Also did a double round with Alex and Winston before leaving.


Dudes were grinding!!

Shoulder to the face and spazzy white belt BJJ SHIZZO lol…

Oh well, we all went through the stage lol… some longer then others.


Tony is a brick… the brick brick house!!

Jammed my wrist somehow..?

Dec 22/15 Tues Morning BJJ

Train lots, train as often as you can, and just do it… especially if you can. Work, life, and plenty of worldly things will always get in your way, but when absolute opportunity arise, man there are no excuses, aside from sickness and health. Moving and doing things is what makes us live. Being engaged in actual physical and mental activities makes us human, creatively makes us grow intuitively. Its innate and deep deep inside us.


Everything’s in the mix… the perfect hobby.


Ironic though… a wonderful quote I once came upon by the lovely Tabetan Monk the Dalai lama

BJJ takes me to the here and now. Living in the moment. Trying to survive for my life.

Sooo then definitively BJJERs are living!!

Whut whaaat!!!

#BJJ4life #bjjfourlife

Osss Osss!!


Yeah lol…

Got to LEMMA around 9 am… gym temperature was crap lol.

Hot extreme warmer temperatures minimise injury period come on mon… guess the owners of building hate paying for hydro or gas lol.

Maybe the heat is why in Brazil the age cohort is much greater that train in Jiu-jitsu…

That’s a bunch of #bullshit BTW lol.

Jiu-jitsu has just been there much much longer lol. I do see some kind of positive correlation between injuries and the climate of the conditioning area’s… makes  sense no? Still gotta warm up though. False sense of physical security jumping right into hard rolling lol…

Yes last night I popped a naproxen… didn’t even go to BJJ at night. Ankle and upper back was a little sore.

No I didn’t drink lol…

Apparently naproxen and alcohol can cause holes in the stomach. Don’t need that lol.

Clip of us this morning below, 5 min rounds, with Kat, Thor, Winston, Jordan, and Justin…

Coach Keith dropped some nice knowledge about the collar grip set up!! Ossssss, if you missed it… to bad. Go get a private from him.


Well worth it!!!

Great rolling this morning!!

Dec 21/15 9:00 am Monday Morning

Showed up at LEMMA around 9 am… tones of guys OTM this wonderful morning.

Temperature was #badass in the gym.

Great for the joints of this old man…


Love how I’m getting 2 weeks off of work to unwind, yep back at the desk on the 4th lol… especially after the grueling session of trying to play catch up to all the paper work after taking 5 months off from Parental leave to take care of the baba. No hate…

Parental was parental leave, seriously all work and no sleep hah!!



Veal showed us some tricks with the darce choke from side control with his long ass monkey arms…

Fantastically awesome!

Rounds were tough this morning, no one was letting up… freaking sore, tired and burnt out.


Great stuff though… rolled with the Bear, Veal, Tony and then Thor. All were 5 mins of constant pressure, with 1 min breaks?

Was reminiscing my very first takedown in my very first IBJJF tournament in Chicago after I got my blue belt… made a cute clip of it while drinking scotch last night below…

Got a quick clip of us messing around this morning below…
