In General You're Playing with the Big Boys now....... Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Can't help it, but that's the song that just kept on repeating itself in my head during the lunch class......

I didn't get to train with Nabil Wednesday night, so today for the first 15 minutes, he was the only student in the lunch class.

So for 15 minute we did suwari waza kokyu ho and shomenuch ikkyo suwari waza, then Vadim came to class.

Well, after the 20 minute marker, Nabil had to rest, and then rest, again rest, and then rest again.

Nabil just started training at the dojo about a month or two ago. He comes everyday, but today was his day to train with two black belts, myself and Vadim. Vadim is nicked named, the pit-bull. He is built like a fire hydrant, short stocky and extremely strong. He has been training at the dojo for close to 8 years. I don't think I ever been able to successfully perform a technique on him. And today, Nabil got the best of him and of me. Twice as good as a private lesson.

The best classes have been the ones when only one or two students show up. Always extremely intense, never boring and always exhausting!

Can't wait to train tonight……….

Nabil is great-with his tenderized knees he came for the evening class and stayed till the end, good spirit! Panda Warrior mentioned tonite that since you started training with us (not teaching) he was loosing more weight than before ! Good luck on that University of Houston demo-I do promise I will speak about our special "only Aikido" presentation in UH this fall. Could be a good thing for public promotions P.S. Mike was teasing me about my user name...
