Watch “July 31/16 Sunday Morning BJJ” on YouTube


My homie Andrew’s BDay… 
Got in early, swept the mats, warmed up and stretched for 45 mins. I really need to started rowing again… seriously. Hard getting a good work out town, especially in the summers, with 12 to 16 hours of your day on the job lol… 
Ended up doing a hard 20 min warm-up run by Nathan, 20 mins reviewing 2 variations of the paper cutter strangle, then a 20 mins shark tank starting for the Bday boy. 
10 mins for him on the bottom starting with closed guard, then 10 mins for him inside others closed guard until either the first point or submission for the next person in line.
Marc definitely loved it lol.
Yes we all lined up lol… fresh for the bday boy.



Happy birthday buddy!!

Great stuff!!

Slowly but surely lol… getting this done.
Damn straight… fed the monkey and went into the gym.


Sooo what injuries?

Gotta get some kinda bjj in… training that is.

Thor ran the class. Warm-up was a bunch of various shrimps around the mat, back archw, and then head strengthening exercises. He then had us review the butterfly fly sweep while being flattened out and two collar grips, which then sequenced into an inverted straight arm lock…. great stuff!!

I partnered with Aussey Mike and we repped  it out like a million times.

Apr 17/16 Sun BJJ

Long over due post… been busy. Training from April 17th lol. Wife say’s just work on them lol
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…

Fun slow mo roll with newer Mark lol!!

Either way, keep showing up… I do lol.

Just make sure to take time off when injured or you just keep injuring yourself!!
