If you wonder why I keep track it's because I like to remember what I have done in class. This way I can look back and see what I did in the past a remember everything. I recognize a word with memory of movement. This is why Kenpo has names for it's techniques like "Seven Swords, Raining Claw, etc.
Eleventh Class:
Submission Wrestling
Today we covered the half-guard and how to get to the persons back. When we get to the persons side, they will more than likely wizard us. We can "limp arm" out of it and go back to back control, or we can half limp grab the persons wrist and swim under and bridge them until it becomes a sweep.
We practiced this for awhile and for some reason I couldn't put this together. Mind you, I don't need to do everything right in order to win. It's like highschool wrestling. A person can become good at four moves and be unstoppable if they are great at these moves.
We went live from half-guard, live from butterfly guard,, and then class was over. I have been dehydrating so I was totally worn out. I drank a half gallon of water in one drink it seemed. I knew I had to because Muay Thai would kill me if I didn't get something to quench this thirst I have.
Muay Thai:
We worked shadow boxing then we worked elbows.
Elbows are my favorite next to knees.
He showed us how to open up, protect, and execute a right elbow. It seems most of the time I wanted to plow through it, but I have to realize that I need to pop back so I can be ready to take a blow too.
Then we switched into right elbow, to left elbow. Then to right elbow, left elbow, right knee.
We also worked some combos which Ill add to the combo entry.
Then we worked cardio.
Cardio wasn't as hard for me today. I don't think I pushed it. My shins were still hurting from the last time I trained and it hurt to kick even the soft bag. So I dogged it because Im a wuss. Afterward I told my partner that I am never taking that bag again. It's too easy to dog it.

After class I asked Derek if I could use Lions Den name in the BJJ tournament and he said no. He seemed reluctant and that's fine. It's his school and I will not disrespect him. He's a good teacher and he does things for a reason. I guess this means I'll have to go independent and win. I am sure once I win he will see things differently. Now if I lose, then hahahah to me, I suck and he was right.
