Tami Carswell’s Tapout house blog – Victory favors those that take pain
We started out strong going into the gym. Everyone energized from a chill weekend. First we had some great stand up drills lead by Greg and then we switched to take downs.
When it was my turn I entered with the intention of defending anything that came my way. Staying low, I was ready when my opposition shot in on me, sprawling out I defended the shoot.
What happened next I did not anticipate. My sparring partner grabbed my torso on the ground, picked me up, and slammed me down right on my shoulder. When I got up I knew something was different.
