Noted. How do you know this?



MMA Class

A couple good techniques today that I'm going to try my best to incorporate into my game. First up was catching a kimura as someone shoots in for your single leg, then just pull backwards and lift your leg into their crotch and toss em over you. Can follow into a mount or move to trap their head between knees and finish the kimura.

Other technique was taking the back from guard. Going for a kimura from guard, use that hand to reach under their nearest thigh, pinching their trapped arm into your chest, then slowly hip to the side while keeping tight and start reaching around their back. Once you're hipped as far as you can to the side, pull them at the hip with free arm to drive their side/shoulder to the mat while simultaneously pulling out your other arm. If tight enough this leaves you on their back, both on your sides, with their arm trapped behind them. Easy choke.

Had lots of good rolls with fierce competitors. I got finished with 3 rear naked chokes from three different people, and an omoplata. First day back I was feeling pretty sloppy, looking back I was trying to use too much muscle not enough brain, I catch myself doing that everytime I've lost. Good rolls regardless though. MMA tomorrow.

Quick rundown of diet. I haven't put it into fitday to add up all the calories and shit yet.

6:30
Vector cereal + milk + protein shake
9:00
Granola bar
10:30
2x Chicken breasts + brown basmati rice + steamed vegetables
1:00
Cottage cheese + quinoa + banana
3:30
Protein shake
4:30
Steak + variety of beans/lentils
8:30
Protein shake + oatmeal + banana


Supplements at the moment are whey protein, high potency mutli vitamin, fish oils, and a joint support. I'm cutting out creatine for now because it's making me way too ******* sweaty.

MMA Class

Was a bit of a different class today. One of our fighters Darwin was running class for Kajan and I was enlisted to help out. I lead the warm up, then we did basic boxing technique, jab + parry, 1-2 + parry/block, 1-2-3 + parry/block/block. Then we did simple clinch technique, swimming for the full thai clinch, then did rounds fighting for the clinch with alternating partners. Then we did light sparring with one pair in the middle at a time. I did a round with Darwin and a couple more rounds. Real light, I stayed nice and relaxed and blocked most of what came at me countering with quick light jabs or straights. Aftewards me and Darwins strapped up and did a couple rounds of light sparring with kicks too. Pretty chill class, was nice to spar again.

Tomorrow I think I'll do some shadowboxing, heavy bag, and then both BJJ classes.

Looks like a bunch of our fighters are off representing in Alberta this weekend, including Pele and Thiago. I think it's a king of the cage and at least two fighters are going for belts. I'll take a look around for the results in the next couple days.

I was wondering if, between fitday and sparkpeople, you had a preference? I've heard good things about both.

I thought creatine just made you pee a lot.

For some reason I'm not allowed access to the room at my weights gym that I use for training on my own. Kind of retarded, considering the only bag hanging in there is MINE. **** it. Did barbell complex today instead then went straight to Jiu jitsu.

Barbell Complex (75lbs, 6 sets, 6 reps)
Good Morning
Overhead Squat
Deadlift
Bent Over Row
Reverse Grip Curl
Military Press
Skullcrusher

Did 6,6,6,6,6. Woot. What a battle. 80lbs next time.

BJJ

Warm up guard passes, basic techniques, arm bar, collar choke, alternate collar choke. Dave taught us a cool new one...with hand 1 inside their collar as with any plain old collar choke, if the hand 2's entry is blocked, slide your hand 1 down a good 6 inches, put hand 2 in where hand 1 used to be, then yank them down, pulling the elbow/forearm of hand 2 around their head, clamping against the back/side of their neck. Mean choke.

In advanced class we did a bunch of rounds in the stand up just fighting for dominant positions. I did pretty well here, getting lots of double underhooks, attacking the single leg, and trapping the back. I got to go with Dave and I held up pretty well. For him specifically I was focusing on not letting him get my collar, and when all else failed swimming (battling) for underhooks. Tiring stuff.

