2011.05.02PM; jiujitsu...Honolulu is currently underwater, with massive thunderstorms all afternoon, but I battled my way to the academy and had a good solid hour sparring with my viking Ranger.

I usually win, but he makes me earn it the honest, old fashioned way, with blood and sweat and it's good to have a training partner like him. He just published memoirs of his time in Iraq and is going on a book tour starting next week, so I will be the poorer until he returns in the fall. Here is his website:

http://zarqawisicecream.com/

Give it a look; he is a philosophical person and a great training partner. As for training, we just went to it for an hour straight; he had some brilliant reversals but in the end I always win, like water through stone, I simply won't lose.

Aloha!

2011.05.04PM; jiujitsu...warmed up a white belt class and taught them the cross-lapel choke from mount until the main instructor took over the class.

After that, I switched over to rolling with a very tough purple belt; first round I caught him quick in an americana, but second time he battled hard and I never caught him, although he did quit twice from exhaustion. Don Blue laughs at exhaustion.

Ha! I was actually going to pm Mak this very same question tonight! I have been thinking of changing mine for the first time since I started it.

I'll be getting this book asap. Hope all is well, Mak. As usual I am enjoying your log.

It's a line from the Lament for The Auroch:

Laboring in the liquid light of Leviathan
Specters swarm around the sunken cities of the Saurians
Rising from the void through the blackness of eternal night
Colossus of the deep comes crashing down with cosmic might


Exercise is my playtime, fun being the first priority, so I choose something that fires my imagination.
