Started off as any random Saturday, but as we neared the start of class, it quickly became apparent that we had a lot of visitors. Like, a lot. And most of them were highly ranked.
Skyler ran the warm up, and then we split into groups of 5 like ranked and sized groups. Starting in headquarters, sweep/submit vs pass. 1 minute rounds. Guy on bottom does 10 in a row!
My group got conflated with another, and then the smaller guys left without telling me. So I got suck with Rob, Drake, and the like. The big boys. And I was in the barrel first.
I survived, then switched groups to something more manageable.
And then, at the end of class we lined up and Aria got promoted to her black belt. Well deserved on her part. We’re all happy for her.
