My buddy Jackie and I decided to get together this past Sunday to work on techniques, exchange ideas, and spar. I was excited, because we are the same size and level, however we rarely get to train with each other. This weekend was a Korean holiday, so we both expected the gym to be pretty dead.
Imagine our surprise when three more purple belts ended up showing up to the gym along with a few whites, a brown belt, and one of our black belts who lives in Seoul!
I sparred for several hours, and it was a good feeling getting my butt kicked. I have to say it was a great atmosphere with everyone pushing each other and having fun.
Also, I can't say enough good things about Young-ahm. The guy is a class act all the way, and he is definitely someone I look up to. I hope that someday my level of BJJ can come even remotely close to his.
