01/12/2015 - Open Mat | Still Injured

Class #684
Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Open Mat, Bristol, UK - 01/12/2015

Still resting my injury, so I couldn't do too much today. Good to see another regular pop down to Tuesday: that group of daytime students is increasing. I would like to eventually add in a Thursday daytime, as afternoons and mornings are the main slots available at the gym I rent space from. Unsurprisingly, the evening slots I haven't managed to snap up are already occupied by other classes. If the Tuesday or Thursday evening ever becomes free, I'll jump right on it.

On the other hand, as there are classes at Artemis BJJ five days a week, that's pretty good coverage. Saturday would be another option, as there is plenty of free time that day (mostly upstairs though, I think, as TKD is downstairs in that prime noon slot).

I'm hoping to get back into normal training soon, but I may need to leave it until next week to be sure. It would also be nice to go back to kettlebells, as the injury has stopped me popping along for two weeks. I'm up to four classes now, I think: excellent instruction so far from the MoveStrong team. :)


  1. Any more evening classes or a Saturday would only help my attendance! Then I could pretty much guarantee 2-3 a week from the new year :)

    1. Must have forgotten to publish this comment, it was sitting in there when I just looked. But yeah, it will be awesome to see you back on the mats: hopefully you'll be able to make it back soon. :)
