2 hours of sleep, no food, work from 5 til 4:30 but still got in a solid night of training for some reason. All i had was a bar of chocolate and a coffee and I was out the door again.
Worked on basic escapes from stalling guard then head snap run arounds to hooks in. Three of us put in about 100 reps each in the half hour. I think that is how I'll drill from now on, just smash out as many reps as possible. I'm prone to taking my time just going through the motions and I tend to forget movements due to this.
Wrestled 3 rounds. Lazily decimated one of my training partners who I'm starting to get annoyed at. Not because he's an irritating person but he's losing confidence and not even trying. Giving everything up to easy, tapping before submissions are locked in. He needs to find his motivation again.
Rolled with my most bitter rival who did well early, using his size and strength to put me on my back, move to side control and eventually to mount. I ended up in his guard after escaping, he tried to sweep, I passed and took his back seconds before the buzzer.
Then just screwed around with a cute girl, put her in an armbar, made her escape it properly, let her try and finish the guillotine, showed her a sweep.
Not a bad effort considering the circumstances.
Kickboxing was brutal. We warmed up with some skipping then went straight into a brutal fitness session involving a partner, where you do 2 laps around the mat while your partner performs one of 4 exercises. You combine reps to total 70 before moving on to the next exercise. Me and my partner finished early so we were running laps for a good 5 minutes waiting for the others to finish.
We worked on leg checks and counters, luckily for the only time this year I brought my shin pads to a basics muay thai class.
There is an amateur MMA event that got cancelled recently that will be put on February next year. Seriously considering it.
