02-07-19 Kingsley: Back on the Horse

Tuesday 2nd July 2019

Daddy does the morning school run while I make up for lost hours of sleeplessness thanks to Miss Elektra the hungry baby. But I get the precious school pick up and jiu-jitsu run: my favourite. We eat all the lunch not eaten during school hours whilst waiting for the 313 then hit the mats.

Today a special treat: 7 year old Enzo from Woolongong. He’s pitted against Kingsley who is getting back on the horse after his first foray in a jiu-jitsu competition over the weekend (which rattled him – and me, let me tell you. That chokehold; that armbar…). Enzo dominated our son with techniques that shocked us parents watching. His dad is a world champion in judo and jiu-jitsu.  After their match Kingsley declared ‘he’s too good!’
