Martial Artist

I am reminded all of a sudden that the words 'low contact' before the word 'sparring' doesn't really make that big of a difference when the bruises show up later. In fact, if I'd had gear on I probably wouldn't have so many bruises now, would I?

My favorite part of this morning's session was when Master D told us to sit down and listen to our breathing (after 2 rounds of sparring), went over to where Jack was sitting and said, "Jack, I want to tell you something about your mother. She is an awesome martial artist and she could totally kick your ass, she doesn't because she doesn't want to, not because she can't. Never forget that."

Probably not appropriate to say to a 6 year old but nice to hear anyway.
