Thanks man!

Beginner BJJ

Warmup drills, technique was a near side armbar from side control, then a transition to turn it into a kimura. Also worked a side control escape.

In rolling I got rounds in with the two purple belt instructors, spent most of my time on the back and mount of one of them. The other spent most of his time in my guard, but fell off for a heel hook instead of passing. Also rolled a white belt that basically spazzed out on me. Starting from our knees he tried to get a collar choke on me while we were still upright and, I guess, he tried to throw me with it. Anyways I ended up on top of him while he reefed on the choke, passed to side control while he was still trying to choke me out. It was tight but obviously thats a pretty inferior position to choke from. Spent most of my time on top of him, took his back but he escaped into my guard by the time the end rounded.

Only one class today but it's my 6th class this week already so I've got a good pace. Body's achy but alright. It's record breaking cold here right now and I got a nasty nose bleed at the end of class, probably won't be the last.

Hit the pads 5 rounds

Then did no gi advanced with bibi.

Technique was a guard pass from stand. Step in with on leg, same side arm is used to strike then reaches out and around their far leg to open up the pass. Also learned two butterfly guard passes, both start by stepping one knee out and over to the other one in front of a hook. Then the outside leg steps over the hook, then as they hip out to the side your inside leg can take mount. The alternate version is one knee out and over to the other on in front of a hook, and then hop over to side control.

Two tough rolls with a very good purple belt, got tapped once. My roll with Bruno our brown belt ended early when my nose started bleeding like crazy.

I noticed that you went to Thailand and Brazil, how much did these trips cost total? (individually ofcourse)

I mean training, housing, food, extra curricular activities.. EVERYTHING?

Including flights from Vancouver

Brazil was about $7000 CAN for 3 months.


Thailand was about $2000 for a month, would have been cheaper over a longer span.

and I am assuming both trips were an amazing learning experience?

Did you find that expensive because honestly $7000 for 3 months seems like a do able price...

P.S sorry your from a less awesome province then me

I have family in Ontario and am out there every year, B.C. is better =)

Yeah, both were amazing. If the fighting thing doesn't work out I'm going straight back to world travel.

I'd say the overall experience of Brazil is better but as far as cheap training, Thailand is unbeatable.
