Boxers vs. Lone Grappler

Due to the insanely cold weather (30 degrees! When you live in Florida, that's pretty much the equivalent of -30 degrees) our younger barnjitsukas did not attend class. Those of us who are really hard core (a.k.a. stupid) put on sweatshirts under our gis and headed out to the barn. Since it was old people's night, we decided to do something a little out of the ordinary...

Boxer(s) vs. Grappler!!!

This was one of my favorite things that we used to do at Summerlin. I know very little when it comes to striking, but it's still fun. My friend Phil wanted to practice defending strikes and so he had us gals take turns trying to punch him. We did some stand up and some with us punching him on the ground. No takedowns because our mats suck and we are sissies.

We were really just messing around most of the time, but it got intense for short spurts. Here are some pictures from the night!

The Weigh In: (Ok. There wasn't an actual scale there. And we didn't really have weight classes. We just wanted to do the whole staring each other down thing).

Phil and Steph
Kara and Steph
Me and Steph

Some Fighting: (My phone camera really sucks. Sorry.)

Us Being...Us:
This is me freezing.
These are my friends riding the short bus.

We win awards for awesome. Or a general lack there of. Which ever.


So much fun in the freezing cold.

I don't even know what is wrong with my face in that picture with Kara punching me... So wrong. LOL

We must do this again. Perphaps next time the three of us interlock. LOL
