I’ve gotten back into sparring after being away from it for a while. I always do bag work and mitts, and I teach class sometimes; but, being in the ring with someone who punches back is totally different. All of my sparring opponents are younger and quicker so it’s a real challenge. Surprisingly, I’ve somehow managed to do a lot more punching than getting hit. And, amazingly, The Wife does NOT think I’m crazy. I generally have a lot of energy. And I’m especially energetic after going a few rounds with the young guys and emerging unscathed. And I usually put that energy to good use.
