My rib is well enough to grapple, which means, NAGA is a go!
I can feel it when I take deep breaths, bend certain ways, and when I pull things with my left arm. But I can grapple with it.
I am on pace to make it to lightweight by February 13th.
I also found out that the April NAGA was cancelled, but there is a Grapplers Quest tournament that same weekend. So, I can still compete for my birthday! Woohooo!
AND - I have decided on a gi. http://www.fenomkimonos.com/ I just have to stop dumping all my extra money into competitions so I can afford one. hehe
I fall slightly out of the size range, but I love their gis, and I love their message.
I also got a second stripe last night. =) .. and for the second time, I have mixed feelings... Proud that my instructor thinks I deserve a stripe, but also undeserving and embarrassed. It is an interesting combination of emotions. lol
