So I'm still getting used to my pod. Slowly things like not banging it into door frames, or having it taken off during a judo take down will hopefully happen less and less. Yesterday I changed pods before work, at the office I was coming out of a room and hugged the corner a little too close. Pod was on the side/back of my arm and.... well I'm sure you see where this went. It stayed on, but was hanging on by threads (thankfully the insertion site was the part that held!). So, I get home, do a quick change and get myself ready for karate. Halfway way through a lesson on how to defend against being attacked from behind I use an arm/hip toss combination on someone and wham. Yup, pod number two. After that was thankfully nothing more strenuous than dinner, so pod number 3 is going strong......
