I recall one moment where I thought, “Aha! That was some jiu-jitsu!” but the rest was just a mess. :/

      Heh, well, even on its best day, it’s only about kitten-size and kitten-fierce, though it does have lots of annoying hooks and plenty of wiggling. Oh, and it doesn’t have any takedowns.

  2. I’ll take it. There’s nowhere to go but up for me.
