Entry #419

I received two more replies to my invitation. One is from a man about 80 lbs. lighter than I am and a few inches shorter, with very little experience. The other is a much bigger fellow, smaller than me, but with a claim of an extensive background in "Karate, Jujutsu, and Ninjutsu" (sic). Him and the first responder, who shall be named Sasquatch for now, George, Jeff, and Dan make a decent-sized group. I will invite the beginner if he feels comfortable, but, otherwise, some private drills and sparring would be apt with him. I have to organize the set-up and send back confirmations to everyone, but, whatever the case, I'm definitely going to fight Sasquatch above all.

> Two factors stood against me. I've been cycled off of creatine for about two weeks now, and, more notably, rest-times were reduced by a drastic amount for today. To illustrate, this particular session usually takes 110 minutes. I completed it in about an hour, with little compensation.
