Sunday regular class had 18 people sparring, 4 brown belts, 4 purple belts, with blues and whites making up the numbers – the high level guys made for really tough training! We had a quick warm up, followed by instruction from Hayakawa sensei about some effective take-downs – which took me a time or two to get the hang of!
Team picture after class – all looking surprisingly fresh considering the hour or so of sparring just undertaken! I’m taking a week off from tomorrow, and will head down to Kyushu for some (well earned I think) rest and recovery [more from work than Jiu Jitsu!] I wonder if there are any Jiu Jitsu teams down there…. 🙂
