I traveled to training with a bit of a bad attitude. I was still pissed off from getting kneed in the eye on Friday and receiving no apology from the person who did it. Basically, I felt annoyed that I roll to not hurt people while some of them go balls out to hurt me, knees and elbows flying. So, I decided to take no more shit and grind my opponent into the mat at any given chance. The thing is, I am such a nice guy, that by the end of the night I didn't feel like doing that especially to people I benefit from rolling with and I know they are not targeting me, like Dmitri and Yoshida-san, guys who have an interest in me getting better along with them. This is a super important trait to have in team mates.
