friendly fighting for fun...

We sparred in thursday night's kung fu class. It was fun, I did much better than last time I sparred, especially against our 2nd degree black sash. I did a much better job of implementing our form techniques into my sparring. I still need to work on my sweeps though, my timing is still off. ohh, well, incremental improvements!

That's great! I like to see you sparring with someone who is your equal or better. I've only seen you spar with Jeremy before you had advanced so far and learned this much.

Oh, any more techniques for me to learn when you come home? Jeremy caught me the other day to keep me from tickling him and I got out. LOL It was great.

your best approach is to not get caught. hehe,

1. never meet force with force, always move with it and continue the motion.
2. never lose your secondary level of awareness.
3. you have more leverage (most times) closer to your body than away.

we can discuss these in more detail when I come home if you want.
