I started at the WT-center after an unpleasant incident one night on my way home. No one was hurt, but I didn't like the feeling of helplessness towards a determined opponent. Since then I got hurt lots of times under the kind guidance of the WT-instructors.
I got af grasp of the technical side of WT - especially when the concept was altered from standing on your back leg to 50-50 on each leg.
But what is a technique without experience? So I spend long, wonderful evenings with equally minded, trying out, what we were taught in classes. So much friendly advice in each punch!
