IBJJF 2016 Atlanta Winter Open Tournament Report
It's been a few months since my last competition, Master/Senior Worlds in Vegas, and I've been training quite hard. I decided almost at the last minute that I was going to go ahead and compete at the Atlanta Open. That that end I start working on my DLR pas...

Get Wristlocked! WHOO!
The last time someone successfully wristlocked me prior to today was 2013. That's despite multiple attempts in multiple tournaments, including Master/Senior Worlds. Today my homie Chris got me with one. I was quite proud of him. I tried a sweep that he surf...

Three in one Week!
For the first time in over a year I managed to make three classes in one week. The official class on Monday, then a couple of open mat sessions Tues and Thurs for a total of 6 hours of training this week. I feel surprisingly good physically. Not at all as b...

This will be one of the random non-training related posts that occasionally pop up on the blog here. The reason that this one is popping up is because of a book called The Combat Code s . The author contacted me via /r/BJJ and asked if I would give it a rea...

Couple of Weightlifting Goals Achieved

Upper Belts, Lower Belts, and Earning Submissions
This is sort of spawned by a thread  from /r/bjj and sort of spawned by me earning a pair of submissions against my instructor this morning. I use the word "earning" very much intentionally, because I didn't 'submit' my coach. I was able to generate a situa...

Post Christmas sessions
Managed to sneak in a session today between Christmas and New Years. Did some jits-with-hits for the first time in YEARS to help one of the girls we have who is training to fight MMA. She's a former gymnast who is about my same size, and she is a good deal ...

Wristlockery
Got into the gym for early morning class and it's No-Gi December this time around. We worked some posture drills that Chris picked up from the BJJ Globetrotters camp he went to last week and then some solid no-gi pressure passing. Did some closed guard posi...

Continuing the Grind
Squats and Deadlift are still where they are, making progress on my bench press is incredibly difficult. I cut 10lbs to go out to Las Vegas for Master/Senior Worlds and I haven't gained any of it back. I lost in the first round, had a great time, won a poke...
