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.

Gotta train. No matter what, gotta keep moving. Only times I feel alive, at home with the family or OTM.

10 min rounds… a few with Marco, Jared, and then big Willy! Buzzer kinda went every 2 mins or something. Weird, whatever, so we just kept losing track of time, rolled, rolled, and rolled some more lol.

Great times nice technique from everyone. Freck Jared is bigger and stronger. His feet are the size of my torso hahah.

I was sore lol…

What what!!

This was our first confirmed jam last weekend. Working outa town weekly has been keeping from posting regularly. Not that anyone cares. But eh its my gibberish…. #consistency #Boom-digity?

Saw this on my buddies page… had to rip it.

#hardenthefuckup

Life never goes the way its planned. Our construction work was scheduled to finish around Sept. Nope… just wished there were homies around wanting to roll. Tried to bait around when I first got there. Only guys interested were only people looking to learn… with late late nights, coming home at 8 or 9 pm lol… yeah no. Knewbs means fights to the death, a lot of knewbs means more fights to the death and potential of me not going in to work functionally the following day. I’m 38 right now… my career is still in the works and eh nothing will ever go as planned… thats life. Gotta still work to pay for BJJ Gi’s lol.

Today was a little awkward and different. Special, none the less, with us doing our first training session at the new location at the Sport Dome. 

Eitherway it was #fantastic

Nathan ran a 15 min standard warm-up, I got our heart rates going with 50 squats, 30 push-ups, 30 crunches, 10 knee downs, 10 belly to butt turning drills. Coach Matt got us to review a couple of self-defense techniques. I then got us to drill arm-bars, hip-bump sweeps, the omaplata’s 10 each as fast as possible. We then reviewed the lapel control from closed guard,  with the wing choke variant when your opponent defends. We then finished with 20 minutes of king of the mat. Started in someones closed guard. It was cold, toes cold lol.. forgot to bring a rash guard, lol always going to be growing pains with a new place.
