Shadowboxing 3 rounds, sparred 3 rounds, felt alright at best, biggest things to work on is getting rid of the hesitation and throwing in combos. Did some drills on partner jab + kick, 1-2 opposite leg kick.
MMA warmed up with a run and shrimping. Technique was an armbar from mount. Get into high mount with your knees under their shoulders and feet on their hips, grab their arm with your opposite arm, bring knee adjacent to their arm by their head, get other foot up under their shoulder, posting with free arm, take the other leg and come across their face, keep legs tight, pull back for armbar. Other technique was mount escape, just create space, hands on hips, legs high up on one side, big bridge, hip out opposite way, reguard.
In rolling I did alright but definitately not spectacular. I felt ******* DRAINED today. I had a beer today about 2 hours before training, that could have been it. I'm also a little bit behind on sleep and am wrapping up a week of training.
Big news, my trainer's already pulled some strings and I've got a date for my first fight set! June 19th. Amateur fight, about an hour away from where I live. 3 rounds 3 minutes long.
I've also been invited to train at the pro's gym on wednesdays and saturdays. I'm going to have to get saturday's off from work because they start at 2:30. This shouldn't be too much of an issue, and that means I'm down to 4 days a week work which will be a relief.
Needless to say, training steps up another notch. I'm eating, sleeping and breathing that date from now on. No fun. More training, even if it's just light shit. Much more videos. Perfect diet. No drinking whatsoever. Lock down on the sleeping.
My right groin hurts quite a bit. I got kicked alot on that side though so hopefully alot of the pain is just bruising on my hips and thigh. Ice time and a light day tomorrow and sunday.
June 19th, going to do this right! The countdown begins!
