Today’s class

12 Aug

Krav maga

  • Elbow 7
  • Groin kicks (rear and front)
  • Choke from behind with push
  • Arm up
  • Violent turn
  • Elbow 7

KO Bag

  • Straight punches
  • Hooks
  • Upper cuts
  • Elbows
  • Round kicks
  • Knees
  • Footwork

Casualty: I scraped up my knuckles a little more due to my too-big gloves. But that’s no biggie. What’s more painful is the stitch in my side that I’ve had for the past four hours. I think it’s just gas. Lovely.

Today’s class

11 Aug

Krav maga

  • Bladder kick
  • Hammer punch
  • 360 defense (top only)

KO Bag

  • Straight punches
  • Hooks
  • Elbows
  • Round kicks
  • Hammer punches

Casualty: scraped up knuckles on my left hand. I wore different gloves today since my cloth ones get so sweaty, they leave sweat all over the punching bag, thus leaving a slippery surface for both me and my partner. Not good.

The gloves I wore today didn’t get sweaty, but they’re a bit too big, and so I think the they moved around and caused some friction. Do I need to wrap my hands too? Sheesh, so much boxing paraphernalia.

Today’s class

8 Aug

KO Bag

  • Straight punches
  • Hooks
  • Round kicks
  • Knees

Can you believe it? I went to an extra class! I just felt like doing something, and krav maga is too early so I went to KO Bag.

Casualties

  • My left shoulder. With my hooks, I again moved my arm only and not my whole body, and hit too hard. Ow. More tiger balm.
  • Left index finger. I have a scrape on the middle joint that opened up again. Forgot to put on a bandage before class.

Boxer Girl: 17-year old heads to the Olympics

20 Jul

Saw this on The Atlantic. Michigan native Claressa “T-Rex” Shields “is the youngest female boxer competing at the 2012 Olympics, which will feature women’s boxing for the first time in history.” Badass!
