Advanced class = rocking

March 15, 2011

Trick sparring, hards sparring, advanced breathing form, two-man attacks. Advanced class is rocking and I am loving it.

It’s also hard. Sparring, I find myself mostly trying not to get my head knocked off. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not bitching at all, I love it – it’s just not what I’ve become used to, and that is good. It’s better when it’s harder. Some of the guys in the Advanced class are monsters. They’ve got 80 lbs. on me easily, and they’re fast. Trying to get past those guys’ defenses and get a good punch or kick combination in is tough. They don’t make it easy because I’m new. Neither do they haul off and paste me simply because they can – and they can. They just make me earn everything. There’s a lesson in everything. It’s hard work and I love it.

Trying to do tricks at speed is challenging and fun, and hard. When I screw up, I feel it, and it really sucks, but I don’t let it get to me – I just try to learn what I am doing wrong and move on. When I do it right and the trick works, it is a rocking feeling.
