REGULARLY SCHEDULED PROGRAMMING
Last night we had an MMA-based boxing class. For many of us, myself included, it was pretty new territory so we started out slow. Very light contact, as some people didn't have MMA gloves - as well as limited drills: maintaining the mount and some basic defense.
I just wanted to learn it - I had no idea how fun it was going to be! Using strikes to set up positions and submissions opens up a whole new field of possibilities. It's a pretty exciting time right now, as it also freshens up BJJ classes (not that they needed it), helping me to be aware of my options, even if they're not allowed.
Very cool stuff. I can't wait for Wednesday night!