Then we did straight up rolling. I just watched one of Saulo's videos on mount last night and pretty much retained everything, so I came in today with the intent of putting it all to use.

First roll, he pulls guard, starts cranking on a collar choke hard, I struggle with it for awhile but block it off, open the guard, matador pass to side, slide into mount, grapevine for a bit, then move into a higher mount. Leaned back and took it easy, riding the attempted hip escapes. Then I started pulling on the gi to try to get a shot at his neck. I eventually get one hand in and clamp down with my elbow. I transition to what I believe is called S mount and start looking for the choke or armbar. Round ends before I commit to anything.

Then I rolled one of our purple belts. He flopped back as if to play open guard, I caught a leg and shoulder rolled past it into side control. He started working to escape right away and ended up turtled, I snuck hooks in and rolled forwards to open him up. Ended up with full back control sitting up. He defended well and wiggled down, kicked out and rolled into half guard. Not too sure what happened next, more battling. He ended up catching me with a quick collar choke. Fun roll.

Got to roll our black belt Dave for the first time starting on the ground. He fell back to his open guard, I looked to do a similar pass as before but got swept. I got half guard on him, battled here for a bit, he turned his hips to free the leg and I was losing it so I bridged in desperation to reguard, failed and ended up with him on side control. He slid into mount, this was actually what I was hoping for because I was just learning mount shit last night. I used the forearm pressure on his hips to keep his mount low, which immediately received props from him. I moved to my side with one leg low and attempted the roll over my shoulder to make space for a reguard. Failed it. He moved his mount higher and I moved to protecting my neck. He was slow and methodical, clearly working for something, I waited until he was leaned over enough and I bridge and rolled him into guard. I'm getting a mind fart now and can't really remember what happened next. I couldn't pass his guard and eventually got choked. It was a great roll though and he gave me praise for my mount defense. Cha ching.

Rolled with blue belt judo girl, had her back for most of it, finished once with an attempted arm bar from mount, she rolls out of it, and into my triangle from guard, I roll her into triangle from mount, then switch to the armbar and finish. Also rolled with a new kid that I just played with in open guard and toyed with him, taught him a few basic things.

Good class. I'm exhausted, but feel great. Rest tomorrow!

I've never tried (or heard of for that matter) spark people. I like fitday for designing diets, but I don't use it regularily because I find it to be a hassle. I just like getting into a habit of eating the same or similar meals everyday.

Creatine makes your body absorb more water, which means you're thirstier, pee more, and in my case especially, sweat more. It's just these hot summer months that it's killing me in, I love it otherwise.

Damn...left my notepad at the gym. I remember doing 8 more than last week in total but don't remember the exact allocation. I'll ballpark it. Great workout for a great improvement.

Going for a swim at the lake, then BJJ this evening.

Blue belted today. It was a huge class so I got tossed 6-8 times.

Warmed up with a ton of jumping jacks, pushups, ab exercises, hip escapes, neck exercises, etc.

arm bar drill, armbar + escape to knee on belly drill, drilled a basic guard break + pass. Then we did guard passes. Did pretty good. Triangled a guy.

For advanced Dave had 5 or so of us blue belts around the mats and everyone else lined up. Starting in closed guard and looking to sweep/submit. Dave told us to relax and focus on being technical. He told me he wanted me to sweep some purples.

Caught a triangle on a white, swept two younger guys, swept a purple, swept a purple, omoplatad a brown. Finally a big blue passed after a bit of a battle.

Then we shark tanked Dave doing the same thing. I just broke his guard open before my time was up.

Then rolling. I had a ton of good rolls today, too many to really go through. I got choked in half guard by the brown who reminded me to not let anyone get two hands on my collar. Also got tapped by a purple with a kimura from half guard after an exhausting roll. I held my own decently with both though and was pulling off escapes/sweeps and keeping a strong base. Rolled a few other people doing well.

Just watched Red Belt the other day. If you can get passed the plot holes and slightly cheesyness, it's the best MMA oriented movie thus far.

Great class. Muay Thai + MMA tomorrow.
