Weekend P90X, Zumba, Yoga & Self Defense

Highlight of my weekend doing this move on Saturday afternoon.

If you have NEVER taken a self defense course I recommend it! You just never know what you may encounter and plus its just down right fun.

Ok, so I have a few bruises, I still took down a 220lb over 6 foot tall man from a rape position - GO T.

Saturday afternoon I got to spar 2 times with the "abductor", first time he got me in the trunk of his car *sigh I gave a good fight. The second time, I got him good and got a way.

This is why I say you should take this course! 90% of the time if they get you in the car its game over, so no matter what stomp and kick and yell till you can get away.

You may get cut, you may get hurt, but you will be alive.

I am counting this course as my Kenpo workout. Our warm up and routine before being let loose was many front kicks, side kicks, back kicks and knee kicks.....PARADISE! Then we moved into punches, with elbows and snap punches all good stuff. I went through a full bottle of water in the first 30 minutes.

Then came the pads and mits. HELLO AGAIN PARADISE!

This is my field, this is where T. excels this is total fun to me. The trainer let me do double and really complimented me on form and power. I said "Aww shucks I teach kickboxing and got to spar with an MMA fighter." Big giggles

As a matter of fact I think he really enjoyed that because it gave him another opponent he was not expecting. Then I of course I told him I was a trainer, and thanked him for a great workout.

I did my Zumba on Saturday morning, followed by an hour of Hatha Yoga Class then the Self Defense Course.
Sunday, I rested and enjoyed my "battle wounds". Had a very bad nutrional weekend, not enough cals and lots of cookies. *sigh darn school charity sales.

Last night went to a church prophecy event, lots of praise and worship to glorify God.
