09:44 pm - my life as a wrestler week 2
well, we didn't get to take pictures for the website this week. Should be doing it next week. I did however do better protecting my neck on the bumps this week though. I feel much better than after last week. Could still do better, I think people think I am hitting my head a lot harder than I really am. And really, its not like I keep anything all that important up there.

Learned to take an give an armdrag today. (most of the class had already learned to take one, but they didn't want me doing one my first week, so I had to learn both this week). Not so bad, since I already know how to do an armdrag. The trick is I need to learn to take it easier. My form is still a little martial artish, and I'm likely to yank somones arm off rather than throw them. Will have to work on that. As cool as Tenacious Z is, I expect other wrestler will frown upon me amputating them in the ring. Other than that, things went ok. Still a lot to learn, but I think I am coming along well.

New moves I learned today: Kippup, Rolling Kippup(both technically last week, but I sucked at them then... didn't learn them til today, arm drag. 7 down, 994 to go.

My knee does hurt though. The tragedy of being old... ah well... pain is how you know you're alive.

actually I am, while I was at CMU, I studied Shorin Ryu, Tung Su Do, Ken Jutsu and Aiki Jujutsu. So in a way, I am putting my education to good use. So nyah! :-P

Go forth young jedi...

So when you are up there being interviewed for some wrestling thing, I'd better get thanked.

If for no other reason than being part of the CMU education.

Alan at The Climbing Wall used to say that pain is the weakness leaving your body.

yeah... that's a good way to look at it. On this isn't the kind of pain that comes from not being able to lift something, or pull yourself up the side of a wall. This is the kind of pain that comes from being tossed on your back and head repeatedly. Still... I guess the point is that I'll toughen up sooner or later.
