I got a new gear bag today. I don’t particularly like it, even though it is red. It’s too big and it doesn’t have any additional small pockets. The chief recommendation it has going for it is it doesn’t smell like cat pee.
We’ve been sparring lately in class. I’m trying to be more adventurous in my sparring, extending my techniques more. I’ve even thrown offensive spinning jumping side kicks. Haven’t landed any (think slo pitch, not fastball). I’ve been getting some good positive feedback, too. I really have no idea what I do when I spar, but I’m told my timing is pretty good. I just look for openings.
