Everyone seemed a bit more energetic during sparring tonight. It seemed more difficult to impose my game. I ended up in more disadvantageous positions than I wanted, even though I was doing a reasonable job defending guard passes. I’m not sure whether it was due to a lapse in concentration on my part, or if my sparring partners were more committed to bypassing my defenses tonight. I was able to pull off a few things, but it seemed like tonight felt like a slight step backward. I’m not sure what to make of it. Why was I seemingly so effective last night, but less so tonight? Was I holding back too much tonight? Were they taking it too easy on me the night before? Was I taking unnecessary risks tonight compared to last night? It’s frustrating when you’re successful, but don’t exactly know why, and have difficulty replicating that success. Back to the drawing board!
