Women’s Class on Saturday. (Ha, I remembered where the building is!) Warming up used muscles I’d forgotten about… Couple of new ladies, so Jen worked with them while I reviewed Shaving Day choke and americano from mount with the rest. (Brief panic moment of: “Wait! Do I know this?! Oh, yes, these — I know these. Whew.”) Then Janet went over armbar from mount. Her S-mount has become miserable. Note to self: avoid that.

Couple of rounds. I started off with that “Returner’s Luck” phase, remembering and doing crazy things. But that gradually wore off as I continued, until I was doing stupid things and being really slow.

Some of the guys walked in toward the end of our class. They looked at me and said, “Who are you? What are you doing here?” Yeah, yeah. “I’m just visiting.”

And then, at the very end of class, Janet and I were still sitting on the mat talking a bit. Someone rushed out from the back rooms and jumped on Janet’s back — it was Will, who trained with us for years. He was back visiting while his wife visited her family. Yay! Janet got first roll with him while Andrew made me regret ever meeting a Girl Scout cookie (he likes shoulder-in-the-gut flyover passes), and then I got a round with Will. (Jiu-jitsu people are funny — haven’t see you in a long time; hugs all around; then try to break your arms. Like ya do…)
