Another double class with Kajan. I was feeling pretty brittle with crazy neck soreness and something going on in my side from getting taken down too much. Regardless once you get the adrenaline and blood flowing, you push through fine.

Started off Kickboxing 3 rounds skipping. Bah. I love the benefits of skipping and its my favorite cardio, but I'm only doing it once a week and I'm simply not improving. I get streaks of going for minutes straight, then I get streaks of smacking my feet every 15 seconds. I lost my hand wraps and I need some MMA gloves so I'll probably order those along with a skip rope so I can get skipping every other day.

After skipping we did some shadowboxing. Then heavybag rounds while the trainer took one person aside to hit pads with him. Like usual I ended up going with him last and he took me for an extra round to push me. We did jab/leg kicks then straight/leg kicks combos. I wasn't too fond of how he wanted the leg kick...he wanted a huge step to the side and then a kick, which completely ****s with your balance and a slight tap would've put me on my ass. In thailand they always make sure you have your balance and if you don't they'll just push you over. So I went with it and he was pretty happy with me maintaining my power over the duration.

Next we sparred jabs/blocking, then 1-2s/blocking then 1-2-3/blocking. I got to go with the trainer again. I got a bit awkward at blocking the 1-2-3 because I instinctively twist with the punch while blocking instead of twisting against the punch as he instructed.

In M.M.A., warmed up then he taught us a few cool submissions. All of it started from guard. First off an armbar which I really needed to work on. Then the guy pulls his arm out, and you move into a triangle, then the guy levers his arm out to loosen the triangle and you do a very sneaky shoulder lock. Then we drilled doing this jiu-jitsu combo. Pretty cool. Then we rolled. My partner was ******* dieing so finally I got to push someone around. Got an Americana, and a Triangle. Also taught him a few things in the process which I didn't think I was capable of doing. Good class! Thank god I get to rest sore bones and joints.

Might hit the gym tomorrow, see how the body takes tonights damage.

UFC tomorrow bitches

Yet more progress in the gym

Squats 8, 8 @ 195lbs
Deadlifts 8, 8 @ 195lbs
Bench Press 8, 4 @ 165lbs
Military Press 8, 4 @ 105lbs
Chin up 8, 6 @ bodyweight
Cable Rope Crunch 12, 12 @ 180lbs

Did chin ups instead of pullups to see how it does with my back. Another week or two of this, then I'll get onto a 3 day split and do more combat related exercises.

Body weight is 210lbs today. Fluctuate much?

Another day of Jiu Jitsu with wobbly legs this evening.

Jits class. Practiced bridging and rolling when in full mount, then doing the scissor sweep. Went back and forth with that for a bit, then we practiced passing guard while the bottom guy submits/sweeps. I did well passing the guards, and though I didn't submit anyone, I did topple a guy over into full mount when he leaned back too far. Got a scissor choke put on me but besides that I held up pretty well.

MMA class. After warmup we did lots of neck strengthening exercises including neck bridges. I couldn't handstand when the time came. Meh, it'll come. Technique today was working from pumelling in the clinch, passing under an arm and grabbing from the side then slamming backwards or forwards. Drilled that for a bit then we rolled to submission from standing. I did well against the guy I was learning with because he is still pretty awkward with what he's doing. Then I switched off to a bigger guy who knew what he was doing, and then I got rocked and a bit frustrated. That's life.

Noticed my one side has some lingering pain for the past week or so. Not too cool. I feel fine training until I get stretched far one way or another or I get slammed. Which both tend to happen alot on a daily basis.

Jiu Jitsu class again. Apparently someone got choked out in the last advanced class so after warm up today we had a breakdown of what to do when someone is choked out so that they're positioned to open their airways, etc. Then we drilled it (lol). After that we had about 15 minutes to practice passing guard while the other tries to sweep/submit.

I noticed I've been going for quite awhile now and haven't got my first stripe. I guess I'm a bit of a slow learner or maybe he just overlooked me. I don't care about ranking in jiu-jitsu, it's just that a few people have been invited to the advanced class that started after me. Oh well.

My side still aches like my liver or kidney or something is bruised. Gay. I also popped my shoulder while rolling today and it hurt a bit. 2 more days to go before the 2 days off.

Hahah, that's cool you found this. My name's Jesse. I doubt you'd know me by name. I'm the freakishly tall white belt with no stripes, blondish hair.

Yeah, I'm sure that stripe'll come. It's really not the stripe I'm too concerned about, but getting to train more with the adv. class.

Not going to the tournament, I think I'm working when it's on, and have only been going just over a month now so it'd be hard to put up a struggle. I'll get on board the next one though.

I'll check the board out, didn't even see it.

Holy shit, what a class with Pele today.

Kickboxing started off with basically fake sparring with a partner. Kind of risky business since we weren't using gloves or anything. One guy took it a bit too seriously and was punching people. I hate when people have to go 100% and put everyone at risk of getting hurt doing something meant to be light and controlled. Anyways did that for awhile with a bunch of people, felt good to spar someone even if it was just simulated. Then we did 100 kicks on the sheild, then 50 of each knee, then 20 or so of a fake into a jumping high kick, then 20 alternating knees pushing off into a high kick. This was pretty agonizing. Finished with 50 pushups and then he had us run for what felt like forever.

MMA class started 10 minutes later. Was very straightforward, the 4 of us that remained just got on top of a heavybag and pounded away from mount, side control and guard. This was the first time really that I've practiced ground and pound and was pretty impressed at how much force I could get. I basically just thought about the angles and types of punches I've seen in the UFC and worked them into combos. We went hard for a long time, not really having any idea how long we had to go for. Ended up pounding on the bag at full force for 30 mins straight. I was also pretty suprised how everyone maintained their power. I managed to stay pretty relaxed yet still do huge damage to the bag, and wasn't even gassed by the end of it. My knuckles and elbows are bruised though.

My shoulder was really stiff today so I was hesitant about going to class. I warmed it up really well though and it held up fine until about half through GNPing the heavy bag when I popped it on a sloppy punch. Ouch. It's gonna hurt tomorrow so I'll play it by ear tomorrow and hopefully make it through the last day before rest.

yeah.,, that muay thai class was quite the grind...

I was the one that didn't rotate so I didn't get around to the guy who was gettin a lil too serious and crackin people.. I brought my buddy for the first time tonight, and he said he got punched. and I saw pele giving him a real stern warning at least twice. redic..

and as for the hundred kicks, hundred knees, then the flyin kicks... that was just out of hand.
but repetition leads to perfection, and I always hear those wild stories of the thai boxing champions just hitting bags for hours and for thousands of kicks. so I guess theres no way around the tried tested and true methods. u can't help but just be in a bit of awe while seeing pele demonstrate a technique and then abruptly declare, ACTION !

we'll see how fast I can recover here for saturday.. i just wanted to get a bit of cardio going. going, and maybe some video for the website .. but u just get hooked in going there. ... can't help but train.

- brad.
