No Gi

Guard pass drills around with the whole class on both sides. Then 7 minute rounds. Two rounds with a real tough fighter, lots of back and forth and exhausting rolls. Wrestling class was after but I didn't do it. Bitch move.

Holy shiiiiit

Went in early for a new small MMA Class. Did ground and pound techniques, breaking the guard then stacking the legs, pinching your knees around their legs and squating as you pound, then pass. After the pass we did a cradle and from there go to knee on belly and pound, or step a leg inbetween theirs and trap their bottom arm back for joyous ground and pounding. A few other things too...d'arce chokes all over the place. I'm going to find a d'arce dvd to review these, because they never fully made sense until today, and I think if I build on them I could have a good weapon for alot of positions that I'm not as offensive in.

BJJ Class X 2
Lots of warmups and drills and grip fighting. Techniques were d'arces when someone passes your guard, d'arces when someone moves from side control to north south, escapes from armbars, preventing the mount from knee on belly. Lots of good rolls today, I pwned a big white belt quite thoroughly, with armbars, triangles, omoplata sweeps, spider guard...just everything. I had a tough roll with Brian, the brown belt instructor and got tapped twice but held my own decently, taking his back by the end of the round. Lost a short round to a purple cranking a side control on me. A few other rolls but nothing else really to report. I'm ultra spaced out right now.

Muay Thai

Yeah, that's right. I did 4x hour long classes back to back today. Warm up shit, punch kick combos on the shield most of the class, Squat + Kicks pyramid drill at the end.

Damn today was good.

Bodyweight is 201lbs today. That's pretty much all the dieting I needed to do already done way ahead of schedule, so I'm bumping my calories up 300 again to hopefully maintain where I am, maybe lean out another 1-2.

MMA Heavy sparring with Miles and Bruno. Both guys are more experienced and skilled than me but my size was a saving grace. Did alright. We did 5 min rounds, 2 on 1 off, 4 rounds total each. Was glad to only get taken down 2 or 3 times in 4 rounds, and managed to reverse the position a couple times. Feeling beat up, might try to get back into the gym in a few hours to do some more work, see how things are feeling.

Thanks man! Any tips is pretty ambiguous, I guess the best thing I could say is if you're getting back into it is to go at a maintainable pace, there's no use spending 15-20 hours a week in the gym and burning yourself out right away. Start small and build.

This Week's Goals:
-4 Grappling Classes SUCCESS
-2 Muay Thai Classes SUCCESS
-1 MMA Class SUCCESS
-2 Sparring Sessions SUCCESS
-2 Padwork Sessions FAIL
-2 Shadowboxings/Heavybag Session FAIL
-1 GSP Workout FAIL
-1 Burpee Session FAIL
-Finish "Roy Dean's Blue Belt Requirements" FAIL
-Track Diet daily with Myplate, stay at target calories (2900) SUCCESS

A few failures but a very good week overall. The problem with these goals is it makes my schedule very rigid, when I really need to adapt and take the best training available to me. Or I get stuck at work on the weekend and the gym closes. Anyways, the heavy mma sparring prevented a workout or two, but is what I need most.

BJJ Class X 2

Good classes, not going to go into detail because I'm sleepy and underslept and have work in the morning.

Hit the bag 3 rounds afterwards, then joined some muay thai guys for 30 mins clinch sparring.

Warm up, drilled combos for most of class, hopping around on the balls of our feet, 5 rounds sparring, then drilled body shots. Killed the body today. Training partner joined in for class this time, good shit. Tomorrow I get to work with Kajan in a private class!!!

Private Class with Kajan!

Can't describe how awesome it is to work with Kajan. Above and beyond any other training I get, and just an awesome role model and coach.

Warmup run, acrobatics, mma shadowboxing 3 rounds, techniques were all wrestling based. Sprawling on a double leg, as they penetrate for the take down, the forearm nearest their head and the same side hip twist their head to the center, other hand wizzers as you sprawl out. From there we learned to control by cupping the chin with the wizzer hand in the armpit, forearms in tight against them, not flared out. Hips are sprawled low but make sure your weight is on them, not the mat, feet are on the mat to the sides, not on your toes for maximum sprawl pressure. From there we learned to yank with this grip to drag them out, then the chin hand reaches to their but to prevent their escape as you come around to the back. Nearest leg either staples their nearest leg, or alternatively you attach that leg directly to their nearest and lean in for more pressure. Pound from here, look for opening and you can take back or trap an arm and roll them into side. More wrestling technique - Defending the single leg, immediately wizzer, grabbing your own leg, spin leg out of their grip and step outside them, leaning in to use their body in place of your trapped leg. Grap a wrist with free hand, still holding the wizzer, should be hopped around to facing the same direction as them, then a big kick out to free the leg. Alternatively from here you can sprawl sideways pushing the whizzer hard to the floor.

Positional sparring. Turtled with them sprawled over you and vice versa, standing with a single leg trapped, stuck against a wall with them in on a double leg. Did decently in the sparring.

Then MMA sparring, just two rounds. **** I was tired. Did okay but wish I'd been better. Armbarred the guy in the first but was taken down too easily a couple times. You know how hard it is to work your guard tangled in ropes, wearing heavy shin guards and 16oz gloves? Ugly.

Going to think about how I can drastically change my training in these next 3-4 weeks leading up to the fight. I want shorter overall duration, but higher intensity. I want shadowboxing, bagwork, pads at 3:00 full intensity with sprawls and shooting for takedowns. Sprints. Heavy sparring. Wrestling.
