    Tuesday
    Rounds on the bag and low kick the pillar for 40min

    Wednesday
    Loose bag warm up then gi class with main man.
    Moving to back of turtle:
    Have control of uke's upper body> sweep one of their elbows inward and drive opposite side knee into the space> backstep to come to side.
    Half nelson anaconda with lapel and uke arm in:
    Have control of uke's upper body> sweep one of their elbows inward and punch same side hand up under uke and into collar> drive knife edge of opposite hand behind under uke's armpit and weave behind their head> the momentum of these movements plus will help death roll to other side> you are now facing uke with head and arm trapped and a collar grip> shrimp hard keeping your chin on top of their trapped arm> drive 'weave' hand hard behind uke's head and maintain collar grip for choke.
    Shin on neck arm bar of turtle:
    If you are hip to hip with turtle dive for far side arm and pull using kimura grips> dive near side leg over and up under their belly> pull far side leg up and drive shin down onto the back of their neck> swap grips so this side arm has control of their arm> get grip of uke's near side either pants or belt> granby onto shoulder near uke's head forcing uke to roll with you> slip 'shin' leg over their head to complete straight arm bar.
    4*5's and a 4 =24 min rolling.

    Thursday
    Deads, same numbers as last week: 2*8@50 plus bar, 3*5@80 plus bar.
    5*10 hanging leg raises.
    5 down chins=35, need to do amrap next time.
    As little rest as possible between sets.

    Friday
    Gi class with main man
    We do two sweeps from half:
    Kick knee shield up and reach across for uke's far sleeve> loosen knee shield and punch uke's sleeve to this side twisting their torso> post other hand/ head and use momentum to come up to half.
    I forget the majority details of the second sweep, the end was pulling uke across your body at right angles and doing a reverse roll coming to side control or in their half, you could possibly use the steps above to set it up, I do remember that the down knee had to slide through and the up knee created momentum for pushing then pulling uke across your torso.

    We roll for 5*5's, this week I roll for 49 mins.......

    Monday
    5 decent rounds with 50 crunches in the rest

    Tuesday
    Some bag and then no Gi class and gi class
    No gi tech is.. defend the single> swing foot to outside and make shield against uke> get underhook of that side arm> push their head down and away> come to the side> donkey kick leg free> keep under hook> swing other hand under chin and pull uke back into you getting darce grips> keep pulling chin and snap/ drop pulling them to turtle> if they attempt to posture change to gable> ensure your elbow is hard into your side to diminish space> drive their trapped arm past their centre and to the outside of your far knee> sit back into full guard for guillotine.
    Colors stay in and whites sit out then swap, I get 3*5's.
    Three gi sweeps using spider, de la riva and lasso.
    I get 6*5's in so that's 50 min rolling.

    Wednesday

    Deads: 1*8@40, 1*7@60, 3*5@90, a couple of singles of 70 off plates.....
    Some farmers walk with KB stretching fucked elbow, 5*10 of hanging leg raises, some bridge using rope to assist alternating with crunches, some guard play on the wall.

    Thursday

    Open mat with the homies, drill a little bit then roll increasing intensity and round length, I reckon I rolled for an hour and a half.

    Friday
    Gi class with the main man, we do open guard arm bar drill then technique of the class:
    Foot on hips sweep when opponent stands> come up to their collar> they look to block with stiff arm> you trap this arm scramble to top and pass shin across the back of their neck going belly down> trap their near side leg and roll through the side closer to their head coming to arm bar position> pass 'shin' foot over head and complete submission> if legs are above uke's head cross the foot near their head under your other, vice versa if your legs are below uke's head, this way they have to fight both legs to escape as opposed to one.

    We start rounds from standing, I look to close distance with third partner and he jumps guard, the timing is off and I hear a loud crunch, I kiss my medial lig goodbye as his weight collapses my knee, I resist the urge to cry for mummy as coach approaches, the team gathers and nods knowingly.

    Hobble off the mat and go to work for half day, pain, osteo, emergency, crutches, MRI, physio, humble pie.

    ....time to learn bench and overhead seated press......

