BJJ: We went over knee on stomach and how to transition to each side and different variations. It was interesting to see Sensei Derek Cleveland transition back and forth and around and to see how smoothly he could do this. As an instructor I am very judgmental about other instructors. I watch them with grueling eyes to see if they know what they are talking about. I will admit in his game, he is very good at what he does. He is methodical and teaches so that a beginner could learr, but still that a long time ground fighter is not bored. I have found a person that has very good technical skill.

Muay Thai: Muay Thai today was set up for the fighters. We did sets like "rounds" of a UFC fight. We worked combos 1-4 the first 3 minutes, the second three minutes we worked on combos 1-4 in whichever order our partner called it out, then the third three minutes we worked on whatever combos our partner called. (jab, jab, hook etc etc)

I noticed that my kicks are getting pretty darn powerful. I love that Muay Thai has a focus on one kick. Yes, this means that someone could just watch for this one kick, but in all honesty, the combos are set up so nicely that you wouldn't know what hit you. It's weird to me to have a "set" way of doing punches where I am so used to flowing and doing whatever comes natural. This is definately a winner in my book. Not only am I learning a good way to distract and take my opponent, but I am developing speed and power behind these blows making them so powerful that if I was to hit someone, it would knock them out. I will continue to do my best and then ask Derek if I can fight.

I asked about Gi training and Sensei Derek recommends it. If I had the time I would do it, but I just do not. DARNT
