Ok so that's a rather down start but I am not feeling particularly happy at the moment.
Right now the side of my face is aching quite badly and is rather swollen and a bit black because I had it punched in, that is fine by me I do martial arts, that's a problem of the territory, especially a traditional artist like me. Ditto the slash across my head on my eyebrow.
As I said this is a problem with the territory, but one of the notable things about martial arts is when someone smacks you in the face you get to smack them back. Well at least that is how the theory goes, unfortunately I am a reasonably well muscled 22 year old. Now in martial arts we train medium contact, full contact or light contact, depending on what the training is aimed to do.
In medium and full contact training I train in a group with people my size because this is the harder hitting type of sparring and I get to hit back equally with the guys who hit out at me. Now in light contact sparring the group opens up and I spar with people of varying sizes and strengths including with the females in the class, for a majority of cases this is fine, as the women in general know the meaning of light contact.
For one particular female this seems not to be the case and she goes full contact whether or not that's the actual point of the training. She also ignores the stops and resets that should be present in light contact which often leads to her getting hits in when she shouldn't really be aiming too.
So fine I am ok with full contact but the moment I try and hit back hard I get a fucking bollocking (british for being told of aggressively) from the organisations head sensei for "attacking too hard in light contact sparring" well if I start bitching and moaning about her attacks then everyone's gonna rag (laugh at/take the piss) on me for a week, so I shut up and take the tellin off, fine.
So is this where it ends, me with a bruised face and swollen lip, is this where my aggravating night ends... oh hell no.
This woman's 18 year old son wants to spar with me... and I blame the punches to the face that I don't see this coming... So I agree, and we start off light contact sparring, then he goes full contact, bears me to the ground, not cause he is strong or big or even particularly good at it, but because I am scared of hitting back cause he is a foot and a half shorter and 2/3rds my weight, and if I do fight back I am gonna get another bollockin.
So forced to the floor this little shit "accidently" knees me in the fucking face and splits my eyebrow open with the strike.
On top of this as he forced me to the floor he tore the sleeve clean off my £50 uniform.
On top of this I just get a message on MSN from my ex, and I find out she is on Sex forums now, Not sure how or why.
This isn't really her fault, I want to be her friend, she has never been mean to me, never been a bad person, which compared to how horrible I have been in the past with her is surprising and admirable.
But when I see her, or talk to her, my chest gets tight and my heart aches... it's a cliché expression but heart ache is real for me, and it's a mix of unrequited love lost, guilt, anger at loosing her, wish that I hadn't. When she is about I get a bit confused and I dunno. Whatever.
Anyway with her knocking about I am thinking about maybe leaving.
So lets see
Told off by my head instructor for nothing,
Swollen bruised face,
£50 uniform down the drain,
£300 excess on my car insurance
Minor Whiplash from car accident
Need to contact insurance company
Ex on SF making me confused and meh,
Thinking of leaving.
Yay what a week
