Ninth class and Trevor was back from Vegas. He looked totally fine, etc.
If you dont know who Trevor Prangley is, refer to past Aikiblogs to find out.
We went over butterful guard again. We basically went over the sweeps, choke/sweep, reverse sweep, and how to get out of the butterfly guard.
We ended up going live at the end and it was interesting to say the least. Its not a position I am comfortable in yet, but I will work on it more and more until I feel comfortable with it.
We went over training on kicks again. We did so many reps of the kicks that I actually felt my shin bleeding on the inside. Sounds funny I know, but when I got home I iced it down and it hurt to touch them. Now dont get me wrong, I know this is a process in which my leg will develop scar tissue and I will no longer feel any pain. But I cant wait for that day because wow, Im a wuss. Hurts like a mother.
We did about 1000 reps today, only 9000 more before I feel comfortable doing the kick, hahah.
