like all the other jiujitsukas talk about, That is, aside from a nasty
blue mark I got practicing ukemis when I pinned my own arm to the
ground with my knee... Still don't know how I did that.
Well, I was sitting at my desk this morning and noticed my left
forearm looked blotchy. I looked over to my right...same thing. Then
it hit me. I'm Black. My skin is dark. Unless a bruise is pretty
severe (like the one I got jumping over a row of chairs a few months
back...I gracefully tripped and got my leg wedged between two chairs)
it's not going to be super obvious. I took at some more spots and lo
and behold...bruises on my arms, one hand, thighs and a calve.
