yeah, I practice subs on my girl, but she's not the most willing participant. It's mostly just for fun. Anyway, I decided to join that gym I was talking about, and I have to take back everything I said about it. I heard some ugly stuff about the guys there, and I'd seen some of them fight in the local fights, a couple of which are pretty heavy into drugs/dealing and whatnot. However, my trainer is awesome, and the guys in the club are good, and clean. A few have rough backgrounds, but training and fighting is what keeps them out of trouble and motivated. I can't say anything bad about them, and I feel bad for judging them without checking the club out first. I'm feeling so much better about my skills after every single practice, and I'm hoping to fight this summer. My trainer is actually the guy who puts on the local shows, so that's pretty motivating.

There was a guy here who trained with Pat Miletich and crew, who was an awesome coach, but he moved out of town (he actually worked with Rich Franklin when he visited AK & fought in the AFC). I learned a lot from his training, but I'm back to solo training in boxing and jiu-jitsu. Actually I do have my girlfriend, who I practice submissions on. As fun as that can be, it's just not cutting it for me. I have weights, a heavy bag, and lots of room to run, bike, whatever for cardio. Does anyone have any suggestions for my training regimen? We have the Peninsula Fight Challenge, and the Alaska Fighting Chamionship, which I'd like to get into eventually. +Rep for anyone who helps me with this one.
Training solo can be okay at some point (with proper basic). As much as possible,you would want to do sparring simulation like with a punching bag and a Grappling dummy (ex: Submission master dummy or any other dummy) to work on your ground and pound. It may sound costly but it can be wort it if your on your own.

Yeah, I do use a punching bag as a dummy (because my broken-down shed where I hung it was taken down). It's been a while since I posted.. since then, I figured out that the people at the club were methheads, not crackheads. Minor correction there. However, the new trainer at the club is awesome, but too expensive. Still solo.
