And tonight Ben made us grapple for 6 minutes instead of 5 and didn't tell us until afterward. I didn't even notice. Yay for that.... and we did 6 back to back grapples, which is more then we normally do. I am just glad that tonight was the night I decided to try and pace my breathing, and remain calm when I grappled. lol Other wise I would have been a limp noodle by the end of class.
And I hate Tuesday nights... I go to classes on Monday, Tuesday and then Saturday. The wait from Tuesday to Saturday kills me every time!
I really want to get a private lesson sometime soon. I think I might do it this Thursday. I really just want to sit down with someone who knows what the heck they are talking about and pick their brain... ask them all the weird random questions I have, and get some advice on take downs.
I also just want to roll with someone who good, and then ask them what I need to work on most. I grapple a lot with Allie and Phil during the week, but we are all pretty much on the same basic level, so it is hard to tell where exactly I suck the most.
And on a random side note, it is really hard to tell someone who knows nothing about Jiu-jitsu a story about jiu-jitsu. I tried to tell a friend about my hole in the wall incident, and the response was basically this...
" ...... .... I have no idea what you just said."
