I can barely make a fist. Typing feels weird. My finger hurts if i bend it this way. But not that way.

I embeded a video by Jiu-Jitsu Youtuber, Chewjitsu, who stresses that you can actually let go of your grip and re-grip. My finger joints look like swollen nubs right now.

We’ve been drilling attacks in class. I might as well study some more attack sequences.

White Belt Vlogs

I have a black eye. I have a new sense of what resiliencey means and had my self-assessment meter re-callibrated.
