I need to get into some kind of combat sport. I work out enough; if you take away my constant smoking and binge drinking, I'm in decent shape. I've gone through some physically trying shit, and I've always found it to be a relief from the constant drudgery that was school or my job, and now is no different.
It's amazing how good you feel when someone teaches you an easy way to rip a guy's shoulder out, how it takes your mind off of everything else you're going through. It'd be far nicer if learning this stuff formally didn't cost an arm and a leg... thank God for Army buddies.
Anyway, now I've got one good ground move and one good standup move. That puts me two moves ahead of most guys.
