Warm up run, wheelbarrow plyos. Technique was single leg takedowns against a person of opposite stance, it was real nice to have a class of takedowns geared towards me. The first single leg was pretty simple, trap the leg with your head on their chest, and back up in a circular motion. The second was a bit trickier, stepping out and pulling them towards you, reach across the front for the double, step inbetween their legs and bring your back arm high on their back to tip them.

Technique on the ground was more stuff from "half-back". A basic move to grab the wrist and ground and pound. Then another to trap their closest heel by stapling it between your closest knee and foot, then grab their other ankle so they're basically stuck and then get swinging. Finally from half back we learned to roll them in while the hand thats on their hip comes up into an arm triangle. I think I've got a firmer grasp on arm triangles and might start sinking them more often.

We rolled from a stand in the clinch. First guy I went for a single leg but he sprawled. I eventually recovered and took mount, and eventually his back where I stayed most of the round and gnped. Tried to rnc but couldnt get to his throat. Second guy was in my side control and half guard most of the round. I kept trying to reguard while trapping his arms so he couldn't punch, but I couldn't improve my position. I finally snuck out and took his back just as the round ended. Third guy was a younger kid so I took hi down lightly, mounted, then starting helping him get out of mount, take me down, etc. I still armbarred and triangled him though.

Class over. Fun stuff. My shin splints won't **** off.

Our instructor left to go compete somewhere for the next week. So the purples/blues took over. Started with a 5 minute warm up drill with partner, then some pumelling. Too lazy to go through the technique. They covered alot of tricky stuff today and I doubt much stuck. In guard pass drills and rolling I did pretty well. Notable moments include a couple armbars, and rolling with a purple and for the most part staying compettive and avoiding harm, though I did get submitted once or twice. I found myself in a position to use some techniques from my Dvd sets but I couldn't pull it together. I lack the mental fortitude to absorb all this information and put it into use right away, so I'll be watching lots of reruns.

Muay Thai

Warm up run, combos on pads and kick sheilds...some more random shit. I hurt myself in a few places today and have now had 2 shitty thursday classes. I might be ditching this class to do my own training. I'm going to see if I can use the bags at my workout gym when they're not running their class. Also gotta get my partner working with me, but he's still settling back into training under our MMA gyms full schedule before he starts more work outside of it. I'll probably be training tomorrow, only thing really holding me back is a toe I re-sprained today. Almost there.

Practicing a few moves while moving forwards/backwards. Drilled a couple combos. Finally got some sparring in, just two 3 minute rounds. I did alright, looking forward to getting some more in. Definitely need to and want to pay more attention to my stand up, the focus has been grappling for these past few months. I'm limping from shin splints . Rest tomorrow, then I'll probably do my barbell complex on monday. UFC!!!

most shin splints are from calves that aren't limber enough, stop and stretch them out more. I get shin splints a lot even though I stretch out my calves, I ice them and they're fine the next day.

I always thought it was because your calf is disproportionately stronger than your shin. Any specific types of stretches you recommend? Come to think of it, I don't really stretch my calves at all.

It depends how limber your calves are to start with. You can lean against a wall, put your legs behind you and balance on the ball of the foot on the side you want to stretch, but be careful how far your legs are out behing you if you have any issues with your back. If you sit with both legs out in front of you like you were going to stretch your hamstrings, point your toes and lean as far forward as you can; this will stretch your shins a little. I like to balance the ball of my foot on the edge of a treadmill or some elevated surface and (balancing myself with any nearby surface) stretch my calves out one by one. A marathon runner also told me that writing the alphabet in the air with your big toe a few times a day was helpful for this type of thing.

P.S. Your "sharktank" is exactly the same concept as our renduri, only we don't roll unless it's TKD sparring (olympic rules and therefore full contact).

Noted. I'll be stretching them daily, thanks!

5 Min warm up drill. I'm getting really bad at retaining techniques. I got the hang of most of them but they seem to be in one ear and out the other because I only vaguely remember them. Meh. Rolling was decent, Was dominant with a few, and 2 of my rolls I got dominated by more experienced white belts.

MMA tonight.
