On Friday, we had a really good workout. Only three people were there, but we all left drenched in sweat and smiling.
We spent the last 40 minutes playing a “monkey in the middle” sparring game. One of us would be in the middle while the other two took turns attacking. We used simple attacks so the guy in the middle could work on counterattacks and timing. We rotated among the three of us – about three minutes each in the middle and then switched.
It was exhausting, but really rewarding. Even though we were tired, by the end, our counterattacks – whether kicks or punches had really improved.
I look forward to more kumite and timing practice this coming week.
