Monday was another big class.  James made it back in, and it was good to see him after he’s had a long hiatus.  Fortunately for us, he forgot his belt and was the first person to rock the ‘Belt of Shame’, modeled here by Scott Yamamoto, a brown belt at our school.

And it’s an A5, so it hangs almost to the mat on most guys. Don’t forget your belts!

We also had a new guy, Alex, drop in for an introductory class.  Seemed to be a nice kid.  Another one that seems pretty athletic and I get the impression that he’s a friend of Kenji’s, which is a pretty good indication to me that he’s a good guy.  Kenji has a great attitude, is never negative and works hard.

Overall, all of the white belts are learning fast, which makes being old and tired… tiring.

We did a lot of sparring on Monday, and following class I was wiped out.  I overdid it somewhat and it was a good 20 minutes before the nausea abated and I was able to drive home.  It’s been a while since I’ve felt that bad.

I switched up my multi-vitamin on Monday, and I think that had something to do with it.  We’ll see tonight at class.
