On Monday, I started going to East West MMA because they had a 4 week free trial. 4 weeks!!! That's an awesome deal, but the guy said they can do that because they are so confident that people will sign up once they try it. And he was right. It's frickin' awesome!
I've gone to the group classes for two nights now. Last night we did a lot of kickboxing, and it was an insane workout. Burns a lot of calories. Tonight we did knife defense and some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. That was after we did some stretching, including something the Sensei called "The Big Hurt". I don't know if I've ever been so sore or had so much hurting in my life, but it's a good kind of pain.
I can't imagine doing this for any length of time and not losing weight or getting in good shape. It would be impossible. I'm just loving it!
