1st Day on the Job

Got up at around 2.00 PM, which is 5.00 PM your time and after a quick meditation session, headed over to the mall for a breakfast of Lebanese food and a stiff Starbucks coffee.  Mulled around the mall for some personal business and than off to hold pads for Mehdi.

Got to Kb-1 where classes were starting and after hugs and formalities were complete with my coach, it was time for war.  First I needed to score a set of CoreShorts from Mehdi before we started the evenings festivities.  I was introduced to these shorts, maybe about a month ago.  These shorts are awesome if you have hip / pelvic area complications.  Since I’ve started to develop some hip problems and I know that I was in for a rough 2 weeks, I had to invest in a pair.  I think we will get some for our own proshop (That’s a HINT Hector, if you’re reading this).

Tonight Mehdi was on the ball.  First he put on a 15 lb weighted vest.  I held pads for him, with an emphasis on boxing and elbow techniques.  Mehdi did 12 three minute rounds, with a 1 minute break!  The vest was dumped at round 7.  Man he’s in great shape!  I was beginning to get a sweat on.  I am happy to say that my shoulder held up (boy I’m falling apart :))  Thanks Vineet for the therapy!

I left Mehdi and the boys to play video games; some FIFA 2010 series, where he was slaughtering his students and went for some Persian food to finish my evening.  I think I will finish my evening with some drawing and reading.  Have a great night Kombat boys and girls 🙂  Jd
