so after a break of a few months due to a crappy budget and no health insurance when i changed employmers, i have finally made it back to training. during the break i was able to attend some saturday open mats, but last night was the first time in months that i was able to break out the gi. as i stuffed the gi into my sportsbag, i paused a moment... felt the crisp, firmness of it... and just for kicks took sniff... not sure why i smelled it, check if it smelled clean? just for kicks? or to remind myself of what i gi smells like??? well anyways, i took that sniff and all kinds of flashback feelings shot through me. i got a surge of excitement and couldnt wait to get to class, put the gear on, and get some mat time. i did really well last night at this new (to me) camp. it's not as structured as the one i was attending previously but it has a very healthy enrollment with the classmates being of various levels and backgrounds. i jew jeetsoo!
