BJJ

Checked out another gym, this one called Evolucao Thai, run by a couple brazilian guys with a bjj/muay thai heavy schedule. They're a reasonable distance from my place, and also didn't sales pitch me so I'm pretty happy about that. The class itself was pretty small with mostly blue belts and a couple purples. The instructor wasn't there today so a purple ran class instead. We did kimuras from side control, north south and bottom half guard and then rolled. I rolled a purple, getting tapped to a bow and arrow. Same thing with a good blue belt afterwards who tapped me with a triangle but I was at least a little more competitive. I was offered another trial class when the instructor is in so I'll aim for their friday no gi class.

BJJ

The gym I was looking at joining was apparently having issues with the head black belt so it looks like it's not a good option to explore. I signed up with what I believe to be the best BJJ gym in the area. My only reluctance in signing up when I first tried it was a) I've been super flakey on training and still sorting my life out in a new city b) I wanted to see what else was out there first and c) I wasn't sure they offered a membership type that I was good with. Anyways, I went back to find out the membership options and am now signed up for 7 months. Did my first class today and everyone was friendly and welcoming.

Warm up stuff, technique was a basic guard break from knees and immediately setting into half guard keeping them flat on the mat, then basically working the leg up and out for a shortcut to mount. We drilled from closed guard and I had a nice back and forth with a white, and managed to pendulum sweep a purple. In rolling with the white I got an omoplata and something else that I forget. I did pretty good today but am definitely very rusty. When I did a trial class here I got absolutely smashed and I expect that's going to be the theme of things for awhile. Good to be back!

Kettlebell Turkish Get-Ups 1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1@50lbs

Just doing singles while I learn these, the weight is much heavier than ideal so I'm being careful before attempting sets. I am getting the hang of them though. This is alternating sides, doing the get up but not reversing back down. Hard wood floors make it extra fun...was getting scrapes galore until I put on a rash guard.

I've decided I'm going to go to Montreal for UFC 158 on March 16. I'd love to meet up with Kajan and do some drop in training at Tri Star if things aren't too crazy busy there for GSP and Rory's fight and my fitness isn't too embarassing.

BJJ Tomorrow!
