What have I gotten myself into?

Tried out a BJJ class at the locat SBG tonight. A couple friends of mine have been working out there for several years and have been bugging me recently to come check it out ever since I started doin krotty a few months ago.

Here's a quick rundown of the activities :

10 min - running
5 min - light rolling, no sub
5 min - light rolling with sub
10 min - sitting and watching everyone else
10 min - dry heaving in bathroom
10 min - lying down on couch
10 min - dry heaving in bathroom
15 min - watching everyone else

What I learned :

"light rolling, no sub" means don't go for a choke, you dumbass
"go at your own speed" means take a break before you've gone too far and you start puking

Going to check out their Muay Thai class on Wednesday.

How Do Yoko Giri

Did some tamishigiri in sword class last night. Cut 5 makiwara, I seem to do better the less I think about it. I really need my own shinken so I can get in the backyard and do some cutting on my own time. I'll never get anywhere cutting 4 or 5 every 3 months.

Points to remember :

* The lower the target, the sharper the cutting angle
* Follow through, I try to stop too early and lose power before I'm done cutting
