Didn’t want to go… went eitherway.

Wrist was really feeling it. Eitherway, Thor had me running the warm-up.

A small 10 minute warm-up with standard stuff.

He then had us rep the butterfly sweep, with an under hook belt grip from a sleeve, arm drag stuff from open guard back and forth for a few 10 minute rounds.

I partnered with Thor.

Repped out like a million of them lol… nuts!!!

Didn’t roll…

Catching up!!

Got to LEMMA around 5:45 pm…

Rhino ran the class… had us work on duck unders.

Technique was a guard break that involved trapping the arm.

Rolling was 10 minute rounds. Travis, Rupert, & some really big tall guy, think his name was Evan… as big and tall as big red. Definitely newer… weird how they always ask for the roll. Great stuff, tough rounds. Guy’s weren’t letting up lol… giving it their all.

Some guys too much lol.

Ahhh well, the learning curve I guess.

Apr 10/16 Sun BJJ

Yes… there was snow this Sunday morning…

Hello snow… 5 cm sure lol.

image

Oh well the monkey was up at 6 am. Thanks to the wife, I got to sleep in till 8 am lol. Yep, got in some coffee, walked the dog, then gym by 9 am.

Word!!!

Yep got some rowing in…

Also other random activities lol…

We had a newer attendee. Tyler Duke, wow is this dude is big… think he’s a cop. Great stuff though, lots of potential and willingness to learn. Warm-up was standard, on 15 min. Drilling started with hip-bump sweeps, the hip-bump to kimura, the hip-bump to kimura to Omaplata’s. Then it was the pendulum sweep, then pendulum to arm-bar. Finishing with the scissor sweep, then scissor to mount x-collar choke. Great stuff… 1 min bangers. Next we reviewed the tripod sweep which moved into a chain of progressive control and attacks. Sweep, mount, side s-mount, harness, wing-choke, bow-choke, arm-bar. We’ve been working on this, piece by piece for the past few months on Sundays. The guys that show up get it… its beautiful to watch lol. We followed-up with troubleshooting issues everyone had, then 6×5 min rounds of hard rolling. Even class meant I only got to roll when Gare bear tapped himself out lol… think he was mad at me for something lol…. home boys gotta learn to be able to pace themselves lol. Oh well, here to coach. Small sacrifices for a better good. Helping BJJ grow as a whole. I get lots of rolling in during the week still, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays… most often Fridays. At least I come in at 9 am on Sundays to get conditioning in… or whatever you want to call it lol.

Clip of me pushing the homies a little this Sunday, grinding below… lol

April 4/16 Monday BJJ

Got to LEMMA around 5:45 pm… made sure to slap on my shin guard. Great stuff lol… oh and chugged a bunch of coffee.

image

BJJ as a career? lol
Viable?
Possibly?
Fun? Absolutely
#pipedreams

Kid Lightning ran the warm-up with a bunch of tumbling, forward/reverse shrimping, and forward/reverse rolling. He then had us review the double under-pass to darce… lovely. Ironically he hit it in his cage match this past weekend, with no arm. Neat. Almost looks like a N/S choke. Well a little bit of both. Variation ninjama stuff.

image

Great stuff though. Beautiful in fact… seeing BJJ work in the cage. Kid is a great inspiration to me… motivated me. Ever since i started, way back on 2008 lol.

#Stillhere

I partnered with TBT Steve for the review. We then had a few rounds of rolling. 5 min rounds. First with Steve, Thor, and then Ryan… great stuff. Veal said to flow. Um yeah…

Sometimes I feel lost, sometimes I feel uncomfortable, sometimes overwelmed, sometimes I wanna give up… like whats the point. No one cares… maybe it’s the injuries?

Reality is, the mat put’s me back together mentally… here and now. Just worrying about the moment. All you problems just melt away, when you are worrying about being choked. Just show up.

Yes I managed to get some training before the class lol…
