For the past few months, I’ve been training at the downtown San Jose Shamrock MMA school a few times a week. It’s a lot more interesting than training Muy Thai at Fairtex was. I think it’s mainly due to the complexity of MMA and the way that Fairtex was set up; it just didn’t mesh with my training style. I’ve combined that training with some Yoga classes and some strengthening and conditioning work from Lori at Body Architecture.
Last weekend, I took my first exam for my white shirt. It brought back a lot of memories from middle school karate testing. Now, like then, I passed qutie easily. I give a lot of credit to our instructor Jesse, who prepared us pretty well.
If anyone is interested in doing some training, come on down to the San Jose Athletic Club on Tuesday/Thursday nights, we’re always happy to work out with new people.
