When I started at Fabio's there was one other girl, and Allie and I were the only girls at Summerlin.
Now, counting Allie and I there are eight. One of our blue belts, Salsa John, always brought his girlfriend to class. Her name is Erica, and she finally started training this week! I am so excited! I really get the feeling she will pick it up VERY quickly. She is in very good shape, and has been watching us grapple for a long time, so she had the general idea her very first grapple. If I hadn't known it was her first grapple, I wouldn't have believed her. She also happens to be almost my exact same size. She about an inch shorter then I and around my same weight. I am really excited to have a similar sized training partner, esp since I already know her fairly well, and we get along. Though I must say, it is a little annoying to finally get a taste of my own medicine. Her legs are super long too. She feels like she is all legs sometimes. lol
And we may be getting another girl soon. Tony's girlfriend came to class last night, and I talked to her about it, and she said she is going to try it out next time she comes to class. She on the other hand weighs maaaybe 80 pounds... hehe It will be good partner for for Joyce though. Joyce is also super tiny.. and it's not like I mind the tiny girls either. Small people do things big people do not... so it is always fun. ..I just feel like a huge oaf when I grapple them.
I am really excited to have so many girls to train with. ... Though, not to take anything way from the guys... I love them all too. hehe
