Practicing some of my self-defense moves on this Chinese Elm. Though I did some of the techniques a bit rough, the gloves protected my hands from getting scraped or hurt.
I think I was too far from the tree and you’re supposed to move towards your attacker, not instinctively move away.
Liking my combat gloves. My knuckles are great. My husband says I’m cheating. Okay. I told him if he would practice with me I don’t have to use the gloves. He declined so gloves it is.
As a side note, in the 2nd pic, you can see my arm muscles that I worked hard this summer to get. Now to remove the fat and see the muscles underneath. .
Thanks to my son for taking the photos and making my breakfast the past couple weeks or more for me.
