Gringo Class

Had a laid back class today. Technique was attacking the back. Something to note for myself, in the seat belt grip your bottom hand should be on top while holding the wrist, this is because people tend to attack the top hand and when they do you can use the top arm to go for the neck.

The rear naked choke entry was from the seat belt grip, top hand comes across their neck, grabbing behind shoulder, meeting your other hand with a gable grip behind their shoulder, can ghetto choke from here or slide arm through the gable grip and behind their head for rear naked. Some interesting differences for Gerbils rear naked, he likes to grab behind his own head as opposed to their head, and then look up with his head to tighten it. As part of this, it's very important that you keep lots of pressure and contact form your head to his. He also emphasises getting their chin in the crook of your elbow to hit both sides of blood flow, whereas I was taught to attack the windpipe.

Next was a sneaky way to get the arm across for the choke. As they pull down on your attacking arm, salute straight out nazi style and sneak your other arm across their throat.

Finally was an armbar from back. From the seat belt grip, grap a wrist, two on one. Then switch to a kimura like grip, one on their wrist, the other on yours. Keeping this grip, create space back and to the side as you bring your elbow from below their head to a crossface. Throw the leg over and armbar.


Brazilian Class

Technique was backstepping off mount to side control, then a knee on belly, baseball bat grip on the collar, spin off into north south and sprawl to choke.

In rolling I got manhandled by a purple and manhandled by a brown, but I managed to manhandle another purple, submitting him with an armbar from mount and an arm triangle from mount.

An interesting thing I found out at the end of class was that rounds were 9 minutes long. I've been kind of discouraged in my fatigue lately, but I don't think I've properly taken into account that I'm not only outmatched, but doing enormously long rounds.


In other news, while writing this my training partner tells me that Kajan said they want me to fight in October in Vancouver. Apparently they saw some video and are "in love" with me I think this is a televised event, but I have no idea of the details. So we'll see as we go.

Had a little lunch date at Barra Shopping today, one of the biggest malls in Brazil. I'm having some difficulty gauging interest level in this one, so we'll see if this one plays out before I leave. The good part of this is it forced me to wake up at a reasonable hour, which has been a major issue for me. I have decent discipline when it comes to eating and training, but I am an absolutely awful sleeper.

BJJ, technique was hip throws and double leg takedowns. I was super close to not going to training today because my lower back and arm were giving me problems yesterday...so of course we do full on hip throws, and of course sambo guy locks eyes with me to pair up. Very fortunately for me, he was very good at hip throws and my back feels fine, perhaps they were chiropractic hip throws. I want to show you guys Sambo guy, because I'm really amused at how stereotypically Russian he looks.

Seriously, he could be the third Emelianenko brother.

Anyways the technique for the hip throw was to block the inside of their arms as they throw punches, head in their chest, first arm that blocks reaches around their back at the hip, other hand I believe grabs a sleeve. Then you need to drop your level a bit to get your hips under theirs, turn your back into them, bump your butt up to lift them off the floor and then twist and throw with your arms. Was alot to learn at once and brand new to me, so I had mixed results.

Technique today was from grip breaks in closed guard. First one, break a grip, drag it diagonally across your body as you hip out to the opposite side, recompose guard somewhat at the side of them. Then take that arm you dragged and feed it across their face, reaching behind their head to hold it. Then you can open your guard again and complete taking their back.

Second technique, grip break, your far arm pulls their sleeve all the way behind your head, nearest arm feeds through for the overhook and takes as deep a collar grip as you can manage. Hip out towards the overhook side, and use your free hand to grab at their shoulder and attempt the choke. When the fails you can kick out their far knee to flatten them out, move the overhook slightly further down the arm onto the elbow, twisting your body to armbar.

In rolling I had a good controlled round with a black belt. I would try to open his guard, try to pass, get swept, get threatened with a submission, given time to escape, rinse and repeat. Then I got a round with my nemesis purple who smashed my head in the wall that one time. Mother****er tried to play guard and I dominated the whole round Then I got a brown who dominated me and tapped me with an armbar and I believe something else. He was kicking my ass with omoplatas today so he took me aside and showed me an escape - grab at your belt with the threatened arm, free hand grabs the pants at their ass, posture up, straightening your arm as you spin and stack them.

Didn't do boxing, I wasn't feeling phenomenal by the end of class. I'm doing a tournament this weekend and have lots of little aches that I'd like to get better beforehand.

Afternoon class

Armbar -> triangle -> armbar -> sweep -> side control drill, 3/4 stack passes, side control escapes, and did a 10 minute round for a short but intense day. Taking it easy until the tournament, going to do a private tomorrow still though.

Phew. Guess I have a bit to catch up on but I'm in a bit of a rush, my last UFC in Brazil starts shortly. I'll get the burpees that I just did out of the way and then talk about the tournament today, and then I'll do Gerbil's private yesterday in a seperate post.

Burpees (5x3 minute rounds, 1 min rest)
1 - 35
2 - 29
3 - 27
4 - 26
5 - 23
Total - 140

Surprised myself and beat last week's by four, just two short of my all time best. Lifting tomorrow if they're open.


The tournament. I lost my first match, and it's all my fault. No excuses, I felt healthy, awake, ready. The guy jumps guard, I take my time prying it open, make it to half guard. We struggle there awhile, his sweeps fail. I finally get across, however I don't stabalize the position for points before he rolls to turtle, first fail. I feebly attempt to attack the turtle as he rolled out and in a scramble I ended up in a mounted triangle position. I wasn't clear if I get mount points for this position (I don't unfortunately) so I sat there for a few seconds anyways before I moved to an armbar from mounted triangle. This is where the second fail comes. Instead of staying on top of him when going for the armbar, which is the wise thing to do because even if you fail you keep position, I took the arm and then tipped over to my head. He locked his hands and scrambled up and stacked me, freeing his arm and getting his arms under my legs, stacking and driving. He gets past my guard, scoring the only points in the round and traps me in side control for the last 30 seconds or so. I lose. Simple mistakes that I don't normally make cost me a win on points and a win by submission. Not a hard loss for me though, I'm healthy, I know what I did wrong and won't **** up again on...end of the day its just another BJJ tourny. No video camera's were around, sorry.

Things are kind of falling apart back home.

Last week my best friend and main training partner back home blew his knee out in sparring and is going to be out of training for months.

Yesterday I found out that Kajan, my coach, was fired by the gym over some personal reasons. Kajan was the most talented, caring, hard working, and charismatic trainer/fighter under our banner...So I'm not too sure what my move will be when I get back in two weeks.

I was feeling really crappy yesterday, those burpees seemed to drain my body an unexpected amount. My sleeping schedules been way out of wack, but it's back on track now. 2x BJJ today.

First BJJ today

Just drilled some stuff, sweeps of choice, then armbar->triangle->armbar->sweep, then I practiced back taking from half guard top, then transitioning between side controls, knee on belly, mount, finishes from mount.

Two weeks left. I weigh 89kg today...whatever that is.
