IDK if this is because of MMA becoming slightly more mainstream, or if they're inspired by the female fighter, or they want to take class with their husbands/BFs or what. I do know that the majority of them work very hard and while they may not aspire to step in the ring/cage in actual competition, they love the sport.

Most of the time they take a backseat to the guy who are going to compete in terms of physical mat space and instruction time, which is discouraging, but understandable.
My caliber? Please, I don't have a caliber yet, I'm very much a beginner in this sport still.

The girls that are interested in fighting are encouraged to do the men's classes. We don't have any active female fighters at my location, though my trainer Kajan's girlfriend has done a couple boxing fights.

Lifting
Squats 6,6,6 @ 235lbs
Deadlifts 6,6,6 @ 235lbs
DB Bench 6,5,4 @ 85lbs
Weighted Chin Ups 6,6,4 @ b/w+25lbs

AB Complex
Weighted Twist Crunch 20@45lbs
Reverse Crunch 15@25lbs
Cable Crunch 20@75kgs
AB Plank 1:40

Upped weights on most things. Good lift day, though I only ran through the ab circuit once. Knee feels sketchy but held up fine. Shoulder was feeling good today so I did upper body too.

Went to jiu jitsu right after as they were shark tanking one of our guys. After was just rolling. Was on a purples back most of a round. Fought a blue belt in half guard for a round. Tapped a white belt with an ezekiel and an armbar. Went against the same blue as before and got a kimura from reverse mount. Good class. Body is sore but otherwise alright.

The prescription sleep aid I've been taking is called zopiclone. Has worked pretty well putting me out, but I worry it's effecting my cardio...I seem to be exhausting faster than usual. We'll see as time goes on.

Got a new order of supplements today. Just an update on what I'm on

-Whey Protein Blend (cheap stuff)
-High Potency Multivitamin w/Greens
-Creatine Monohydrate
-Fish Oil (liquid stuff)

Is there an advantage to taking fish oil in the liquid form as opposed to the capsules?

Burpees (5x3 minute rounds, 1 min rest)
1 - 31
2 - 25
3 - 22
4 - 22
5 - 21
Total - 121

7 Less than last week. Maybe I did miscount last week. Maybe these prescription meds have affected me. The sleep has been worth it.

BJJ. Drilled guard passes. Did average. I did get a pretty cool omoplata sweep that was completely unexpected on a very strong white belt. Advanced class was review on some side control techniques as well as getting the kimura, which I liked and will work to add to my game. Very similar to Kajanas no gi method of getting the arm triangle from side control....Side control, switch hips facing towards their legs. Arm reaching under their far shoulder and gripping your collar, other arm is pulling their nearest knee up. Keeping weight, move back into a typical side control position, and then keep going, sprawled to keep weight on them while your knee plants on the other side of their head. Bring second knee up to trap head. Bring first knee up behind the kimurad arm, but not higher than their armpit. Finish Kimura.

In rolling I started off pretty weak, but picked up the pace. I got tapped by a blue belt today for the first time in awhile, he had north south and did a simple collar forearm choke. Also got tapped by a purple with a simple collar choke while attempting a standing guard pass. Moral of the story is to learn a north south escape and protect my neck better against higher belts. I did well against a different purple belt, though he kept interrupting the roll to teach me things so I dont think I can really count the americana or armbar that I got. I also tooled on two white belts with a plethora of the usual submissions...I also did a successful test run a sub from a Saulo dvd...a fancy collar choke from back. Saulos DVD also gave me a good little revelation today, cant get through the chin to their neck? Pull on their forehead with the other hand. So simple.

In other news, they`ve asked me to take on a morning kickboxing class and in return they`ll waive my gym fees. Works for me. I`m going in next monday to do a class with the usual guy and then I`ll be taking over wednesdays. Gotta be up at like 5:30am to start class at 6:00 and then rush over to my job for 7:30. I`m contemplating going down to 4 days a week at my job to make up for sleep due to the money I`ll be saving. I`m not sure, maybe I`ll put the extra money into Brazil. We`ll see.

Speaking of Brazil, I`ve looked more into it and think I`ll be using a site called Connection Rio to work everything out. It seemed to work out pretty well for This guy who details the trip in a big log.

The gym is Gordo`s Jiu Jitsu with Professors Roberto "Gordo" Correa/Rommel Cardoso. Gordo seems pretty legit, and it`s all nicely worked out for tourists to fly in and get training. So it should be good. The guy says that gym offers muay thai and boxing classes as well so that`s a bonus. I chose Gordo`s in Rio over Gurgel`s in Sao Paulo mostly because of a lower cost and I`d like to be able to walk to a beach

So I`ll be doing that early June. Probably about a month, maybe longer...we`ll see how much of a financial detriment I feel like bearing.

Muay Thai

Skipping, shadowboxing, boxing combos, sparring, body shots against the wall. Got to spar with Kajan today who was clearly taking it easier on me but still pushed me pretty good.

MMA

Tumbling, technique was pendulum sweep, the armbar there, and the armbar defense. I'll run through the pendulum as I understand it, from guard, grip a tricep with same side arm, other arm reaches to their leg, lift their leg as you kick you legs out...in a pendulum motion I guess, and sweep. God that was an awful explanation. I'm going to keep trying to land these so I don't forget it. Kajan also showed me how to sweep when getting stacked in the armbar by reaching to the outside of their far leg you can drive them pretty easily and finish the armbar either belly down or in mount. Guard passes were easy, so was rolling until I got a round with Kajan. Once again he was going lightly but we had a very back and forth round. He's really good at being just slightly better than you.

Kajan didn't sound to optimistic about an opponent for me on april 17th so that might be scratched. It might be for the best because my head is a mess right now.

I was in a horrible mood today at work. Maybe I took too much of that Zopiclone shit...I was determined to stay off caffeine and it resulted in the most ******* miserable... almost violent mood today. Not good. Trialing a different one called Trazodone, it's meant to be an anti depressant but can be used as a sleep aid if taken only at night. We'll see.

Might go out to Langley tomorrow to train at the new gym, or maybe just stay in chilliwack see what I'm feeling. My body's already got the aches.

Missed training today. Body hurts.

The Trazodone didn't do anyting. Gonna keep with Zopiclone at a half dose and try to keep it down to 3 nights a week.

Hopefully Kultar is back for Muay Thai tomorrow.

Muay Thai

Kultar was back which is nice. Skipping. Technique on the pads, just broke down 2-3-kick and 3-2-lead kick focus on the details and then put it together. Pretty much hit those pads for an hour which was nice. Finished with 10 minutes using it on the partner and then 6 minutes of alternating 1-2 punch out drills on the bag. Good class. Feeling good. Kultar had a few bones to pick with my form. I'm leaning in too close need to be tall. Hands are too low. I'm raising my elbow on the left straight. My hook shouldn't be coming from so low. I'll make an effort to tighten em up.
