Well I am regularly attending kickboxing classes have been since January, and I made the leap and decided to try grading 🙂
D day us April 6th ……
To say I am terrified would be a understatement and yet I don’t know why …..
Is it because If I start I won’t want to stop or is it if I do and fail I’ll never go back or maybe it’s still the old group class anxiety thing again ….
Which to be fair I have been over coming quite well….
I have attended Pilates, yoga, aqua and fitness classes even tried a crafting class so it should be easy ????
To be fair I think if you ask people, the odd few who know me well, they would recognise my efforts at conquering my anxiety over both personal space, hugging for no reason mmmm whats that all about 😉
And group exercise, which to be fair has been a long standing problem, like most problems, my recovery method ….
Dump myself in and do it !
Because of this
The funniest class moment for me has to be when a sensi said “give me your hand”
Lots of conflicting thoughts and no sane reason to any of them so after looking at both hands and him and the hands my voice finally said “which one”
I often wonder if I look as barking mad as I feel when uncomfortable !!!
Although I am sure there are many more funnier moments in class for those who watch, as I have face planted the floor, wall and bag several times, in fact Annie suggested I train a way from the weights today due to my lack of balance and possible impending impaling 🙂
Still I am improving slowly….
Kata class will be soon be over taking press ups as my nemesis…..
And we won’t mention sparring !
But our sensi lined us up the other night and said we are all capable of black belts if we don’t quit looking up the line it’s an awful long way ….
So for now I do baby steps and see if I can get a red belt and the colour bug!
