So, today was a great morning of training. We learned a couple of attacks fromt he side mount, which I need to go to the store and get a notebook for so I don’t forget them. Kyle, one of the guys who trains there said “I always feel like I learn something new everyday, and that I totally forgot what I learned yesterday!” I was glad to know that I’m not the only one. I feel like a total idiot sometimes. So, I’m gonna get a notebook today, and keep track of the techniques that I learn, so I can at least look back at them later and think “oh yeah, I remember that. I should give it a try today!”
Also, Prof. Adem was on the mats today. He previously injured his knee, which is the second time in about a year if I recall correctly (injured the OTHER knee last time), and he had knee surgery 2 weeks ago. 2 WEEKS AGO!!!! How freaking crazy is that? The man was back on the mat: instructing, and rolling. What an inspiration. I see things like that, and it just makes me want to train more. Every day is a breath of fresh air when you’re healthy, and able to embrace life. Looking forward to heading back to class tonight.
