I was at Krav Maga (self defense) class. I got partnered off with this girl named Gabby, and we were practicing different punches. First we practiced straight punches. I notice she twists her wrists a lot and throws off to the side a lot. I tried to correct her a bit, but the instructor moved quickly on to other stuff. We start practicing hammer fists, which is essentially hitting in a downward motion with the edge of your fist. She does the same, throwing punches off to the side. I correct her and tell her to just aim straight for my head, and not the pad I’m holding off. This girl couldn’t be more than maybe 120lbs and pretty skinny, but for a second there I was scared she was gonna take my head. A small adjustment made a huge difference. Just like in life. And that’s today’s life lesson well learned!
