BJJ

Was a real small class today and Grimshaw was teaching class today.

5 min warmup drill, did lots of work from the different positions of side control, then drilled trying to escape while the other person tries to hold it down or submit.

Advanced class was lots of fun stuff but it's kind of blurry now... a couple sweeps, a collar choke, I got him to teach us a bit about escaping leg locks.

Got to roll a couple rounds, but I felt a sharp pain in my left knee and had to stop. It still hurts now, don't think its serious but it may be pretty stiff tomorrow. First day back and this shit, wtf.

My sides or ribs or whatever feel much better now. Only hurts when I'm getting thrown, and I rolled with a 300+lb guy today so I think that's an adequate enough test. Hopefully the knee feels good and I can train tomorrow, I really need to get fully into this.

Thanks dude. My buddy didn't show so it was sweet to have someone experienced to roll with. Thanks for the support!

Went in to hit the bag. Got 3 rounds in before my knee started to hurt. Turns out it's not fully recovered. **** my life.

Conditioning
(1 min rest between rounds)

Burpees
5 rounds of 2:30

Heavybag
3 rounds of 3:00 Boxing only
3 rounds of 0:30 Punch out drill (1-2)
1 round of 3:00 Boxing only

Burpees were fun/torturous as usual. Added :30 seconds from last session and one more round. Keep in mind that although the duration is improving, I'm in no way going at a constant pace the whole time. My goal is to build up the time slowly, and once that's adequate, I'll be counting burpees and looking to improve the pace everytime. Burpees seem to be safe on the knee which is very good news.

The heavybag session was borrowed from Ross boxing. It was pretty fun and I can feel the difference those punch out drills make. I did boxing only to avoid aggravating the bum knee.

Yesterday I went to our local mma event to watch. Nobody from our gym was fighting but plenty of the guys that train where I do my conditioning were. Was a pretty entertaining show.

There was alot of really shitty sportsmanship from a few fighters. The two big ones being a guy that won via armbar but wouldn't let go when the guy tapped, the ref was reefing on the kids neck to make him let go but damn it must have been overextended for at least 10 seconds extra. Not good at all, the armbar zealot lost via disqualification, which seems fair. He could have just been in the zone and not realized what he was doing, still, it's important to realize you can't do that and discouarge other people from doing it. Another guy won his fight via tko but when the ref pulled him off he tried to get back in there and swing more. Crazy. That fight in particular was the only two fighters there near my weight division, they were 190, so there's a good chance I'll encounter those guys further down the road. Me and my friend are driving out to Vernon next weekend to support two guys from our gym. Watching fights live seems to be good motivation and should help build a bit of familiarity for my own.

Overall I feel pretty good at fighting at this level. I know I can do at least as good, and for the most part better, than any of those guys.

I also found out recently that the event I'm fighting at had a shooting after it's previous one. I knew this already, but what nobody told me was that the guy that got shot is from our gym. He lost his fight and was shot in the leg by some people that got away. What an ugly ******* world this is.

Anyways, knee feels good but I don't trust it. I'm icing when it hurts and stretching twice a day. It seems to be fine and I have a full up and down range of motion, but if I twist it funny it has sharp pains and loses mobility for the rest of the day. I'm confident it's not serious but I'll be staying away from aggressive grappling and striking involving kicks until it gets better. More conditioning can be just as useful anyways.

BJJ

Warmup run, drilled a couple guard passes, drilled armbars, drilled kimuras, drilled armbar escapes, drill, drill, drill. The techniques taught today were pretty tricky. I didn't grasp them well enough to explain.

First roll with partner I was dominant in mount but didn't finish. Second roll with a big blue belt I was dominant between back control and mount. He did his stupid triangle on my ankle and made me tap as he has before. When I got his back again and he tried, I wised up and shoved my foot deeper so he was trying to triangle my shin, finally figured that one out. Third roll was back and forth between all positions but I was probably on the losing end. Got tapped by something, kimura maybe? Fourth roll was a chick so I took it easy but got 3 or 4 subs. Class.

Knee feels fine. I'm paying special attention to it, but I think it'll be hold up since I don't have to kick anything until friday's class.

Good to see your knee is getting better. What is the date of your fight?
