It was Australia Day yesterday and I have to admire the people who made the decision to turn up to training, last night, on a public holiday let alone one of the hottest days of this year and 100% humidity. Do you know people actually pay good money to sweat like that – saunas and steam rooms.
Although uncomfortable, it was nevertheless, great just to do something. If we keep depending on weather and time, you might as well get the calendar and start crossing out a few days. Actually, for me, it was not too bad after spending 2 hours wrestling last Monday night on the 2nd floor of an old building without any fans or other circulation. The reality is not so much you can't train in bad weather, it's more the sudden weather change making it noticeable. Given that hot and humid weather we had this week remains the same over the next few weeks, nobody would ever bother bringing it up.
At the end of the day, we are martial artists and we can train under any conditions which is not like sitting in an office in front of a computer. Just something to think about when the invevitable weather change happens again.
