The elbow to the jaw was all strategy. It was just before I knew we were going to spar ya know.
Mark and his family are wonderful. If I could imagine a family that had everything I wanted ,it would be his. Thankyou very much Mark,Julie,Ian,Johanna,and Sarah!!! Also thanks to cxt and everyone else involved in my road trip,it was a wonderful learning experience! I'm very thankful to have experienced it.
Mark is an exceptional teacher with his class at Duncan's school. I could see the respect all of the students held for him. The crabfight was fun too! The two little purple bely boys were cheating like mad,they would make excellent goju students.
Mark also has an exceptional gift when it comes to kata breakdown,especially for someone who has had to do his own research and reach his own conclusions. I could see him reading my own kata when I performed it and came up with some ideas I hadn't thought of that were nice!
Oh yeah, Thanks BRAD!!!! For showing Mark the nice thigh kicks that left me bruised,ouch!!!
I'm sure I'll be meeting with Mark in the future since we're so close.
