Awesome sparring tonight!
Everything’s slowing down for Christmas; I don’t know how it is elsewhere but in Australia the fight season ends around Nov/Dec and doesn’t pick up again until March. Whether it’s due to this being the hottest time of the year or because of the holiday season I can’t say, but what it means for us is that there’s little-to-non focus on fitness and conditioning and all of our sessions are purely technique-orientated.
It also means small classes; no more than 6 or 7 at each sparring for the past few weeks. It’s deadly cos a lot more individual attention is being paid to those who show up.
Tonight we did an awesome variation on shark cage sparring…winner stays on! Basically anytime someone was keeping the upper hand for 15 seconds or so, someone else would be swapped in. I only reigned for three rounds but it was still deadly! Reminded me of playing pool or SFII at the arcades when I was a kid!
