Seven Day Slam - Day 6

Day 6: Friday - Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Day 6 of my strange seven day self-declared odyssey began poorly. I woke up with a stinking cold and a body wracked with pain and stiffness. I found it hard even to put my socks on.
It was at this stage that I began to regret my challenge - I'm no spring chicken anymore!
But I bravely soldiered on to work and then, in the evening, walked to BJJ class.
It was a good session with emphasis today on defence against single and double leg takedowns. Then we practised some sweeps as your opponent passes the guard. Nice techniques and ones that could be used immediately - as big geezer Brian happily demonstrated on me when we sparred - cheeky sod. A couple more rounds of sparring and it was time to limp home, where I sit now nursing my swollen joints and bunged up nose.
Just one more day to go...tomorrow, some Jikishin ju-jitsu training in the Church!
