Thanks.

BJJ

5 minute warm up. Technique was a standing guard pass, grip their sleeve with same side arm, your other hand grips their lapel at the chest and clamps down over your first hand for a strong grip. Swing to the sides as you get up to a squat and then stand up, keeping the grip on the sleeve while the other hand pushes their knee as your body twists. Once it opens, come down, knee slides over and shin staples their leg to the mat. Also did a few attacks from side control. Instead of attacking the opposite arm we learned a few attacking the nearest arm. The one I liked and will look for is starting in scarf hold, attack their neck with forearm to get them to reach up, push the hand forwards toward the mat as if to americana, except its your nearest leg that hooks around their forearm, other leg triangles on it, raise hips to finish. Pretty much an americana from side control except with your legs and attacking the adjacent side arm. Also interested in playing around with the floating armbar. Scarf hold and gripping tricep securely, post with free hand and top leg, sliding bottom leg across their chest and hooking foot under their armpit, kind of like a knee on belly but it's knee on chest and their arm is trapped tight. Leg comes over for armbar. These techniques are getting harder to go over.

For rolling today I got sharktanked like 10 minutes. I flew through alot of people but it was lots of white belts and chicks. Lots of scissor sweeps, hip bump sweeps, a kimura, 3 triangles, and an omoplata sweep. I didn't stick around for open mats because by the end I was exhausted and my right elbow was aching. Muay Thai with Kultar tomorrow.

4) We want to see pictures of the ink. What did you get?
1. All over it.

2. I looked, but I couldn't find it. I'll try to get it in my next fight :P

3. True

4. I don't have a functioning camera. I got the words "This too shall pass" in gothic type lettering starting at the front of my shoulder and running halfway across my chest. I love it .

Thursday - Muay Thai
Skipping with squats/pushups/situps between rounds. Shadowing combos on command 1 through 12. Various combos on the pad working off counters. Me and my partner drilled ******* hard and were yelping battlecrys by the end of every round. Kultar said we did good, but not fast/powerful enough. I don't think it's ever fast or powerful enough. Had a great class considering I was running on 4 hours of sleep.

Friday - MMA
Warm up with various acrobatics, Kajan had us do more combos off of counters. Then sparring. I was dominant but nothing too great. I wasn't feeling too awesome today, I've been very underslept all week. I'm on day 8 of completely quitting caffeine and it feels like I'm in withdrawals...either that or its outside stress keeping me up. Either way I get a good sleep tonight and I'm confident if I stay off the caffeine and have a regular sleeping schedule, it'll balance out soon. Major elbow soreness on the right side, old pains coming back already.

Kajan gave me a date for my fight. April 23rd in coquitlam. I googled it and there's a couple sites mentioning it as the finals of tournament, with the possiblity of more than one fight in a night (wtf?). There's also mention of there being only 30 seconds on the ground, as well as it being televised. Kajan didn't tell me any of this so it could be something else, we'll find out as we go.

Lifting and BJJ tomorrow.

Deadlifts 6,6,5 @ 225lbs
DB Bench 6,6,6 @ 80lbs
Weighted Chin Ups 6,6,6 @ b/w+15lbs

Felt stronger today. 5lbs to squats, 40lbs to deadlifts...failed on the very last deadlift due to grip failure. Finished all other sets and went through the ab circuit twice. Trained all 6 days this week. Same thing next week except I gotta squeeze burpees in somewhere.

BJJ

Warm up drills, instead of guard passes it was side control escapes. Did decent. In advanced we sat around and went over alot of the rules and the scoring system for the upcoming tournament. Then the competitors got shark tanked from side control and guard. Then we rolled. I got an arm triangle on a big blue. I'm having trouble finishing collar chokes, can't seem to find the neck. I usually just go for collar chokes to fake and get access to their arm, but they don't buy it and just dig their chin in instead. A couple other back and forth rolls, nothing definitive. Good class, muay thai + mma tomorrow.

Muay Thai
Skipping, shadowboxing, boxing combos, boxing sparring. I did alright, though one guy bullied me for most of the round.

MMA
Guard pass drills, BJJ preperation for the upcoming tournament. Rolling from a stand. I was dominant and controlled everyone.

I'm stressed the **** out again from the same ******* girl. Unbeleivable. I guess it paid dividends in training, but not nearly worth the ******* mess my head contains.

I don't ever, ever, ever let my significant other mess with my training. I'm nowhere near your level or caliber, either way I know you'll put that drama in its proper perspective soon.

Just look at your ink "This too shall pass."

I'm curious about your jump rope intervals. My instructor went abruptly from 2-3 min intervals to 9-10m and I am having to ice my left achilles tendon a lot as a result. It's a small thing but it interferes with my running, which bugs the shit out of me.

I love training when the outside world is a mess, it's therapy. However, I seem to have delicate sleep patterns right now and the current issues have taken their toll. It's not only difficult to train after sleeping 2-3 hours and working an 8 hour day, it can be counterproductive doing strenuous training without proper rest. But you're absolutely right, this too shall pass.

I don't know what to say about your achilles tendon. My leg issues with skipping were always shin splints, which with time I was able to work through and now they seem to have strengthened to a manageable degree. It's also strange that it would just be your left foot, maybe the way you skip is putting more stress on your left side than your right? Other than that I'd look into finding a more relaxed method of skipping if you haven't already.
