2009.10.24PM; jiujitsu...woke up, went to the office to do some school work, then hit the academy. Rolled submission wrestling for about five matches with a young and talented blue belt, but the size and experience deficit mean that he struggled with my kimuras, achilles lock, and headswitch. Even so, he hit some nice moves and wasn't doing anything really stupid.

After that I had a strange experience. I was watching this big blue belt that I train with N; and N was rolling with a visiting Korean white belt. N went for a omoplata and the Korean kid rolled through and came out on top. So when they were done, I offered to show N some options from the kimura entry. He says okay, and I thought nothing of it because I train this guy all the time. So I get down to show him, and he basically purposely disrupts the technique that I am trying to show him by throwing me off him since he was sweaty from rolling. It's rude but I dismiss it. I try to show him something again, and does the same thing with a smirk on his face. Then a third time but I anticipated it and went after him, smashed his face, and trapped him in a headswitch and toehold and yelled at him in front of everyone while he tapped like a blind man's cane. It was crucial because he was trying to punk me out in front of people, worse yet visitors, and I can't sit idle and allow that. When I got off him his face was bloody and everyone was quietly staring at me, but I then gave the guy a very loud lecture on manners. What an asshole.

After that I made him wrestle, and lose, three more matches before I split. I know I have a short temper, and usually regret things like this, but honestly I know I was right this time. Fuck that guy.

Aloha!

2009.10.25AM; went for a six mile hike in the morning light filtering through the trees, it was so beautiful it instantly lifted the week's stress from my shoulders. When I got home I was feeling so rejuvenated that I hauled out my brand spankin' new, pride of Shanxi barbell set and did the following workout. Since at last I have an adjustable barbell set, I am starting from scratch (yet again) with the Iron Man Barbell Course No. 1, two sets instead of three, to let me adjust to the bar.

1. Press 2 x 8 @ 95 lbs.
2. Curl 2 x 8 @ 55 lbs.
3. KB Floor Press 2 x 8 @ 2 x 54 lbs.
4. Bent Rows 2 x 8 @ 95 lbs.
5. Squats 2 x 8 @ 95 lbs.
6. Calf Raises 2 x 20 @ 95 lbs.
7. Leg Thrusts 2 x 8

Aloha!

Fats, is this an island thing? Not just your reaction, but the dude's initial douchebaggery. You've mentioned similar incidents in the past, and I have a very hard time imagining it happening at Carlson's or other BJJ schools I've been at. I could see a very new guy pulling something like this, but that's probably it. And I could see him getting sternly verbally corrected the first or second time it happened, but you guys seem to have non-isolated incidents where somebody got bloodied over insults.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

I don't know because I have never trained anywhere in the US except Hawaii. I have trained in Brazil and Europe, but that was a different story and I was the visitor. I think Hawaii people are more down to fight probably; big fish and small pond sort of thing.

Every Hawaiian I've been with friends with personally (not that many...I'm gonna guess with three dudes) was down as hell to fight at any second over just about anything.

2009.10.28PM; jiujitsu...taught class tonight. Spent an hour and a half working together on ways to overcome an opponents who want to stall the fight in a standing position by using grips to passively or actively hold off your takedowns.

We worked on ways to swim inside a stiff lapel grip and get a bodylock and trip; or how to wristlock an opponent that won't stop trying to fend you off with a collar grip.

I showed them Relson's bonelock when he graps high on the collar or epaulet like many Judo players like to. I don't believe the move is legal in Judo but it is in GJJ and I demonstrated it to them by paralyzing a 245 lbs. giant as soon as he laid a hand on me.

Finally we got to the substance of the class which was the two on one, or Russian tie: how to get it, how to take the back with it, what to do when you take the back or how to respond when he resists the initial attempt. I learned the two on one from Randy Couture himself, and it is my favorite, along with the front headlock. These two positions are the friend of the slow grappler like me. In short we covered the valley drop, the foot block, and Relson's street suplex from the back; then we talked about what happens when the guy resists and tries to wrest free his trapped arm. This includes the grapevine chinhook, the ankle pick, the knee block, the sit through fireman's carry, the wakigatame, and the switch to the double leg.

It sounds like a lot, but I tried to tell it like a story, describing the reticent opponent and the ways he might block attacks, and then how to cope and move past his pathetic defense. Mobile warfare son.

Aloha!

Can you describe this? Google doesn't say shit.

Sounds like a cool class. I hated how judo grips seemed to neutralize my wrestling tie ups.

Steve, it's a tough move to describe. Basically you lay your left forearm over his right forearm, then clamp your hands together and pull it down and into you as you walk toward him. I imagine you are confused, but I don't know how to do it justice. You are trapping his lower arm between your body and your forearm, assisted by the other hand.

2009.11.02PM; I worked all day, delivered an address all evening, then came home at 9:30 and did this little number before dinnah. I am introducing new twists into the IMBB No. 1....first I am switching to the flawless Monday-Wednesday-Friday format. Second, I am introducing a Heavy-Light-Medium wave, where the heavy day is three sets, light is one set, medium is two sets. I will continue in a double progression of reps 8 to 10, then add weight. Today was also the first incremental increase in load, +10 lbs. I also will be rotating Pilates movements for the abdominal work at the end.

So here it is:

1. Two Arm Press 3 x 8 @ 105 lbs.
2. Two Arm Curl 3 x 8 @ 65 lbs.
3. KB Floor Press 3 x 5 @ 2 x 72 lbs.
4. Supine Grip Bent Rowing 3 x 8 @ 105 lbs.
5. Squat 3 x 8 @ 105 lbs.
6. Stiff Legged Dead Lift 3 x 8 @ 105 lbs.
7. Calf Raise 3 x 20 105 lbs.
8a. Single Leg Thrust x 8
8b. Double Leg Thrust x 8
8c. Criss Cross x 8

...am now retiring to roast beef and potatoes, salad, and a Beaujolais-Village 2007. And a spliff.

Aloha!

Gato, what keeps you from working with Indian clubs or a mace? I remember your endorsement of the CB was one of the things that got me into them originally.

The clubs and the mace are fine, I just prefer to do this for now. Because I keep the grappling as a constant, I like to cycle through other things just for fun and to keep things fresh. I have been considering possible doing a season of free squats, pushups, mace, stonelifting and pullups. Possibly next summer.
