In General Kick Sparring? Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #2 New 08-26-2004 07:30 AM
Today in class we did a nice technique. I always seem to power through techniques. I guess I make them happen instead of allowing them to happen. Oh well Ill learn.

I was noticing that Kirk (another student) has really great skill. He's only a yellow belt, and has been training for like 2 years. Im amazed that he's that low in rank. I think hes to a point that he doesnt care because hes learning. The guys got some patience.

Anyways- after doing this technique, we did kick sparring. Ive never heard of it. One person throws kicks at another, while he/she is to block those kicks.

It honestly seemed very awkward to me. No guidance, just block them. Well, I dont block kicks in Jujitsu, I either move, or I enter and take them down. It's what Ive been taught. How can I take away something I am great at, and do this junk that feels awkward?

Its no my school so I try to do what Im supposed to, but I suck at it. This makes me feel ashamed. Here I am, an instructor of Jujitsu, and I cant do what this instructor wants me to.

In my old class I was the "best" in sparring. I beat my instructor time and time again. But now Im being told to learn another way... grrrr.. makes me mad.
