On Wednesday my back was still hurting so I decided to watch. I am glad I did. I had an opportunity to talk to a lot of the guys that work out in the boxing class before BJJ (Some of them come to Jiu-jitsu class too).Usually I just come to class, say a few hellos and then class starts, so I was able to get a different perspective on where I train.
The last time I went to class injured and just to watch I was in my first year of training. I ended up grappling in my street clothes. This time I made sure I stayed seated. I still felt that familiar pull and excitement that I felt in 2004 while watching the rolling portion of class. I just told the guy I was talking to as opposed to acting on it though.
I guess it is just like any other activity or sport that you love to do. When it’s in you, it’s in you.
