I had a great night on the mats. We were working "De La Riva" sweeps. Not the easiest thing for short legs, but with encouragement from coach and a good training partner we figured out how to make it work. It's exciting when things just come together. Then during rolling I had some moments of pure bliss. Not that I was a beast on the mats or anything, just an old lady holding her own with a blue belt teenager...pretty sweet feeling. I am blessed with some pretty awesome training partners and one heck of a coach.
On another note, a few more pounds and I will most likely be able to order me a new Fenom gi. If the family needs any ideas for a Christmas present for dear old Mom, this is it! Size A2 please. If you're curious, there's a link to Fenom Kimonos below. Bar none, the best fitting gi for this girl's body type and they are beautiful, exceptional quality and they can take a beating on the mats.
p.s. Julia, your gis have served me well and I am going to keep wearing them until they are completely worn out!! It just feels good to see the pants getting looser and looser. Jiu-Jiu is a fellow blogger who bequeathed me her many gis after they became too big for her. Way to go Julia! Check out her blog here. :)
