What a crazy day!

I had a good class at the beach this morning. Everybody did a really good job and busted their butts. Then I went to the gym to do my training. I taught Monday nights class clean and jerks, which I haven't done in ages. They felt good so that is what I'm going to focus on for the next few weeks. As I did those I saw the Brazilians teaching a class. When they were finished I grabbed them and we got our kettlebell on.

After the kettlebell session they asked me if I was free at noon and if I wanted to take a BJJ class. It was nice to be a student and absorb information. Jiu Jitsu is a technical art that really makes you think. Being a newbie is great, I'm really looking forward to learning these skills.

On teaching them kettlebells it is very different. Fabio's English is pretty good his wife has a tougher time with it though. This will help me teach down the road. When you can't use your normal teaching style you have to be more creative. The good thing about kettlebells is that you can teach it without hardly any words.
