Slowly, little by little I think I might be getting back into shape. I was actually able to make the whole class yesterday without having to actually sit out to catch my breath.
I do have to comment, that Yulia attacked me like she never has before on Friday. She was committed to making sure that my statistic of 88% went up to 99%. It was a wonderful feeling to have such an honest committed attack. I really felt like there was not much I could do.
Don Ramirez is doing a wonderful job teaching the classes...WOW, I am just impressed. Last night the techniques he taught, the flow of the class and the attendance was incredible.
I got to train with Mike, Marc, Steve, Jordan, Anguel, Nabil, Adam...I'm not sure why Yulia stayed away from trainning with me, and hopefully I'll get to train with everyone next time.
As I looked out before class started, I was so reminded about the nick name Kato Sensei gave my dojo....."The Gorilla Dojo".
Feels like to the good old times!
