2018.12.03PM; jiu-jitsu...walked to the academy, assisted with the beginners' class, then played four rounds of guard (closed and knee-shield half) and walked home.

The yoga is helping, so I made sure to do a series of surya-namaskar before bed to shake off some of the residual tension of training.

Aloha!

HOTTTFIYAH fi mi gilet jaune.

2018.12.04PM; jiu-jitsu...walked to the academy for class.

Showed up, there was a Master's world champ, three other black belts, assorted other students, and your feline servant. Class was an hour of De La Riva passes and then rounds. I focused exclusively on pulling guard and reversing.

Man, I'm too spent to recount them but it's really, really great to be training with all kinds of great grapplers again. The world champ guy is from Japan and is a former Shooto champ if that gives you any idea of the quality.

Walked home feeling stoked.

Aloha!

2018.12.06PM; I saw this little quote accidentally today and it gave me some courage to face the day. I have had insomnia the past two nights, getting up at 2:30 a.m. and not being able to go back to sleep. It's not fun and I'm kinda in a fugue-state.

I did some light dumbbell bodybuilding just to pass the time: pressing, curling, rowing, raises, etc.

2018.12.08AM; jiu-jitsu...Saturday class, attendance was pretty thin due to heavy rain.

The class itself was excellent, attacks from seated guard: collar drag, arm drag, attacking the back with collar and rear naked chokes, both top back and rolling through.

I personally worked a related topic: loop choke from steated guard off the collar drag, and then sweeping or coming up depending on their reaction to the loop choke.

After that was 5:00 rounds with the young folks and then some more drilling.

Now I'm off to take my wife to Guns n' Roses at Aloha Stadium.

Aloha!

2018.12.10PM; jiu-jitsu...walked to training, did an hour of sweeps and armlocks from guard with a big Samoan kid, and then 4 x 5:00 rounds of sparring before walking home in the rain.

Later in the evening I did 10:00 of Surya-namaskar B to loosen the body before bed. That and reducing the booze seem to help with my sleep, so that's what's up.

2018.12.14PM; jiu-jitsu...class on various armbars from the guard, then half an our of 5:00 rounds. I was working almost entirely from collar and sleeve, tripod-style open guard, trying to mimic Kron's relentless attacking style.

Afterward, I did an hour and a half hiking. Since I woke up on Saturday morning my left shoulder has just been in agony; it has me a bit depressed as any time I think whatever is the problem is fading it comes back with ferocity.

Bleh.

2018.12.18PM; jiu-jitsu...was a bunch of hammers out tonight. I think I sparred with more black belts tonight than I ever have before, so that's great, if not for the ego :-({|= .

Class was done as various drills broken into 6-minute blocks: grip break, torreando passes, etc. each building on itself, so first the pass, then reaction to common defense of pass, and so on.

After that was positional rounds and then open mat. Basically, I can take down most of my peers and put them on their back, but I am not very effective at passing some of the new guards, particularly when my go-to over-under pass is shut out, so that's something to focus on.

I was beat by the end of training, but I'm taking the family to the Big Island for a week over Christmas and can rest then.

Aloha!

Actually, the volcanoes haven't been this quiet in a long time so the air quality was really excellent.

Instead, I took my son to the park, he skated, I ran Kanewai x 2 miles.

2018.12.29AM; a 2 hour morning hike and then a couple of hours of jiu-jitsu in the afternoon.

Class was a variety of interlocking sweeps from closed guard, based off permutations of the situp sweep and the flower sweep, with a guillotine and trinagle entry mixed in when the opponent resists the initial sweep.

Finished with three or four rounds of sparring and then ran off to host a dinner party for visiting friends from Japan and England.
