On Tues. night I went to my friend D's house. We did some really light work. We played a game that was really awesome. Basically, each of us was only allowed to do one movement at a time. Each movement could consist of a couple of steps but you basically could only go from one position to the next. It was so cool. My brain hurt after we got done with that. It was insane to see how few concepts and moves I know. This was a tremendous exercise to highlight areas that I can work on immediately and probably make some significant progress.
During the game, I accidently made some shit up. It was hilarious. I had only glanced at the most recent graciemag. We got into a position similar to one I "remembered" seeing in the magazine, I got all excited. I said "ohhh this is just like what I just saw in the magazine." Then I proceeded to do a choke. A little while later D said, oh this is that position, how did that choke go again. I basically couldn't recreate it. I said it's in the new graciemag, he gave me a very confused look because he didn't recall seeing it in there. When he came back with the mag I showed him the choke I thought I did. Apparently I had almost none of the steps the same. LOL - I'm still such a beginner.
