Zombie Grappling

Yesterday afternoon, I went into class like a zombie. I haven't slept well the past few days because my son has been sick. Most of the time when I go to class tired, I end up having a really good class. Yesterday I just ended up getting leg-locked a lot.

But there is a bit of good news from the lately complainy, gloomy girl! I am realizing why I am getting ankle-locked so much and I'm starting to see it right before it happens. A few times I was able to snatch my leg back. Mostly because my friend Salsa John was going in slow motion so I could do it. :) At one point he swept me and my brain was lagging so I didn't tuck my head. He literally held me up in the air for a second so I could tuck my head. Good training partner, right there.

After class, another of my good friends at Fabio's, Thomas, was having a private lesson. He let me hang around and be his practice dummy for the lesson. Unfortunately by brain was soup and I didn't retain much. But I promised him I would write down what I remembered. And I will. Later today. :)

[An aside note, I wrote this post before I had read all the comments about leg locks on the last post. lol. This post looks different to me after reading all those comments. I meant nothing disrespectful by this post, just so you guys know!!]
