Don't worry about the painted logo on the mat. It is only paint after all and can be touched up!
Gumby...HA I like it. Little does Al know that he now has a new nickname.
Thanks also to Steve for joining us. Joe has done a fine job teaching you grappling. Now with some Nihon Jujitsu and those three throws to practice we at the BUKA have a way to go to catch up.
Mike, please thank all of your students who came over and let us grapple with them. We appreciate the efforts and the courtesy that you and your studnets had with us.
It was great to work out with Rich again. BTW Rich and I worked out togther at Joe and Josh's seminar at summercamp last year. Little did I know how experienced a grappler I was working with until we decided to randori on my suggestion. It took Rich about 30 seconds to get me into an arm lock. I am sure that my sarcasm was lost on you when I said " I got the easy one" while practicing with Rich.
Eugene and I will remember our randori also.
Great job Mike and all his students.
I will bring as many students (and instructors) as I can to your dojo when you host it next time.
Stay tuned for the pictures. I will send them to GEM today.
