Got to LEMMA around 6:15 pm…
Finger was still mangled… what-eves.
Tape hahahah… sometimes you just gotta train a little injured. You never know when you have to actually fight.
Morning conditioning… 4 sets, 10 min each… didn’t hit my 2.0 km mark but hey… 4th set was still the best.
6:30 pm BJJ was fantastic @leadingedgemma!
Takedowns and some shark tank drilling. My favorite… Iron sharpens iron.
Boy, was I ever gassed at the end.
All the heavy weights showed up tonight lol. O.o
I went for the takedowns…
I even had to fake guard pull then sweep…
Some guys were so hard to takedown… fighting tooth and nail, I even failed…
Drilling when your gas tank is empty reveals weakness… overcome an adapt!
See you OTM!!

Yep if you haven’t heard from Facebook, July 22 was my date of birth… woopdidoo lol. I mean yes a birthday is always great to celebrate but on a Wednesday? really? wtf can you do nowadays. Especially if you are freaking 37 hahahah… yeah more booze then sleep after BJJ. hahahah oh well wash away my sorrows of getting younger.
BTW add me to Facebook if you haven’t…
Sooo blessed though with all the wishes for a very great day… kinda flabbergasted. If that’s even a word. thanks for all the lovely wishes… my day was made while spending it with the little guy and my wife got me ice cream cup cakes… my homie took me and G out for some Thai curry, not authentic btw lol and I got mauled by my partners at the gym… yes I had a few glasses of scotch with coke I might add… not the sipping kind hahahaha.
Showed up at the gym ummm around 6:00 pm, got to roll with Juneau.
Fun roll and it wasn’t to the death… at some moments I could feel his desire to kill me.
Good Restraint homie, that’s what BJJ is about.
Then I rolled a few rounds with Diesel. Fun fun… kept me in defense mode. tried a few stupid things I should have but hey, experiment and go with it sometimes…. maybe not this time. Diesel is 200 lbs. He says he is 180 lbs. Don’t think so, maybe 190 lbs.
I’m 160. 155 when I’m drained 165 lbs after a good meal. Dude has heavy hips. MMA guy… tonnes of wrestling experience. Love rolling with him. Used technique, but when he got frustrated, I could feel his strength… dude is experienced and is a beast. Oss.
Our head coach got me in for getting shark tanked… so class started at ummm 6:30 pm and ended at ummmm 7:30 pm.
Felt kinda bad for my little buddy Jayden. He said that he came to class to learn something, instead of getting beat up.
Its either you win or you learn, no harm rolling with someone better then you… its all part of the development and you will get better.
I told Jayden, you need to focus on defense… he tried to wrist lock me lol.
Told him white belts are not allowed to wrist lock, but if you want to roll like that, then eh. I wrist locked him the rest of the rounds… not sure if he was tooo impressed. The thing with Jayden is that he is very technical. Give him a little space and he will take your back. Great kid and hopefully he is in for the long haul, remind me of me when I was younger.
Marco is a beast. He held out on a few chokes lol. At one point I counted 33 secs… damn son.
Believe me I ain’t no master but eh… blood to the brain is important hahahah.
Scotty, as always a pleasure to roll with, his top game with pressure is coming along. Tough tough roll, especially with his leg lock arsenal, gotta keep those in mind.
Travis damn son… what are you 190 lbs lol. Stronger, bigger, and flexible… built for BJJ OSSS!
Shoot I was tired, sore, and ready for some Johnny when I got home.
Rolling: (5 min rounds, 1 min breaks)
