    What does your CT Permit say?
    As many will recall from an earlier post in General Non Glocking, I recently started with Tang Soo Do (www.tsdmgk.com) back in mid September.

    I have been going to morning classes in New Haven, CT 4x per week on average since starting.

    This week, however, I skipped the Wednesday morning class and went to the night class instead. Towards the end of it, I was informed that I was going to be sparring. EEK!

    Talk about the Deer in the Headlights reaction. I have never been in a fight in my life (such a sheltered existence)!

    Anyway, somehow I survived the experience and actually made some light touches. My opponent was very kind. :)

    Way different than the Judo sparring I remember from ages 11-13! ;)
