Sparring is fun!!

Level Test Survivors!
My last blog post I talked about the Krav Maga level test I had taken, and since then I've found out I passed the test. I was pretty confident that I had passed, but you know how that goes - you don't know for sure until you know.

So this week I went to my first L2 class, equipped with my new shin guards and 16oz gloves wondering how often they would be used. Right damn now was the answer. We warmed up by sparring about 30-40% behind the punches and kicks, did some other calisthenics, stretched, then sparred and practiced lots of defenses that I had never done before. It was great! At the end, we sparred with different people. You quickly realize the speed/quickness difference between a small young guy and a big older guy. I got caught in the nose a couple times, but delivered some good shots of my own, including a couple really nice leg kicks. The adrenaline rush of this last little bit was definitely noticeable! I can't wait for the next class.

It's been a long week, but not in a bad way! Lots going on, so this blog which is really just my workout log hasn't been updated in a long ass time. So, to keep it short and simple and allow me to get back to work, that's it...I'll leave you with this link:
