(Apologies to Yoda)
So, I got a knee brace ordered for Isquibibble. Did you know that it's possible to blow out somebody's knee using only your shin and inner thigh, while they're kicking you?
Neither did I... Thursday, that is... the boss says she threw herself right into a classic lock on the way out and threw herself... but whether I popped it directly or she did herself dirty while we disengaged, or a combination of both... it's both cool and daunting to get to a point where you start inventing techniques on the fly -- and they work!
But it's another thing entirely to control something like that, since by definition you haven't had a chance to play with the leverages and timing involved...
Dolor amicus meus est, desperatia domina mea.
