Mon 7-19: jump rope/pushups/situps, then kick shield drills, then partner pad work. I had a heavy handed, heavy footed partner wherein I just wanted to do my best to be a worthy padholder. He was very patient and helpful, and I hope didn't go light on me, although he did pull his punches a little bit.
Tue: Shotokan, then kata class. (goshinjitsu)
Wed: MMA. It was all ground. We drilled about 5 guard breaks and 4 mount escapes. I don't know the names for any of them, b/c our teacher never tells us. Suffice it to say that they were all simple and effective, and I wish we drilled them more often.
Thur: Judo. The usual warmup and uchikomi, then we drilled morote seioi nage and tae o toshi. LOVED. After class I drilled the throw I'm bad at, ippon seioi nage, and the techniques I love (osoto gari, de ashi barai) with another white belt who's probably going to test at the same time as me, next month. I've hardly been at my running gym, however (the one with A/C). I might have to miss some classes at my dojo so I can run more regularly.
Sat: This was the MMA standup cardio that I was looking for on Wednesday. For the first time in memory, the class was all women and we were talking away through the jump rope (probably 5 or 6 3-4 min intervals) situps, planks, pushups, mad bag drills, and kick shield drills. My legs hurt like a mofo now, but it was so much fun. Judo is in a different part of the same large room, and I could see they were doing exactly the same thing we did on Thursday. I always need to work on everything I'm doing in judo, but I needed the standup cardio badly.
