Winding Up Then Winding Down
Last Week of the Grind
Then We Head Home
So, we are getting into the last week of training for the Mundials and the workouts have changed a bit.
We are down from 3-4/day to 2 a day. One interesting development is that instead of being allowed to stroll in 10-15 minutes late, anyone who is late this week is not allowed to train. Master Lloyd said this was because if you are late to your match at the Mundials, what happens? You get disqualified. Interesting idea.
Another development is the workouts have shifted in schedule. Instead of 10AM, 4:30PM and 8:30PM, our workouts are now at 10AM and 5PM. I think this is to give the guys a chance to start acclimating to the time change.
Most of our training this week has been live sparring. Drilling is now relegated to warm ups only and the workouts themselves are a bit shorter overall. The intensity has not dropped, though. Everyone has the same mindset that their weapons are as sharp as they are going to be for the Mundials, now it’s time to make sure your weight is right and your conditioning stays strong.
While this week is not over yet, I am already starting to miss the time here. All of the guys have great personalities and interesting quirks that make them fun to be around. I hope I will have a chance to come back and visit/train soon!
Take care! See you soon
