my first was something like 4,5 years ago?
one day my Sifu decided to not supervise us and left us to the usual routine. Since he wasnt there I brought up the idea of sparring. So me and my kungfu brotha went at it.
Lots of bridging happening. At the time, I knew a little bit of Muay Thai so I tried to mix it in with my Mantis. Didnt work so well. But his set up moves were always the same so I just caught on and used it against him, landing some light hits to the body (we werent striking the face).
Then somehow he had my back and pushed him against the wall. I tried to pry his hands out and struggled a little. I got a bit wild to loosen up his grip and then I ended up landing a back elbow to his face, which did the trick. But it was accidental and we stopped there haha
