I didn’t realize it at the time, but I apparently got a black eye in class on Monday. I didn’t notice it until the following day when looking in the mirror. In any case, it really doesn’t hurt at all. In thinking back to how I must have gotten it, I’m thinking it was probably when the aggressive blue belt on Monday was trying to lock in an Ezekiel choke. That particular choke requires you to press your bicep against the side of a person’s face. As I recall, he was trying pretty hard to sink in the choke. Also, I found out tonight that I will be testing for phase two white belt on Friday. I wasn’t sure whether there would be a test this month, since no announcements were made. However, at least, I will have tonight and tomorrow to review. If I pass, I will be able to wear a white belt with two blue stripes.
