When Alan opened the gym, the only other person there outside of me was Mannan (Mohammad). Alan remarked that he thought because of the nice weather, gym attendance would start slacking off. Other than Mannan, St. Louis, and myself, there was Sarah, Amy, Gabriel, Walter, Colonel, and Lania.
The guys did not spar. Sebastian was out due to some surgery he had. Colonel's doctor told him to wait 30 days before attempting to spar again. Walter was still recovering from a health issue. Besides, now that the weather is warm, Walter will soon switch his workout to in-line skating until the fall. Mannan's still working his way up to getting back to sparring again. I guess Gabriel and St. Louis didn't feel like sparring. So all the women, except for Lania, took turns in the ring.
I'd like to recommend a book I've been reading called The Boxing Dictionary: "The language of the ring" by Jonn E. JaGazza. It includes the meanings of words and phrases heard most in the boxing world. I finally found out what "walking a man down" means. It just means when one boxer pursues their opponent and eventually wears them out, both mentally and physically, with body and head shots. Very entertaining reading, and a great reference for anyone who is interested in and/or participates in the sport.
