Recent visitors to my website, my BJJ blog, should have already seen the following changes. I’ll be doing less traditional blogging and will do more microblogging, through my new Twitter account, grapplr. This is mostly due to the fact that I’m finding it harder and harder to find the time to write – my posts [...]

I need to be more like this (the hunt part): In the same way the cheetah didn’t stop until its prey was dead, I should keep going 200%, no matter what my opponent does until I have a good position.
(non-BJJ post) Haven’t been to the jits in a month! Here’s what happened: First, I missed a class because of a social activity – a friend’s birthday party. I caught a cough, most likely during the party. I’m not going to roll with a communicable disease and so missed a few classes. As the cough [...]
Evening gi class, two hours. I came late and sat at the side during the first class. Lazy and tired, I didn’t even warm-up. The second class, which I took a part of, started with heavy drills which quickly revealed to me how out of shape I am. We moved to a standing guard pass, [...]

Early afternoon gi class. It was the only one I had gone to this week. I’ve just been busy. I moved this week from the place I’ve been renting for over six years to the place my fiance has owned and been living in for about four years. Packing up took a long time and [...]
While browsing through Youtube, I found this video…Just thought I’d share: …And just about every BJJ video on tying the belt that I saw after had the same method (finding the center of the belt). That method is not how I tie my belt though – I don’t like it because it doesn’t look as [...]
I’ve been rather busy lately and haven’t trained or blogged as much as I would’ve liked to. And so – - given that I’m over a month late for my January goals, I’ll just do a quick review. And since I didn’t even make any goals for February, I won’t do a review for that. [...]
