I took a self-defense course in Krav Maga. It was a good class and I had fun. What I learned was that I have a mean punch. I owe that to strength training and Title Boxing. I also learned that trying to do a self-defense stance takes determination when your automatic reaction is to do a boxing stance. Don’t know the difference? I didn’t either.
Boxing is more of an up, protect, and ready stance where as the self-defense stance is an out and back off stance. I also learned that being the receiver is a little harder than I thought it would be. You had to hold the pads and allow the “Defender” to do the punching, but you also had to give them a little resistance without actually fully engaging. Coordination is key. Yea….just when I think I’m coordinated, it turns out that I’m not. Still, it was a good class and I enjoyed it. I will feel it in the morning, but it will be happening again.
As far this picture goes, it was sunset. My last one in Wyoming actually. I really kind of love how in the picture the only hint of sunset is the fact that the mountain peaks are a shade of pink as the sun rays sink down. Shining their last bit of light on the peaks of Mount Moran. Get lost in the simpleness of it all. Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.
