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!!

Ossss

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…

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.

Warm-up, stretching with the wife and baby hanging out. That fun… 🙂

Decent class with a nice warm-up from Nathan. Then the 25 push-ups, 50 squats, and then 25 knee-downs from me.

Interesting split this particular day lol… but we always cater to our crowd. Got a few of the guys to drill a pass with chaining positions and submissions we’ve been working on, while Nathan showed the newbies some basics. 

#newbs

I remember when I was a white belt… Kid Lightning and our head Coach choking and triangling the crap outa me. 

                  #ibuprofen #ohboy #didigetdecentattriangledefense?

We reviewed the paper cutter choke/strangle again since this was a different set of guys. Then we finished with 20 mins of king of the mat where you start in someones closed guard. Winner stays in OTM on his back for the first 10, then it was inside someone’s guard for the next 10 for the winner.

I won’t be in tomorrow for Sunday morning, my flight from Toronto isn’t till noon… but I got Nathan Hatton and Travis Duncan, sooo all my homies will be in good hands.

#heavyweights

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.

#Word

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.
