Lots of people to spar with on Monday. Teo who is a black belt turned up. I haven't seen him for ages. He still has a grip like iron which I gave up after one attempt of removal. I did see him later on slapping his forearms. I think he has a tendency to overgrip. I actually managed to sweep him with a spider guard sweep I always use. It was good to see him spar with Tete-kun and then K-sensei. I wanted to do some technique at the end with Akira but he was picking up some pointers from K-sensei because he will enter the Japan Open in 2 weeks time.
Sparring time: 6 x 6 mins = 36 minsNotable moments: Sweeping a black belt, using the shovel type sweep from side control on my instructor that Ryan Hall shows on his DVD.
