So it's been a week. after last weeks Judo practice, I was sore, I mean sore. I havent been that sore since my first day of Jujitsu. I couldnt believe it. I felt so out of shape. Oh well, no pain no gain. I know thats chiche, but its so true.
So I had my Judo practice last week and we only worked on ground skills. It made me feel right at home. It was funny because it was my first day and one of the younger black belts teamed up with me. She asked me if I had any skills, and I told her a little. As soon as we started, I beat her very quickly. The next few people I beat very quickly as well. There was however, a black belt that I couldnt beat. He was about 290lbs and he had skill. He beat me by pinning me. I couldnt move. That was crazy! Im not used to the pinning thing, so I felt fine just sitting there. I guess I have to retrain to get out of certain situations in which I have become accustomed to.
I personally love Judo. I talked to my Aikido instructor and told him I would stop by this week after Judo. I know next month Ill be doing both. Ill do Judo, then go straight to Aikido. This is why I had to take a month off. I had to condition and prepare for this.
My schedule has changed a bit now. I wake up, do Judo, go to Aikido, then come home and lift weights, then go to work for 8 hours.
It's a cycle I tell yah. I figure it's only two days a week, why complain.
Once I start doing Kenpo Ill be busier. I guess I want to fill my days with training. two days a week is not enough for me.
Well, thats the end of this day. Kind of boring, but I figured it was time to come talk to myself again.
