Tech was back take from bottom half guard, option to rolling sweep when they try to flatten you. Third option when youre coming up the back and they whizzer, grip their sleeve to keep the whizzer in and roll under elbow first, stepping leg out for side control.

Rolled first few rounds starting from bottom half guard. A very small purple that I tried not to muscle around but had to a few times orhwould have made me look stupid. Got another purple closer to my size that I was eyeing up from last week when he was smugly beating up white belts...easy hip sweep, stayed in mount/back but couldn't finish. Next was a brown that always ****s me up, he ****ed me up again with effortless sweeps and armbars. Finally a smaller blue mostly stalling in my guard or his half guard.

Getting really frustrated with how quickly exhausted I still get. I guess it should be expected, but its really suckin the enjoyment out and I'm still claustrophobic/panicky in bad spots, which should be gone by now. Protect your head, folks.

Tech was a sweep from bottom half guard, get under them, grab their far foot with nearest hand, feed to other hand that is reaching around their hip, freed hand cups at knee, pull their leg out with yours to prevent posting as you drive them over. I know this sweep but it was nice to practice it and I was definitely missing the leg trap detail.

Drilled from half guard and I had some fun with a white belt and pretty much a stallfest with a blue belt, though I cheated and got a pendulum sweep because i wanted to test some details for it that I saw on youtube.

My rounds were with a good black belt, and two good browns. All were a bit more active and competitive than usual and i felt I opened up a bit more and had some energy for the first two at least.No idea why today I felt the polar opposite of how I felt yesterday, I had near identical sleep, meal timing and daytime activites as yesterday.

Tomrrow we head to Brazilian Top Team to meet the guys and watch a training session, pics to come.

Was late coming back from Brazilian Top team so I caught the beginners class instead. Drilled sit outs from turtle when they're in front of you as well as a lapel choke from the top of that position. Drilled in attacking the turtle. Had fun in rolling with some white belts but resisted the urge to go nuts on them, also had an alright round with thiago the brown belt. Was nice to actually land some of the echniques I've practiced recently...I was exploding with things to try out so maybe a once a weekbeginner class would be beneficial ather than just taking the easy way.

It is.

Well worth the hike... tough cardio with an immediate reward at the end.

That reminds me. Was listening to the MMA Hour a few days ago and Kenny Florian was on and he mentioned that he only started taking his mma career seriously after he had a near death experience in Brazil. What was the near death experience? Falling during a mountain climb in Rio. What was the mountain? Pedra da Gavea, same mountain.

All you can eat sushi, mine paid for by eating a near golf ball sized ball of wasabi, suckers.


BTT today, hard to watch and not jump in there, going to go back for a drop in.

Rain cut me off mid workout. Gym classes are only morning class because of some dumb holiday and I'm too much of a slob to wake up for them.

BJJ

An old rival from my last trip showed up, he's a brown belt now. He's a terrible partner for drilling... lazy, disinterested and spazzy/violent in rolling. I was rolling with him and he told me you can't crossface in bjj. WTF? Also learned that he broke a white belts arm awhile that tapped and he didn't let go. Anyways, I'm going to shit all over his belt for the rest of my stay here, in doing so I will have to make sure he doesn't get ahold of any limbs.
