BJJ

Warm up run and exercises, some drills, standing guard pass, a new guard pass that I didn't really like. In guard passes I did pretty well, think I only got passed once. The rest of the class is rolling and I did really well. Great positional battle with the super hulk white belt that I finished on top. Tapped a good blue with an armbar as well an americana.

Today was one of those days where you drag your ass into the door but it turned out pretty good. I'm hella sore from doing 6 workouts over the past 3 days. Luckily I'm competing in those two tournaments on saturday so I can justify resting tomorrow and friday. Tiger Balms should be interesting. My skill level is blue belt and my weight class is the heaviest one so I'm going to be competing with the big fish.

So competed in the Tiger Balms Gi and No gi tournaments today. I'm a bit sleepy but I'll go over it quickly. **** it was long, I got there at about 9 and didn't get out till 5:30ish.

First was Gi, I ran into a friend who got video, don't know when it'll get up. It's not overly exciting anyways.

First guy up we're in a bit of a pissing match standing and I pull guard (I later learned he's a black belt in Judo - good idea). He stands in my guard, I grab both ankles and try the sweep you can get on amateurs alot, no such luck. He's solid and he hooks and ankle and pops back into a straight ankle lock and rolls. I tapped pretty fast. This guy went on to win his next roll and win the weight class.

Second roll I catch a single leg and sloppily take him down into his half guard. Stretch him out and pass into full mount. Grapevine and get an ezekiel on. It takes like 30 seconds but he finally taps. That puts me into third place, for some reason I didn't get to roll the second place guy even though we both beat the same guy and lost to the same guy. Oh well.

In No Gi I was once again with the first guy, I catch a single leg and take him down, he's got something on me that he uses to end up on top. We scramble, I end up in his guard in a guillotine getting cranked. Tap.

Next guy, same guy I ezekielled. He finds double underhooks and sucks me in tight, I jump into guard before he can take me down. I find the kimura from guard and force a sweep that probably shouldn't have worked, but it did. I find an americana and finish. 3rd place again.


So pretty mediocre performance, but overall I'm pleased because this was the highest weight class in the most advanced division. The guys I was rolling had years of training and professional fighting experience. The guy that beat me is a former heavyweight king of the cage champion, a judo black belt, and I don't know how far into BJJ. But yeah, legit.

Next tournament at the MMA Expo might be cancelled. It was set to take place in the next town over for me called Abbotsford but they were worried about it being overrun with gangsters and that it didn't have the police force to oversee it. So they were going to move it to Vancouver and now it looks as if the plug may have been pulled on that? Hopefully it works out, and hopefully if not I get my money back.

Burpees (5x3 minute rounds, 1 min rest)
1 - 31
2 - 25
3 - 23
4 - 22
5 - 23
Total - 124

1 less than last week, felt real tough today for some reason, probably not eating enough.

BJJ did well in guard passes, managed to tap witha kimura and sweep a purple. In advanced we drilled triangle escapes, turtle escapes, side control escapes. Then we did continuous guard passing with the experienced belts on the ground and the younger ones lining up to pass. Did pretty good here but eventually got knocked out. In rolling I got a few goods round in with a game white belt. Tapped him with a couple things and got some nice sweeps. I eventually ate something to my lip that cut it pretty good though. Good class.

I felt really light headed at some points in the class today, its something Im going to keep an eye on. I got into a walk in clinic the other day and Im sampling an anti depressant for the next few weeks. Theres a few side effects to watch out for so we will see what happens. Muay Thai + MMA tomorrow.

Most antidepressants take 4-6 weeks for you to know for sure how they'll work for you, FTR. Good luck.

Yep, though a bit of research says week 3 is a popular point.

Its the side effects that start pretty fast.

Weird ass day. I've been super spaced out on and off all day. I tried reading today and had to repeat sentences 4 or 5 times before they registered. I actually decided not to train, and then 10 minutes from class said "Don't be a *****!" and booked it out the door.

Missed skipping. Two rounds of shadowboxing. Technique was footwork involving the jab. Stepping to both sides and jabbing as the back foot lands, then circling and darting in for a jab and back out again, then switching directions. Then did a round of sparring, did alright. I felt gassed, I hope this shit goes away.

MMA technique was a mount escape to half butterfly guard, brace hands on hips, bridge one direction, hip out the other way, top leg gets the butterfly hook while the other leg stays flat. Then a sweep from the half butterfly guard, the butterfly hook lifts at their knee while simultaneously lifting with an underhook, the far arm should be overhooking their other arm to prevent them from basing as you drive them over. Then a mount escape to a heel hook...a smaller shrimp out so that you're still under their mount but have basically driven to the side, then your head/torso moves to the direction that you just hip escaped too while the outside leg pops around, and over their leg. Your other leg, which is flat on the ground still, kicks out their knee to stretch them out. Hook the heel with the blade of the wrist and craaaank. The leg that has kicked their knee can come over to triangle the other leg for a more secure hold.

With my mind in the state it was I couldn't for the life of me grasp these, really frustrating. In rolling I had a couple good rolls back and forth, got to work a few escapes. Finished a guy with an armbar from mounted triangle.

Gotta go burn a cheesy 80's playlist that I promised last week for the lady's class tomorrow.

Kajan said I'm definitely not fighting april 17th but definitely fighting may 29th. At least as much as a "definitely" that exists in this sport.

Going to langley this friday because the local gym is closing fridays now. Kajan also wants me to do tuesday sparring at 1pm there as well.

Ladies Kickboxing. Did the circuit with them as well as some burpees and abs. A nap is imperative if I'm getting to BJJ tonight.

Well I didn't get that nap. Frustrating. I pretty much find my motivation to show up for class in my sheer stubborness. Whatever gets me there I guess, it's no coincidence that the highest points of my die are immediately proceeding training. I'll have to watch the fight night and TUF tomorrow. Excited to see what happens with Gomi vs. Florian!

BJJ warm up run, guard pass drills. Bridge and roll out of mount while your partner does a new(ish) sweep. From your guard grab their sleeve with same side hand, other hand grabs nearest knee, your head and torso moves to the side of the knee while driving that leg out, lifting their knee, and pulling the opposite sleeve, almost like an omoplata. Kajan was doing a similar thing in no gi with us recently, except that guy makes it look like a break dancing moving. Other technique was various half guard stuff, which I needed a review on. Flattening them out, walk trapped foot up to their but, shoulder pressure their head away while popping your hip into the opposite direction and baseball slide that leg free. He also pointed out that there's a quick ezekiel from here that's worth at least taking a shot at. Other half guard pass, you switch your hips to face their legs, elbow braced against their armpit and arm along body, basically drive their top knee for space and kick out. If they go for an underhook you can trap that arm by gripping your collar and then using the free hand to do a straight armlock or kimura. That should make sense when I read it again. Finally we did a sweep from half guard that I got the hang of pretty fast. From bottom of half guard shrimp in, head against their hip, get the top underhook while the other hand reaches between their legs and grabs the toes of the nearest foot. Feed the toes to the underhook hand, use your newly freed hand to slide back under your body to give you base, drive the sweep, keeping the grip on their toes so as to prevent them from getting back to guard. I like, but was having trouble putting it into live rolling, worth working on.

We drilled from the half guard position, then shark tanked a guy going to the pan ams in cali, then we drolled. Nothing too interesting happened in my rolls, lots of positions. Good class. I felt real exhausted again today, it's going to be an interesting next couple days. Go go gadget iron will.

Muay Thai

Skipping, shadowboxing, technique was leg kicks..then sparring leg kicks, sparring full standup with takedowns, and then clinch fighting. Good class, felt pretty decent.
