Today was my first Brazilian Jujitsu class. Its one thing to be working on getting back into the right size clothes and it's a whole different story to get into shape. I gotta tell ya, it was unbelievably fun. The instructor was hilarious and patient. And totally landed my ass. I am sore already and I'm excited to practice what I learned with my little brother.

(who knew getting your butt kicked would be so much fun!?!?!)

I know exactly how you feel!! I started Tae Kwon Do earlier this year and when I started sparring, it was awesome.


I hope you continue having fun with yours!

I've been wanting to try boxing, but Gold's doesn't offer it. Sadness

That's cool! I would like to try a martial art... like quarterstaff or Judo.

Good for you girl! I hope you keep having fun! It's great that you have found a way to stay in shape that sounds like so much fun!

I'm SO SORE!!!

But it feels So good!

I'm starting 3 classes a week beginning the 26th (birthday present to myself)

There were a few moves that I couldn't do because my abs are so out of it from the baby. After a few weeks of this, they'll be better than before.

I've done (and taught) those - if you love to dance and want a challenge, try it! not all instructors are good, but you'll be able to tell, just by watching the class for a few minutes... (and even by seeing how many people show up for the class)

LOL....hip-hop

When we were first together, MrsWind, a shodan, thought she was bad. I told her I was going to put her on her belly on the floor, sit on her and let her up when I felt like it.
WHen I let her up, she called her Sensei and said it didn't work on him, Her Sensei laughed, and said 'hE Has no rules'
Remember that, bad guys have no rules, they are in any martial art for safety....TheWInd has no rules, you need to be like the wind

Good for you.

A friend who lives in Austin had the chance to watch me working out here at a local MMA gym and thought she'd try it out at home in Austin. She has struggled with weight for years. She has taken to it like fish to water, has shed almost 60 lbs in the past 6 months and is even competing already.

I took on 3 extra tutoring jobs to afford it. But I think it's totally worth it and trading massage with a friend for the babysitting while I'm in class. My abs are STILL sore. It's wonderful. I dont know why but I tend to enjoy male dominated activities so much more than girly stuff.

So today was my first open class. I was paired up with this guy a couple inches taller than me. I learned a few punches, then the take down, and then the grappling. The last 10 minutes were just trying to get your opponent to tap out.... My opponent was like, "Okay, go." I was like, "Today's my first class." and he was like, "Okay, you can do it this way." BAM! Or you can do it this way." BAM!! "Or even this way," BAM BAM BAM. Yeah, those BAMS are me kissing mat! There were a few awkward moments.



It was SOOOO much fun. I'm already sore.

At least he wasn't a cute guy that you were grappling with while your SO is in the same room.


That can be tough.

It sounds like you are having fun though! Is it helping to get rid of your baby weight?

Oh he was FINE. and his Gi kept falling open. But I have no SO so I'm safe on that front.

I cycle Mon/ Wed/ Fri and I'm doing BJJ Tues/ Thurs/ Sat. It's melting. (not fast enough for my tastes, but it's at least going in the right direction) I just have to watch and make sure I drink enough water. I'm finding that I'm thirst almost all the time.
