Noe and I went up to the studio today. Our usual home for training martial arts. We did some MMA training today. Mostly we sparred. We were helping our friend get ready for a fight. She is fighting on June 4th. She fights at 135 so we are pretty similar in weight. I am walking around at about 132 right now. I think she is going to do well, she was hitting pretty hard. I got hit a few times and I was like "oh yeah, this is what it's like to get hit." I forgot.
Well, while we were there John brought up me taking a fight at 125 or 130 on the June 4th card. I told him to go ahead and put a call into the matchmaker. I guess depending on whether they have someone for me I will do it. As long as she's not some chick who's about to go pro or something. I feel like I am in good enough shape. I would just push it really hard for the next week and then do some light technical work the few days before. I have to say, I am pretty excited about not having to weigh in with a gi on.
I tried out a new jiujitsu school tonight. It is called KCBJJ. The class tonight was taught by purple belt because the usual instructor, a black belt, had a family emergency. I liked the class. It runs longer than the classes that were at East West, so we got to drill stuff for a lot longer. We worked on standing guard passes. I need to work on everything so I was excited to work on the guard passes. Plus, when you do tournys everybody seems to pull guard.
Here's a crappy pic of what my face looks like. I got a few marks on my face from the sparring with Erin at the studio and then I got my lip busted and my nose all jacked up while I was rolling tonight. I think most of the guys just aren't used to rolling with a woman, who weighs like 30 - 50 pounds less than they do.
Well you can't really see the marks on my face but they are there.
