It'll likely depend on your extra curriculars. Maybe $4000ish?

Fighters class muay thai

Yeesh what a day

Skipping, drilled combos back and forth, including clinch work, did ALOT. Then we sparred for like 5 rounds, then he took turns doing pads with everyone. I was on the bag for like 10 rounds before I got to go. I finally got to get my kicks going and even just two rounds with him I have a lot more confidence and better idea of I need in my kicks. Good, hard day. Kajan said there's MMA sparring at 5 but I'm ******* toast for today. Back at it tomorrow.

Technique was a tricky move I hadn't seen before, Bruno showed how to hit it from butterfly guard, getting mounted, and attacking the de la riva guard. Not going to go through them because quite frankly they're not really going to translate into words. Lots of rounds with all blue belts, won my rounds but tapped to an ankle lock or two.

No Gi Beginners
Helped teach and tried the moves out a bit myself, an attack to break turtle, a butterfly guard sweep, and something else that I forget. Rolled a bit.

Muay Thai
We had the class split in half with one half holding pads/sheilds/mitts with the other half drilling non stop 1:30 each with 7 stations. Man that was tough. Then just clinch sparring.

Good day. Less than 6 weeks to the fight, less than 2 weeks left at work.

Missed class again on friday, this week has had some quality sessions but two lackluster days of missing class. I blame my job, stress, sleeping problems, and a girlfriend. Going to book an appointment to get back on sleep meds when I go to get my medical paperwork hopefully next week. My job finishes on Dec 14th, so that should help put things in balance until the fight is over. I got in today after work to do some conditioning. Tried a few new things today to help put together a good full body routine.

Tire Flips 1,1,1 @ gym length and back (18 flips per set)
Rope Climb 1
Pushup Burpee to Chin up 10,10
Sprawl Deadlift 8,8,8@45lbs
DB Clean + Squat 8,8,8@50lbs

Ab Circuit
Decline Twisting Crunch 20,20@45lbs
Reverse Crunch 15,15@15lbs
Cable Crunch 20,20@160lbs
Plank 1:30, 1:30

Neck Circuit
Forward Bridge 1:00
Handstand Bridge 1:00
Backward Bridge 1:00

204lbs 11.1% bf
198lbs 10.7% bf
198lbs 9.9% bf
201lbs and 10.5% bf

Weight is slightly up.

Today was a promotion ceremony for our BJJ. I've heard rumors that Bibiano's is leaving us in January, which is a brutal blow to our team. Two of our brown belts got promoted to Black, as well as a few other belts were administered. I couldn't go because I have a job...but here's a pic of the team anyways.

Technique was a sweep from deep half guard when they try to pass the de la riva. Glover sweep I think it's called? Anyways, I didn't get much time to work on it because I got called over because the gym owner was showing this beast of a man around and needed some training partners for him. He was about my height and 270lbs of muscle. So that was fun. Me and Bill and Rob took turns doing rounds with him. I'd try to break his guard and come around and he'd launch me with a leg. In my guard I was pretty much useless too. It's definitely interesting to roll someone so much bigger though, hopefully I get more opportunities to, it sounded like Rob will be giving him privates and might use me to do them. I'll have to get a picture =)

In normal rolling I got a couple rounds in with bill. I did well with a hip bump sweep and kept mound for a round. Next round in my guard didn't go as well and I wasn't able to do much. Afterwards Bill was telling me the most underrated thing in amateur MMA right now is elbows to the body. When they're controlling your wrists, grab one with your hand and the same arm comes over with the elbow. He said it takes awhile to get the power into it, but your throwing your whole shoulder into it and aiming for ribs. I remember in Brazil having a guy do this to me and it was hell. So I'm going to practice that on a bag now.

Warm up drills, sweep was pendulum sweep. A couple differences I noticed when Bruno does it. First, he likes to cup the arm at the elbow and trap the hand at the hip, while I do an overhook. Second he brings his far leg all the way around, as if he were going for an armbar, swinging it for extra momentum. I'll give this fine tuning a try. Had another good roll or two. I wasn't being rough but I just murdered a newer guy of decent size.

Boxing
Shadowboxing, drilling combos, sparring.

I felt terrible today, very little energy. Made it to Advanced BJJ, we did stuff from X guard, a sweep, an armbar, a knee bar and a back take. Rolled a few blue belt, he felt strong and good but I managed to take his back and finish with a bow and arrow and take his back again before the end of the round. I got called over to get locked in the cage with the 270lb super hulk and a Hell's Angels black belt, sounds like the start of a bad joke. Rolled the super hulk, started in guard, broke it, managed to pass into half, snuck passed and held mount. Almost finished with an arm triangle when his super hulk nose started to bleed. Then the black belt jumped in with me, I pulled guard, he got passed after awhile into side, I fought off a north south choke the he eventually adjusted into a head and arm choke form north south, to which I tapped. Then I rolled with one of our fighters, a purple, I pulled guard and attempted a few different things to which his base was too strong. I risked a scissor sweep and tried to adjust to a reverse scissor sweep when I couldn't kick out the leg. Too late. He passed into a side control in which I wouldn't find the way out of until the end of the round. End of class.

I feel terrible, both exhausted and weird aches, fingers, thumbs, knees, ankles, neck and one really weird one that feels like a big bruise at the bottom of my spine.

Today was a bit better.

Got to the doctors today to pick up my medical for the fight. Looking at it now, I don't think the proper blood work results are shown here and I'll have to make another trip back to the home town to correct this. But I did manage to get some proper sleep meds that won't give me a hang over the next day.

While out in the hometown I dropped into the gym for BJJ, worked some technique and got a couple decent rolls in. I dominated our newly promoted brown belt (albeit he's much smaller than I) and even had a full arm triangle sunk in, but I let go of it to go back into mount. I've never really been in that position before, but I didn't want to tap him out. Promotion is a funny thing in jiu jitsu, it's a nice reward for your effort but at the same time you feel the expectations raise as well. I think this is mostly in our own heads; we fear that we can't live up to our belt and therefore aren't worthy of it. This is why I let go of it, getting a new belt is a transitory time and I like the guy and really gain nothing but making his time more difficult by tapping him.

I've been secretly a little afraid that I might get a purple belt. There's only a chance, but I was in no hurry to go to Bibiano's promotion day, and will probably avoid the Chilliwack one that I got invited to. Kind of rude, but yeah, I'm of the belief that you should get your belt when it's overdue, and right now I don't feel that it's due yet.

Advanced BJJ

Worked some technique from closed guard, breaking posture, arm drags, threatening to take back and then going for an armbar. In rolling I did very well, my sweeps were working for me today, won all my rolls againt good competition.

Unfortunately at work today I slipped awkwardly and twisted in a weird way, pulling something in my ass. It's a really weird place to hurt, right below my left hip at ass cheek is really sore and tough to move. It really started to act up in rolling but I saw through it. Unfortunately a bit of stretching didn't seem to fix it so I couldn't even walk without a limp, nevermind do muay thai today.
