Whenever I roll with John, I have no idea how it’s going to turn out. He is a very unpredictable man. He’s also quite strong, so I oftentimes have a challenge on my hands.
Last night, John and I enjoyed two rolling sessions, only one of which was worth putting online. The other, I don’t know – I didn’t love it. I looked kind of sloppy. I told John last night that I would just defend and he would attack. He followed in the beginning and then I became frustrated with only defending. It’s just not in my nature. Plus, when John uses his pressure, I take that as an invitation to turn things up notch. If you haven’t noticed, I like to play coy while rolling, but sometimes I just need to break out and have fun.
In last night’s match, we kind of traded taps for a while. Between the two matches, we spent a good 20 minutes together. As always, John gives a good workout.
