For years now I’ve sparred on Saturdays – we have long had a senior sparring class on the schedule in a late afternoon timeframe, finishing up around 4 pm. I don’t get out there every week – Saturdays are big days at our school and sometimes my workload prevents it, but I try. Sparring is a great way to wrap up my week (I work Tuesdays-Saturdays, as a rule); it’s a vigorous physical activity like none other, and it just happens to be one of my very favorite things to do. It was probably five years or so ago in my head that I linked this weekly Saturday sparring session to Elton John’s classic hit Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting. As pop acts go, Sir Elton has long been one of my favorites.
We’ll see if I manage to get out there tonight.
Thanks for reading.
