Weirdest thing… woke up with a killer headache and body was still hurting from Friday. Eitherway, got to the gym around 9:30 am ishy. Got some rowing in… some lol. Much-needed, been way to long! Funny how life sometimes redirects you.

Short warm-up and stretching before the guys came in which was much needed, especially after Friday’s rolls to the death hahahah.

For the class we got in an easy 15 min standard warm-up with rolling, shrimping etc… then some squats, push-ups, crunches, and knees downs. We drilled hip bump sweeps, kimura’s, arm-bars, gilliotine’s, and omaplata’s. We then reviewed the knee slice-pass countering the De La Riva guard. Got the homies to work in some positional resistance against the guard with this specific knee slice-pass at 50, 75, 99 percent and finished with a few 5 min rounds of rolling.

It was a much needed open mat session this past Friday… guy’s were awesome.  Oh boy was I ever sore lol… thank god for the barley sandwiches lol. 

#Blueberrybeer hahah

10 min rounds, with some GI nogi action. 1 × Jesse, 2 × Kyle, 2 × Marc, 1 x Brandon, 3 × Nathan, and 2 × Kole. Homies didn’t let up… Jesse was a warm-up, Marc and Nathan were technical. The other few were competition mode. Great stuff!! Great rolls. Learned a lot from this open mat. Really avoided my ribs from getting tweaked. My wrist was definitely hard to avoid further abuse. A lot of rolling today.

Yep, a few 10 min rounds with JM, 7 min rounds with Mike Woodcock, Justin St Amand, Josh da Bod and a newer Mike from Manitou Island?? Eitherway love these guys… alway putting me in defense mode. Tough, tough, grind and very technical group of guys. Felt at home. Wished I had more time to come up and train with these guys. #life

Fun open mat before I took off for my small vacation. Travis the Man Duncan took over this morning, while the combination of him and Nathan will be putting forth knowledge next Sunday before I get back. 

#smallbreak 

We all gotta take little breaks… just not from BJJ hahahaha. Well, unless you got an injury, sick or working. Wait… if you got a family member(s) or friend(s) to takecare of, however not much lol.  So oooops, enough can keep you away from training. Life I guess. Either-way, it’s all about the push through those situations. 

Working outa town these past few months didn’t help me… but whatever, every other week was Fridays,  Saturdays, and Sundays. Then it would be Sunday only. 

#worktotrainjiujitsu 

I tried my best to keep in shape with a lot of walking, intermittent fasting and your standard push-ups. Oh and healthy eating hahah… 

Scotch, blueberry beer? & Wings Thursdays?

Gotta keep pushing, gotta keep training. Injuries only slow you down, can’t stop the growth. Always other ways to adapt.

Fun class, a few knewbs, great showing, and a visitor from steel city. Great guy! Does a lot of construction, like what I do, but instead for the builders side of things. Great stuff!!

We did a 15 min standard warm-up with rolling shrimping etc, then 50 squats, 30 push-ups, 30 crunches, 10 knee downs, & then 10 belly to butt drills. I then got the homies to rep 20 arm-bars swings, 20 hip-bump sweeps, 20 kimura’s, 20 omaplata’s, then 20 scissor sweeps all starting in closed guard. We then reviewed the closed guard lapel control cross collar choke. We finished with 2×5 min rounds of rolling, then we shark tanked Kevin for 10 mins straight for his birthday, switching in someone fresh every 1.0 min lol. 

Happy 28th birthday Kevin Smith lol…
Hopefully everyone enjoys their Turkey long weekend!!
