“Well… Thanks for entering.”

Today was the Jiu Jitsu comp... I stayed the whole day which was from 10 am till about 5:45 pm as I was supposed to be the "first aid lady." ....Luckily only one injury to speak of - as in one injury actually requiring special attention and a trip to the hospital (ended up being… Continue reading “Well… Thanks for entering.”

Testicular Fortitude

Maja used to do martial arts as a child and teen. I used to be so jealous of her fitness level and strength. I remember her showing off one day at school - she climbed atop the tables in the hall doing push ups on her fists... the catch being that she was going them… Continue reading Testicular Fortitude

Trial By Fire

I was inadequately prepared, my stamina that had been increasing a couple months ago had started decreasing again over the past month with the inability to train as much due to schedules. Coupled with sickness earlier in the week... all goddamn excuses, I know. But needless to say, BJJ training today was rough on me.… Continue reading Trial By Fire

Work, Sleep, and Jiu Jitsu

I don't know how this happened. My blog used to be all memories, relationships, and themes regarding mostly domestic abuse and depression. Now... Fitness? Kickboxing? MMA? BJJ? Who the fuck would have thought? It's veering in a way I wouldn't have dreamed it would go when I started this blog. I mean... I am so… Continue reading Work, Sleep, and Jiu Jitsu

Bad Girls wear Bad Boy

So who knew? I’m sure a lot of people did… But I was oblivious. Not really that unusual for me I guess, haha. But now that I have started in the various fighting sports I’m doing, I have needed to get various items of equipment and clothing to utilize day to day obviously. So I… Continue reading Bad Girls wear Bad Boy

Hanging with the boys

Ha. Coach read my last post and made a comment to me about having made the right decision to have a woman take over running the female-only class – because he can’t /doesn’t want to be involved with girl talk. LOL I told him if he needs to cover the class another time I promised… Continue reading Hanging with the boys

War Wounds

After training today, the girls present sat in a circle on the mat as we stretched and chatted. I showed them a sizeable bruise on my knee that I had earned the Saturday before that still had some dark indigo emanating from it... Something I had tried to take pictures of to show a couple… Continue reading War Wounds

Fight Like a F**cking Viking!

My God, I’ve spent too much money this week. I received my tax return last week and while I put most of it away, I did set aside a certain amount as spending money. I wanted to clean out my closets and get some new clothes – especially workout clothes as I have been spending… Continue reading Fight Like a F**cking Viking!

He got me against a wall

This weekend at Jiu Jitsu training, we had a new lady start. As we were talking she said something I've heard before - she imparted the advice her boyfriend had given her. He said that all fights eventually get taken to the ground, so it would be a benefit for her to do Jiu Jitsu… Continue reading He got me against a wall

Woefully Tattoo-less/Rock Tape

Screw it. I write when I relax and I might have even a little idea of something to write... And today I had an early day off of work and extra time on my hands without children. My day started off a little iffy... I discovered when I got to work that I had put… Continue reading Woefully Tattoo-less/Rock Tape

Well Fit

I dunno why I haven't thought to mention this to Justin before... Ha, he may have seen it on my FB... But I dunno that he gets on enough to notice every post I write... so who knows... But Justin posted something about UFC yesterday and I thought "Huh, I don't think I mentioned to… Continue reading Well Fit

Buzzkill

Guh. I was in such a good mood this week and now it's Friday evening and I am feeling so bleh. I wonder if it's partially because I haven't gone and exhausted yet pumped myself up with a gym class the past two evenings? I worked out Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights; a mixture of… Continue reading Buzzkill

Oh, I’m gonna be sore tomorrow

I tell you what, that kick boxing class is no joke. I feel awesome though... except the aching muscles that I'm sure will be stiff and all the more achy in the AM. Just took some magnesium and had a bit of a soak so hopefully that will stave off the worst of it -… Continue reading Oh, I’m gonna be sore tomorrow

HUAH! Look at these muscles!

I took my first actual jiu jitsu class last night – finally – my goodness, it wore me out. It was fun though and I know I need to stick with it. I really need to get fit again. I could barely do a sit up without having to grab my legs to pull myself… Continue reading HUAH! Look at these muscles!

Small Mercies in Self Defence

How do I even start? My daughter is taking a martial arts class this year; she goes three times a week. We started her in it primarily because she was dealing with some bullies last year at school and we wanted her to build some confidence and learn some skills to defend herself if need… Continue reading Small Mercies in Self Defence

Women’s Self-Defense

As promised, I am here to tell you all how the women's self-defense course went that I planned to go to this past Friday. Back in August, the course I went to was an introduction to the psychology of violence coupled with learning some moves that would be used at the beginning of an altercation… Continue reading Women’s Self-Defense
