Larry (Me): Know what's a cool name? Agamemnon. My new favorite purple belt's named Agamemnon.
Balki: You're right...wow...not only do you have a belt named Agamemnon, but multiple purple belts.
Larry: ...Agamemnon is a guy at WooJitsu...and I don't name my belts, BJJ or otherwise.
Balki: Ooohhhh...that changes EVERYTHING.
Open mat was so fun. I'm always so scared. The big kids still intimidate me a bit, even if they are really cool. I tried some variations in difficulty on armbar drills...difficult. Got some nice comments on my new Padilla and Sons gi too, which I've managed to shrink quite well. The top's probably down to an A3 after some washing and drying (thanks Georgette). The night's music was a 70's/80's mix of Earth Wind and Fire, Go West and Lionel Richie. I gotta admit, "King of Wishful Thinking" does suck a bit of the aggression out of you and forces you to relax. I was being choked and was still humming along. Love that song. Peppiest breakup song ever.
And yes, we do refer to each other as "Balki" and "Larry".
