Krav L.A. Day - 5

5 days down how many to go? What day is it? I’m not sure anymore. Today was pretty good actually. I think I had a bit of a fun. The morning was full of sweating and reviewing and working on techniques we have been working on all week. It’s been raining here (I think I brought the PDX rain down with me) and so the gym this morning was super humid. After working out in the same area for a while the floor gets so wet it looks like I peed on it. In fact I think I probably could and no one would notice. I’m sure glad I did laundry last night because I will probably use all the extra clothes I can. On a side note, yesterday it was ‘raining’ here but really it was just overcast with the slightest drizzle. The temp was about 70 degrees. Quite pleasant actually. I nearly LoL’d at all the umbrellas that were out during the lunch break! This rain was more like a mist and people were freaking out about how wet it was. Anyways, back on the krav subject.

We all got to see a different side to our instructor. He said that he is a laid back dude and he really is. He was joking around a lot more, and having a jolly good time with the other instructor that assisted today. It was fun and made us forget that we were in Phase and that they constantly make us sweat buckets. If you are a constant reader of my blog (and you should be) you’ll recall that back in January that I was told that I shouldn’t say ‘douche’ when striking bad guys. I’ve done a good job of eliminating the douching but instead I’ve adopted other noises. I can’t spell them or type them here, they only come out when I’m attacking someone. Today our instructor caught on to my little noises and I saw a wide grin spread across his face as he watched me pummel my partner. I glanced over and he was grabbing the other instructor to come over and ‘listen’ to me as I threw punches. The other instructor LOVED it too. I’m sure they were laughing AT me, but that’s ok. My instructor back home said they would eat me alive if I went down there saying ‘douche, pow, bang’, but apparently it made me stand out in a somewhat good way.

The rest of the day was full of mock teaching and a lecture and we’re all just frantically trying to take it all in. Lots of studying and reviewing to do…tomorrow night.

until next time!

    Man, I cannot afford to slack even one day by not hitting up this blog. Just look what happens when I do.
    I soooo completely get behind. Haha
    Yeah, next time I come up, I’m afraid I am going to have to hear some of those bizarre soounds you speak of. hahahaha….
