On Saturday morning we start our first sparring sessions.  Will be interesting and a little bit scary too.  I have heard that some people will probably drop out at this stage (based on previous events) as we move into real contact.  It hadn't occurred to me that that may happen.

If I am still alive at the weekend I'll let you know how it went…
