Class was great yesterday. I got lots of time rolling with Bill, which is scary. He thoroughly kicked my butt. But it was pretty fun. I also had a good roll with Dr. Sean, who was beating himself up a little. Sean went up to the Gracie Barra inter-club tune up and didn’t perform up to his exceedingly high personal standards. I wish I had a little more of Sean’s competitive spirit.
Was wiped out by the time I went a long round with Ethan, who’s guard is getting pretty scary. Then I finished up with a good 10 or 12 minutes with a white belt who’s crosstraining in Judo. Very cool, although I’m not sure quite what to make of him. He’s a very nice guy, never complains and doesn’t talk much. But he’s just so… passive. Sure, I understand that BJJ isn’t about strength, but there’s a certain amount of… what? Commitment? Something… aggression? I don’t know. Just haven’t quite figured him out yet.
On the mustache front, I’m five days behind the rest of the pack, but it’s starting to come in. With my red facial hair, it’s going to be a good week or so before my magnificent mustache begins looking totally awesome.
