It really has been an exceptionally terrible week. Everyone is out for blood, this morning an old lady cut me off then flipped me off. I don't really believe in that kind of stuff but I wonder if there's a full moon or something?

Some lady came in going nuts saying one of us stole an iPad out of her car yeterday. She just came in. She got security, called the cops and says she is going to call the news... -_-

Had a ******* awful day. Topped off by one of those nights where no matter how hard I tried nothing would work for me at training. Stuff I have done a thousand times over and know I could do just wasn't happening, which got me angry which resulted in me being angry at being angry, downward spiral and all that. Actually embarrassing, was instructed how to shoot from a beginner (which, if he was trying to help or not ******* infuriated me) been doing this for years and am on the fight team this should be second nature for me. Home now and still can't calm down, seriously I know you have off nights but this was the worst I have ever had.

Blergh.

It happens man. Sometimes I find that if I train too much, I seem to actually regress. If I take some time off (a week or two) I actually seem to improve. I have no idea why that works, but it does for me. Maybe I'm over thinking stuff instead of just letting it flow. I don't know.

Have a couple beers and relax. There's always tomorrow.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Happens to me as well. When ever I hit a road block in my training where I feel like I'm not getting any better I get way too frustrated and do stupid things. I always seem to come back way better when I take a little while off, for me it's a week. When I come back I feel like everything has solidified.

I came back from my holiday 20lbs heavier so I've been going to the gym every morning and training at nights, think you guys are right actually I've over done it. I'll take tomorrow and Sunday off!

Would murder a few beers or to crack open ny New expensive Vodka but I'm sober for the next 7 weeks. Nights like this test me though!

Btw on the being corrected by a beginner thing, if the guy has been there long enough to at least know some things, like a few months, always listen. I think it was one of the Gracies that said "Always keep a white belt's mentality" I know how annoying it can be to listen to every white belt think he's come up with something never seen before, but you have to keep an open mind and being willing to learn from anyone. All though I can't say I'm not guilty of wanting to slap white belts in the face from time to time because they think they are correcting/showing me but it's important to at least try to listen.

Personally what drives me insane is whenever a guy comes in that's been grappling for a week and I show him a triangle, without fail he will always say "you didn't pull on my head." I swear to god it's happened at least 20 times in my jitz career, the guy comes to class for a week and tells me how to finish one of my highest percentage subs and he wants to correct me or tell me I'm doing it wrong.

Haha if someone less experienced or informed at least corrected me on one of my go-to moves I'd lose my shit! To be fair I was doing it wrong I just got wound up that I knew it, can do it and can usually do it well but tonight I just sucked that much.

I've never really lost it the closest I've been is some kid came in, I guess he wrestled a couple years in high school and thought he was going to be a UFC star in six months. We were drilling take downs together and he told me my footwork was wrong for my single leg. I was a three time all-state wrestler so it bothered me a little bit, but I just brushed it off because he was new and like 18. But I did it again and he told me there was no possible way I could take anyone down. I told him I have and do quite a bit and he told me there was no way I could take him down, I just walked away and left him on the mat with no partner, because I could feel that I was going to put him on his head if I had to keep working with him.

I always seem to be the one that works with all the douche bags, so I've developed a pretty insane ability to keep my cool. If I had a short temper I feel like I may have killed someone by now haha.
