Hi Mappers. So I used to have a log for about 5 minutes under my old username (Sunfish), but that was a while ago, so I want to start a new one. This will help to motivate me, and hopefully MAPers will have suggestions. I'll try to come up with some long term goals to add here, but right now my main focus is getting exercise, learning some MA, and having fun. So anyways, to start this off... Tonight (Tuesday) - I did about 50 minutes of Muay Thai. A quick warm up, jogging and shadow boxing. Then some pad work, basically focusing on whatever the striker felt they wanted to work on. I ended up partnered with one of the really great students there who was able to give me some good feedback. Then we did a ladder drill - 10 punches, 1 round kick - then 9 punches, 2 round kicks, etc. down to 1 punch and 10 round kicks - all on same side leg. Then a few minutes more strikers choice pad work, then the same ladder drill on the other side. Then maybe 15 minutes of very light sparring with a couple of partners. It was a short class (usually I go to ones that are 75 minutes), no conditioning, and it was over before I knew it - which is good, because then I did approx 60 minutes of BJJ. I haven't done much BJJ, and it has been several months since I have done any - so basically I'm a real noob. We did a lot of neck exercises, front and back bridges, and some drill where we went from a wide high pushup position to a sit out position on one side, and then walked over to the original position, then repeated on the other side. Then we practiced doing an armbar from guard, then countering that armbar, then shifting to a triangle when your armbar attempt is countered. I am sort of OK at doing an armbar (against no resistance) from learning it before, and the counter seems do-able to me, but I am horrible at the triangle. It just seems my legs are too short. I know there is a way I can make it work, I just don't really have it now. Then we did 4 minute rounds of rolling with each person there (including the instructor - 6 total people), starting from in the guard. I tapped to a couple of armbars (one of them almost instantly from starting!), a triangle, a kimura and a few other things. I did submit the only person newer than me with a scarf hold after finally getting loose about 2 minutes of them almost guillotining me. Anyways a good time.
