My first nap...

Shama, a purple, put me to sleep tonight in class. My first! We were doing guard passing drills, and I really didn't think her choke had me in danger. I was working on my stuff, and felt a little lightheaded, but didn't think anything of it. Then I noticed she had this really weird look on her face-- I asked her if she was okay, and she asked me if I was okay! Later in class she told me I'd started snoring, or gurgling... lol...

Today was pretty tiring. Class this morning was good, but my rib is still bugging me so I didn't roll, just flowed some takedown stuff with Kirk who also has a hurt rib. Then I did Robert's crossfit class, then 25 min of no-gi with Tom... then tonight's class. I got home around 8:30, folded laundry, washed dishes, and made dinner... 3 veggie tamales and a big spinach salad. I also made a cinnamon crumb cake for class tomorrow morning.

Off to bed. zzzzzzz.....

my first nap occurred 5 MONTHS AGO while i was a 3 stripe purple. i guess its a rite of passage. i had no idea what happened when i woke up. giberson let a white belt start w/ a fully locked rear naked choke, with his hooks in... all i know is when i woke up, i started yelling at giberson to say GO because this choke felt tight. little did i know i was laying on my back staring up at christie who was standing over me and laughing. it can happen to anyone!

i haven't had that experience yet, but would want to. my purple belt training partner & i tried to put me to sleep, but when you're aware, it just doesn't happen. and i think he's a bit scared too, so he wasn't putting the choke on that tight. i wish to experience it too, but definitely not in a comp :)
