So I had some practice today against 4 young teenagers (my soon to be step-brothers). There were four younger kids ranging from 12-16 and they said they would take me down.
So it started.
They ran in on me in swarms of two and I threw them with Sankyo, Younkyo, Shiho Nage, Irimi Nage, and other various Judo throws.
It was fun because these kids were relentless. They just kept coming back more and more. There were no rules except that I would not punch or kick, or hurt them much.
I forgot how much energy teenagers have, but they just kept coming in over and over an over for about an hour.
After that we all swam for about an hour, then back at it again. This went on three or four times in the eight hour period at the lake. It was honestly a lot of fun.
I did get to respond to attacks even if they were from children.
It may not have been real training, but it was definately fun to mess around outside of the dojo setting and just be a big kid.
The greatest thing, was that no one got hurt. We were able to have a great time without anyone really getting hurt. Of course they were not able to get me down either.
Im awaiting my students arrival so I can teach him some things today. But thats a different story.
