Nice class this morning, with a handful of purples instructing. Sweeps from halfguard, taking the back from turtle, and beating "half guard from the back"... positional sparring with Rebecca again which was amazing (I'm 30% heavier than she is and probably 2-3" taller, but couldn't get in her collar and couldn't isolate an arm. Total empathy with my guy friends now.)

After class all I wanted to do was go back to bed. I was up pretty late last night wrapping presents and only got a few hours sleep, but I am so happy I resisted the temptation and stayed awake. I got a surprising amount done on one project in particular and look forward to getting back to it after the holiday.

Lookie what Santa's been bringing :) (The book, on Slidey's recommendation, was a special request. Thanks Aunt Linda and Uncle Art.)

I will be training tomorrow morning bright and early (and I'm sure I'll be yearning for the pillow just as much afterwards.) Merry Christmas all!

That book is very cool and so are the other two. It really helped me start picking apart some problem spots I was having. It's a great reference material to have if you like having the pictures. Theres some extras at the website too.
