Coming off a positive session in episode 11 this was a difficult day. Karuhat was not feeling well – thank you for coming so far to come and train me, an hour in the taxi – and that seemed to make him for focused on shutting me out, and this definitely frustrated me. One of the issues I am working on is moving away from the emotional valleys. Beyond this though there is a lot worked on this session, and he introduces a throw/trip that will become a mainstay of my work in the weeks following this. I’ve never seen it before, and it is pure Karuhat, leveraging the outside angle with the thigh. It’s a very important move for my developing style because it gives me an outside attack against a stalling fighter on the ropes, something I face frequently in Thailand.
