Marcelo Garcia Video

I like this video because it really shows what you need to do if you are smaller facing a larger opponent. Speed is the key...the second sub on the video is pretty amazing IMO...he is just so quick.

The Long Road Back

Well its always tough coming back after time away but missing two months has made it very difficult. One of the guys that started at the same time I did has gotten his blue belt now and is running circles around me. Im happy for his success but its still painful for the ego. Things are slowly coming back to me but I have a long way to go in the fitness department. I forgot how much rolling takes out of you. Of course I still struggled when rolling before my two month hiatus so that hasnt really changed. My muscle memory seems to still be there as I havent had too much problem with the basics like arm bars and triangles which I have done thousands and thousands of times by now. Some of the other moves that I sed to use I have struggled a little more with. One of my old favorites the oma plata has been causing me trouble. My timing and movement is off a little so I keep getting over powered and rolled back over so Im not getting my momentum moving forward enough to carry them down to the mat. Well I think that enough run on sentences for the day. Cya

I'm Finally Back

Well after a two month hiatus I have returned to the blog. This isn't really BJJ related but I have missed going to the gym for the last two months due to travel for work and buying a new house. So after this long time away how was it going back to the gym, in a word "challenging". I feel like I am starting over from scratch but there wasn't much I could do sometimes life just gets in the way of training. The good news is I still really enjoy the training so hopefully I wont have to take a break like this again for awhile as it really hurt my progress.

Interesting BJJ Training Video

This is an interesting video about learning how to stay connected to your opponent. I think I may give it a try for a few weeks and see if it makes any difference in my game. I don't know if it will add much value and im more than a little sceptical but I thought I would post it to see if anyone else has tried it or if anyone does try it let me what kind of results you see.
