Between getting rid of my cast and another lockdown, I lived through my first period of training regularly without sparring since my beginner's course. Went to classes, saw some guys called Josh and Priit, and did a bit of actual drilling.
I didn't have time to write for a while: I was too busy training and was commended on my progress. Even better: I had noticed it myself that I had become slightly less horrible at some of my weak points. My guard had become slightly more difficult to pass, for one. Now I finally have time, as I'm not allowed to move my right leg until November.
