I don't think I blogged about class on Monday. Josh and I showed up about 30 min before kickboxing so that we could run the loop. It's a roughly 3.4 mile run close to the Studio. It took us a little less than the 30 min. I think we ran a little more than the 3.4 miles because we went a little further down the road than usual. Anyway, about 10 minutes into Kickboxing I was thinking "oh shit, I think I shouldn't have run before class." After the initial exhaustion went by I was good though and we had a great class. I got to work on my head kicks some more.
No one showed up for the women's class on Monday and we had someone over for dinner so Josh and I left pretty quick after kickboxing finished.
On Tuesday, Noe and I were both there by 5 because Noe helps with the children's Tae Kwon Do class. While she was doing that I did 25 min on the stairclimber on level 10. I didn't think I was going to make it. Then I just lifted weights for about 20 min., until traditional class.
We worked on two different throws. I think we started off with osoto gari (I'm not sure I am putting the right names of the throws). The second throw we did was harai goshi. The harai goshi was off the failed attempt at osoto gari. My footwork is in serious need of some help. I didn't get to try that many times because the first time Noe threw me on the harai goshi technique she messed up her finger. I wasn't sure what she did but she left the mat. When she came back her finger was all swollen up. She dislocated her ring finger. This morning it was still pretty swollen but she has been icing so hopefully it won't take long to get healed up.
I did the jiujitsu class last night. We drilled butterfly position, the armbar drill where you swing back and forth, working on the hip movement, and a kimura/bump sweep sit up position. After that short warm up we started working on passing the guard. Shawn had us working on getting the posture and then going to the pass. It was good to drill some posturing because usually when working on passing the guard we always start with posture established.
I rolled with Shawn for two rounds. He tapped me about 4 times. It was fun. He is much bigger than me but he is good at letting me move around and try stuff. I am going to try another class, probably next week that is taught by a purple belt, who also does capoeira. I just want to have a good number of people to roll with. When I start working I will probably pay the fees at the other gym I tried out KCBJJ so that I can train with the black belt up there.
