CC is sick, so he postponed today’s class till Wednesday night.
I went to the gym and worked on all the forms that are not in the usual Tuesday warm-up.
I’m trying to integrate some of the foot-switches into Bung Bo- the ones that DD’s students do but CC’s don’t, so I didn’t learn them when I learned the form. They’re not that difficult, it’s just a matter of not losing my place in the flow while I’m focusing on inserting them. The first two times I tried it, I proceeded to skip over a big chunk of the form.
Leopard Three is kick-ass, if I do say so myself….
Also did all the tai chi forms, 3 Step Arrow frag (flow is getting better), Wood Monkey (flow is getting somewhat better… I really think this is going to turn out to be one of my strongest forms once I get more practice in…. as long as they are not making me do the insane sound effects- gads!) and Hurricane Hands. I actually think working on HH is helping Leopard Three evolve… I see a lot of parallel between Snake and Leopard. Leopard is like the love child of Tiger and Snake!
I took the ice packs and tried taking a break to ice my knees at the hour mark. It helped a bit, but not enough. In order to ice long enough to be worth it, I think the break would have to be long enough for the rest of my muscles to get stiff and cold again.
Back to BJJ tomorrow. I haven’t been in BJJ class for a week and a half! I really wish I hadn’t been such a slacker and flaked on Friday.
I don’t know what I’m going to do about my on-rotation Monday nights. I don’t want to cut down my number of classes, but **Rickson Gracie** I’m tired when that alarm rings Monday at 4:30pm to get up and get ready for class. And I can only stay for an hour, missing all the actual rolling, because I have to rush home and shower before work. Hardly seems practical… but then again, every little bit helps. Undecided…..
