When I’m allowed, while in Sudbury… guess what I’m doing. #bjj ????
Sunday Open Mat at Troop sure!!
Great open mat with my nickel mining homies lol… did I say they were all sharks??
Yes, please learn to swim if you decide to participate in one of their open mats. 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
Homeboys are skilled!! #OSSSSSS
Yes a little behind… working outa town weekly has been keeping me kinda busy.
Pays the bills though…
Pays for GI’s to train…
Working for the money makes the wife happy. BJJ bum… not so much.
Happy wife, happy life.
Then I get to train #BJJ
Unless I get something in town full-time just as comparible, this shall have to do lol. Beggars can’t be choosers and I’m kinda like a specialist in my field.
Video below… 20 mins warm-up run by Nathan. Then I got us to do 50 squats, 25 push-ups, 25 crunches, then 25 knee-downs as fast as possible. Got everyone to rep arm-bars, hip-bump sweeps, kimuras, then omaplata’s. We then reviewed the cross the back lapel control from closed guard. Second, was a sweep from the same control, right into mount. Third, was a base ball bat choke, if you missed the sweep. We then rolled for 5×5 min rounds.
Irony was that the class was full of the heavy weights lol. 15 mins hard warm-up, 45 mins of with the knee slice pass and chained submission drilling. 15 mins review of 2 paper cutter variations, first from the north south, then second from knee-on-belly. We then finished with 3 x 5 min rounds of rolling, think they were fairly tough rounds lol.
Either way it was a productive class.
Happy birthday buddy!!
15 min warm-up run by my homie Nathan Hatton. 30 mins of micro drilling knee slice-passes chaining to knee-belly arm-bar, kimura, then arm-bar with kimura control. 15 mins review of the double lapel control to cross collar strangle. Finished with 3 mins rounds starting from closed guard, then switched from either top to bottom or from bottom to top.15 min warm-up run by my homie Nathan Hatton. 30 mins of micro drilling knee slice-passes chaining to knee-belly arm-bar, kimura, then arm-bar with kimura control. 15 mins review of the double lapel control to cross collar strangle.

Seriously though, my kid wasn’t having a great day, not sure why… he wouldn’t let me go this day.
Eitherway, I got a good warm-up in… time with him most importantly, time on the punching bag, and even a few rounds in lol.
What can I say… had a couple Saturday night watching the MMA fights, lol just a couple. The fights were decent, guys and gal putting it on the line. To be honest haven’t watched too much UFC since I started training BJJ seriously.
Getting punched in the face for a living sucks. Either you give it, or your going to get it… that’s why I started BJJ to not continue getting punched in the face. It sucks, believe me lol. Training jiu-jitsu you can either be the hammer, the nail or just flow and tap. Striking, its either the one or the other, can’t really tap to striking with someone, especially in an MMA, kick-boxing or even boxing training session, getting punched in the face is all kinda part of it.
15 min warm up run by my hoime Dr Shat Hatton!! Then I got us to do 45 mins of drilling self-defense tactics with a counter from a right hook with a back take sacrifice takedown & a counter from right round house to the leg with a inside leg sweep to an Estima foot lock. Nathan then got us to review a few deadly school yard headlock escapes. After that we reviewed a closed guard cross collar strangle variation. We then had a couple 10 min rounds of rolling, with just positional stuff for one of the girls to improve her mount and turtling sensitivity.
Sweeping and mat cleanliness, with some stretching before the homies showed up…
With a great smaller group of people who just want to train!
See you OTM next Saturday, hopefully lol!!
15 min warm-up run by my homie Nathan. 45 mins of a torreando passing variation transitioning to knee-belly, then to a spinning arm-bar, kimura, and then an arm-bar with the same kimura grip control. Then we reviewed a closed guard lapel cross collar choke. Finished with 5×5 min rounds of rolling.
