Ouch! We did some sparring, today... I did, anyway - Lovely worked on some techniques and skills.
Sensei said that he was well-impressed with my movement, and my jab. However, we were doing some tag bouts, and I came up against a Brown Belt, and I just couldn't work his pattern out. Or rather, I worked his pattern out, but didn't have anything to counter him with. I took several kicks to the ribs, and if I can breathe properly tomorrow, then I shall be pleased!
