I can't quit figure it out. Sometimes I even ask myself: is this really fun?
Tonight (just got home after about four hours of training) we did hard sparring. We also had a guy who's a pro-kickboxer (he's not the only pro-around, but probably the best kick-boxer - like American kick-boxing rules, who trains with us routinely) who occasionally comes around spar with us: and it's insane how good he is. Well my coach wanted me to do some rounds with him (in addition to with the other folks there) basically as a sort of physiological-booster of sorts so that I could "know" that I could at least survive (more or less) in the ring with someone like that.
Well, yeah, a couple rounds, and an insane amount of blood later (I'm not usually a big bleeder)it was over, and I was asking myself: is this really fun? I still don't have a good answer, but I know I like doing it, and I'll show-up tomorrow to do it again (not that we spar like that everyday). But I can't really articulate what about it keeps me coming back and subjecting myself to these kinds of beatings.
Anyone have any personal insight into this?
Why do you keep going back for more?
