Gaspar Yanga—often simply Yanga or Nyanga—was a leader of a slave rebellion in Mexico during the early period of Spanish colonial rule. Said to be of the Bran people and member of the royal family of Gabon, Yanga came to be the head of a band of revolting slaves near Veracruz around 1570. Escaping to the difficult terrain of the highlands, he and his people built a small maroon colony, or palenque. For more than 30 years it grew, partially surviving by capturing caravans bringing goods to Veracruz. However, in 1609 the Spanish colonial government decided to undertake a campaign itself to regain control of the territory.
Worked the heavy bag yesterday first time this year, 5 times 3 minutes including elbows and kicks. Had no gloves so i chose to do mostly open hand palm strikes. I managed to cut my elbow with some vicious elbows and my wrists feel sore today, but all in all it was a nice experience. Funny part is that the heavy bag is in the middle of the gym so occasionally dudes just randomly start hitting the bag 5-6 times and then continue lifting weights.
