The mornings after Jiu-jitsu I always wake up with at least 5-6 new bruises. Last night we did take downs from standing, as a result I have 10 or 12 new ones. And it’s not like my older bruises have faded by the time the new ones show up, they are just various shades of yellow and green. So basically at any given moment I’ve got 20+ bruises ranging from purple to yellow... and there is no way around it. I love Jiu-jitsu, and Jiu-jitsu gives me bruises… so I will just have to deal. Most of them tend to be on my inner thighs, knees and elbows. But I have gotten them pretty much everywhere except my face… (and I know it’s coming, I’ve just be able to avoid it thus far.) Fingers, toes, hips, arms stomach, back, shoulders hand, wrist….
So, this is my plan. I am going to try to get a full head to toe body bruise, and hope it looks like a tan. It’s pretty much the only way I could ever accomplish a tan, and a full body bruise isn’t too far from what I have now anyway.
