Back to training
Thanks, Aparna, for the kind words. I really appreciate them and congrats again on your new job!
As much as I didn’t want to…I trained tonight. My husband taught class and we drilled De la Riva sweeps. A friend of ours who is a brown belt also came and trained. He gave me some good pointers but I noticed that I was very self-conscious rolling with him watching. It was a good night of training and I’m glad I went (as I usually am).
I thought for the fun of it I would post videos from my first ever BJJ tournament. This was back in May 2011 right after I started this blog. The video is a little painful to watch. For the better part of the match, I am just lying there. I have two videos from two different perspectives. You’ll know which one was my husband’s because several times he’s recording the ground rather than the actual match. 😉 *haha* I still haven’t had a chance to see the videos from my matches this past weekend and I’m looking forward to seeing them (even if they’re bad). I hope that at least I’ll be able to see some differences from my first match.
