In a few days, fittingly on Sunday, December 7, the last reunion for the survivors of USS Arizona will be held at Pearl Harbor. Let us remember that day, and be ready to defend our freedoms from, as the time honored oath states, "all enemies, foreign and domestic." 

And like warriors of old, some will return one last time, to be interred aboard, with their weapons and comrades from dark days long ago.

If the Northern Lights shine at Pearl Harbor that day, worry not; it's just the Valkyries riding by in salute...

Boxing: The Next Generation by Seleneboxer
Boxing: The Next Generation

Scrap and Little Liz (so-called because Liz is also the name of the tall lass refereeing) are supposed to be tap sparring—throwing fast, but very light punches to practice technique without the natural tensing up that happens when the punches hurt a lot.  It’s a great training method for relative novices, or even for more advanced boxers practicing new techniques.

 

These two aren’t wanting to keep things light, and have started winging harder punches at each other, despite constant warnings from Big Liz.  Scrap’s the worse culprit, but Liz certainly doesn’t deserve a halo here.

 

Liz is finally fed up, and letting them know it…it would take a brave lass not to pay attention in this situation.

 

Most of the time in the gym is spent on conditioning, working the bags, and controlled sparring—but often, the “controlled” part slips away after a few rounds.  Sometimes, the coach will let things continue that way, but other times, the light and controlled aspect is important.  That’s when we have no hesitation about trying new techniques, and getting familiar with other ways to stop punches, and deliver our own—without getting a short nap, or needing to get bloodstains off of our shirts, if we mess up.  Keeping control of a sparring session is the mark of a good coach…being able to lift both students off the ground at once can substitute for more verbal methods—and likely the two kids will learn that Liz means business.  Little Liz certainly will—but Scrap is a wee bit stubborn…or thick headed, she’s also been called.

This is another pic in the "Essence of Boxing" gallery, showing some of what a coach goes through.

‘Tis a great time to think of our freedom, as over the years, various people and groups have tried banning, and even destroying books, stifling the free exchange of ideas.  For if people’s minds are in jail, it matters not if the body is free to roam the nation.

Too many have tried to limit what we read; the list is long and tragic.  School Boards are pressured into removing books, churches tell members not to read certain materials, or even murder people for spreading the contents of some books.  Nazi Germany and the USSR aren’t the only culprits, even the USA has tried to regulate what we see and hear.  The Islamic extremists—and Christian ones—and extremists of all sorts—also try to prohibit people from reading some books, or thinking dangerous thoughts, asking dangerous questions.  For to question the authority of the boss, the god, or the dogma leads to people making up their own minds; they do not want that.

As our civil rights are eroded, Banned Books Week is a reminder that we must practice CONSTANT VIGILANCE!!!  (A catchphrase taken from a book that many people attempt to ban…the Harry Potter series.)

If anyone tells you, “This you must not read, this you must not think, this it’s impermissible to question,” then, as far as I’m concerned, that person is trying to imprison a mind—a truly heinous crime.  Your library is certain to have a lot of banned books; read some this week.

Winner and Loser

When a fighter expects to loose, she’s beaten before the first punch is thrown. 

 

Here, an argument has been taken to the ring, and, within moments, we’ll be trying to beat the tar out of each other.  I knew Evalyn was big, but, with mere seconds before the punches start flying, I’ve abruptly become very aware of the size difference—not just the height, but the massive muscles she has; every punch she lands is going to hurt—a lot.  And, she’s good—at least as good and as fast as I am.

 

Her confident stare has thrown me off balance mentally, making me think of the raw power she can generate with that big, well toned body, imagining will happen when her fists crashed into my nose, my ribs—the raw pain that comes from taking her power punches clean in my face.  And those massive muscles—sexy as all get-out—but scary when she’s using them to drive those hard fists—encased in small 8 ounce gloves—into my body.  It’s obvious to me that this was a mistake, that she’s going to punch the crap out of me.  That glare is making me think of the ever increasing burning on my face as Evalyn contorts it with punch after punch—the deep pain from too many rib and belly punches, and the way I’ll look when she’s is done with me.  Getting in my face as she has is just part of her way of intimidating me, and it’s working; she’s won the fight right here.  She’s got me so focused on her advantages to fight well, to use the hit and move approach that works so well.  What’s more, she knows as well as I do that she’s got this won; it’s just a matter of formalizing it with her fists.

 

She can take her time, enjoy the match, and make it last if she wants to…and to make things worse, I know she likes to drag out a pounding—this is going to hurt—and hurt all the more because we’re fighting to a knockout.

Thanks for asking about Espresso Carmel.  Back in the day of the pics you're faving, she was down to her fighting weight around 120, standing at 5'10".  She's gotten older and fatter since then, as have we all (speaking for myself, of course), but could probably get back down to 130 if properly motivated.
