Krav maga 1
- Hammer punch 3
- Choke from behind
The same crazy exhausting shit! I was glad to be able to do a handstand (well, once) and to sprint up the hill when we ran around the block. Carrying someone on my back was surprisingly hard. And I’m actually writing this two days later, and my arms and upper back are still freaking sore.
I went to Krav 1 and KO Bag, but for the life of me, I can’t remember what we did in Krav 1 aside from groin kicks (I’m writing this a week later). At least I went to class!

Yay, I finally went to krav 2! You know how obvious it is that I don’t go? Two classmates were like, “Hey, you’re here!”
Going to krav 2 on Saturday means I don’t have to go on Sunday. Double yay!
In the past month – really since I passed my yellow belt test – I’ve fallen out of the habit of going to krav maga regularly and, consequently, of posting here.
Here’s a summary of my classes since my last post. (Unfortunately I didn’t jot down exactly what we did.)
I haven’t been going to krav maga 2 as much as I should. Of course it’s harder and out of my comfort zone so I’m resistant. My goal this weekend is to go on both Saturday and Sunday, or at least one of those days.
While I was in New Jersey last week, I showed my friend ES some of my krav maga moves. She was kind of impressed by the defense combos, my round kick, and my getting up the krav maga way.
It was interesting to hear a non-KM person’s perception. I’m so used to being average or below-average, compared to all my classmates.
- Straight punches
- Round kicks
- Front kicks
- Hammer punches
Skipped krav 1 at 11. My excuse was that I was up until two AM and didn’t get up until 9. At least I ran three miles afterward.
