Sparring Night

The martial arts highlight of the week.

I had two easy matches, two difficult matches against second-degree black belts, and one against my son, who wins trophies at this stuff. 

Of course, this wasn't point sparring. This was continuous sparring, where each round lasts 15-20 minutes without breaks.

I was drenched and exhausted at the end of it, but I felt good about how it went.

And, as aways, there was pizza to enjoy afterward.

Little brought glazed cake pops we made today with his new cake pop device.  Savageman and the other guys watched college football.  The kids made their weekly pilgrimage to the Big Lots and generally loitered outside, riding around on their ripsticks and other skateboard-type devices and showing off for each other.

There was much laughter as always, and we closed the place as always.

Good times.
