Well I've screwed up my arms. I've been out of class for 4 days now. Monday we were practicing striking and I guess I didn't have a good view of what Sensei was doing, so when I had to practice I was hitting wrong. One of the guys was holding a focus mitt, and he put all his body weight into it, I thought we were doing a corkscrew backfist, seemed kinda odd to me at the time too. Anyhow I kept hitting the mitt and since there was no give to it my wrist kept bending while locked, so I pulled my tendons in my forearms. 30 hits later Sensei tells me we're doing a loose hook; if only I'd known.

So, the next day I woke up and went to get coffee and noticed my arms were hurting, grabbed my cup and couldn't hold on and dropped it. Since then I needed two hands to hold on to things and yet still my hands were shaking. Can't squeeze a fist, and working istough, I have trouble pulling the cap off of a marker- sucks you know, I work using power tools. So, hopefully I heal up by Monday and get to go back to class, my arms and wrists are starting to feel a bit better now anyway. Geez I hope they don't scratch my name off the attendence sheet, it's kinda like getting kicked off the Island.

You guys should look into getting hand wraps if you don't have them already and some good bag gloves.
