Today was a hectic day, and by the end of it I wasn’t feeling very motivated. So I decided to leave the sticks in the bag and make it more interesting and challenging by using the knives in my practice. It was an opportunity to slow things down and study how the same ideas work with different weapons, work on edge awareness, and so on. That was a lot of fun, and the last two sets allowed me to expand on what I’ve been learning in the Contradas and play with them with different weapons as well. The same ideas carryover just fine so far. Experimentation is good!

6/11

Roadwork:
1. AM Run: 1.14 easy mile with Jean
Fun little complex (no rest between rounds, just go for it and have fun):

2. Launch the kettlebell +
3. Quick sprint burst to where the KB landed.
Rounds: 6 @ 16 kg

1. Dirty Dozen with diamond footwork
2. #8 to fake outside umbrella to reverse #2 R, reverse #1 L, reverse #1 R with Kukri and dagger: 100 strikes
3. Carenza with the Kukri and dagger: 00:15:00
Jiu Jitsu Class:
1. 01:00:00 on my lunch break! Great to be back
Mobility:
1. SSDD

Of note:

I am 194 pounds. This is the lightest I e been since the twins were born.

Also, of note- I rolled today. 5 rounds with 5 different training partners. I haven’t rolled since the kids were born so that’s what, 3 years?

...I intended to do more rounds of the swings with the throw and sprint but the KB was leaving holes in my yard. I need to find a better place to do those because they’re fun.

Kali is feeling good. I’m integrating what I’m learning in the Contradas into my own game, and it’s working out well. Getting the hang of transitioning at will from one angle to the other at-will, and body movement and footwork with it are improving.

Speaking of fun- I went back to Jiu Jitsu today. Lafayette is doing well Covid-19wise, I’ve been following the data closely. Here’s to praying I didn’t make a stupid decision. Boy oh boy it certainly is good to be back!

That little complex is difficult to do right after running 3.5 miles in the sun and humidity, sheesh! And I didn’t push it because I have BJJ twice this week and that’s a big enough addition. Want to make sure I have enough in the tank.
