Good times at Fifty/50

Paul's seminar last week was pure awesomeness! As expected of course.

I was able to train twice last week before the hours at work took over again. It should be uphill from here on though. I didn't go to class on Friday but we had a new girl come in with her boyfriend to train. Then I taught class on Saturday, and we had another new girl come in (also with a b/f in tow). If they both sign up that will put us at 10 women! I'm trying to get as many on board before Val comes as possible. :) Some awesome plans are in the works for Fifty/50 in general and the women's program specifically as well so I am getting very excited!

Son Duong came up from Richmond to train on Sunday so I rolled with him for a while. He's a good blue belt and exactly my weight so I love when he comes to visit. He's one of the few people I can roll with full speed without fear of injury (and he can roll full speed with me, unlike most of the guys at our gym who although they will roll hard, always have to hold back a little so they don't accidentally out-muscle or injure me).

Training today was at 1pm due to the holiday and Brian was in so I trained with him all day. He is definitely my favorite partner at Fifty/50. He is bigger but not so much bigger that we can't both roll pretty hard. We have pretty even rolls but he'll beat me practically 90% of the time so he is super fun to roll with because I know if I can pass his guard, even if only long enough to score points, it's a big deal because he fights like hell.

It's been a great BJJ weekend!
