Wow, it’s just been a crazy week for me. I spent part of the week training in Columbia with the author of Martial Arts and Rainbow Magic. We went to a boxing class and did some nice sparring, then he and I sparred for like an hour, I trained some Taiji, we worked some other techniques and then he showed me some really cool grappling moves that I’m dying to try on someone.
I’m pleased to say that my sense of timing and rhythm has not suffered too badly, given my lack of sparring partners, and my punching power has actually increased, which is also nice. It has been a busy and a stressful month, but I’m going to try to be really, really good for you guys this month with workouts and some other interesting things.
Hopefully, you guys are getting a lot stronger and learning a lot from whoever you’re training with. If any of you are ever in the Upstate of South Carolina, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can train together. I’m attempting to kick my own training up a notch, because I’m really itching to fight again. If any of our readers are martial artists, I would love to see videos of your training or fights that you may have, including boxing, kickboxing, grappling, MMA, full contact Karate or Tae Kwon Do, Judo or whatever! Anything you send in has a very real possibility of being featured in a post on the blog!