    Off to see the gp and a surgeon tomorrow, just came here to say FUCK!!!

    ACL is severely damaged, medial ligament is completely detached, MRI found a large cyst behind the patella, hopefully it's a stitching of the medial and a drain which will be eight weeks minimum.

    I'm hobbling around alternating between one and two crutches, the doc suggested a complete immobilisation but I can't afford the splint, I've ordered a strap support with removable bars so I can use it in training later.

    I've got a kettlebell which I'll do upper body stuff with, pull then press, I better start soon, I'm getting soft....

    Update: Surgeon had a chuckle when he saw my worried look, explained what he saw on the scans and that there's no need for surgery at this stage, still need to take it easy but 6 to 8 weeks and I'll be back at Jits.

    See him again in 6 weeks, wish I saw him first without the GP's referral because the GP really misinformed me....silly cunt, still glad it's not that bad.


    Well it's been a little over two weeks and I'm not on crutches at all, the off the shelf brace I bought is great for support.
    Unfortunately I've also done zero exercise.....tomorrow I'm going to attempt to bike the 13 Mile round trip to work....I'm also going to read back through old posts and see if I can find techs that I can implement with a dickie knee.

    Did a bike in today, left shortly after 7am and arrived shortly after 8, I'm picking a round trip will be a couple of hours as Im not sprinting and avoiding hills.

    Another day another round trip on the bike, knee feels like jelly but brace is keeping it all together, quads and hammys are good, pushing a bit harder and taking longer routes.

    Decided stupidly not to wear my brace this morning while on the bike, slid bike out and brace for impact, knee bent inward like a piece of rubber, will have to implement amrap bodyweight stuff this weekend to get back into shape, have been eating really well, am on a diet.............lots of greens and beans and no fat or processed shit.

    Have attempted some body-weight stuff but the weight of my lower leg pulling on my knee is really strange and off-putting, I've had some sharp pain and when I walk around with no brace my knee still has a tenancy to buckle through the sagital plane.......which is a worry.

    Bike is going ok, have also been doing sessions of various curls with kettle-bell and ohp's.
    When I first got injured the osteo said I had a really tight hip on that side, the hip is still tight and feels awkward when I circle, I'll have to yogafy it.
    I'm not sure what I did but my left hand has also had a dead feeling in it since the same time, I cant grip with any power and it feels really clumsy.
    I think I may have semifucked my whole left side and not realised it as I was focused on the knee, oh well, more shit to work on...

    Friday arvo knocked off early and bopped into the gym and did some rounds of basic punching, says hi to coach and try to minimise fuss...he good.
    Also say hi to a few other peeps, being away has really given me a perspective of how uptight and trippy some of these cunts are.
    Its also been great to spend more time with my son.

    Monday morn did the same as above and also had the same feels, slowly slowly doing more calisthenics.
    I also put a band around my knee and used it for resistance/ air squats.
    I'm enjoying boxing, my gym has a boxing for MMA class that I might start, I'll also slowly increase the body weight stuff, slowly slowly...............
    https://howtheyplay.com/individual-sports/How-to-Spider-Guard-Sweep-a-Standing-Opponent-in-BJJ

    Tuesday morn did some curls, ohp, pulls, crunches and air squats, then no gi with the main man, we do bridge> knee in> reguard and overhook arm> pendulum legs to and fro with shrimp> reguard, then roll for four fives. Coach gives me good vibes and welcomes me back as do all other regular partners, so humbling, I pick partners who I trust and they don't smash me stoopid, I mostly frame and reguard.

    Coach hamo advises to do wall sits squeezing ball between my knees.
    Oss and out, I contemplate how lucky I am on the way to work.

    Wednesday my lil dude wants a late night cuddle so I sleep in until 6, do a longer bike to work instead of gym, just as well because the body is a bit achy.

    Thursday bowl in and chat to homies do a few curls and ohp's to warm up, then do no gi class, class is with coach beard so dill, drill, drill, here's the sequence for all, pass and sub options : be low, good posture, down man gives you or you feint to take feet, pull aggressively to get them to fall to their back, one hand controls inside knee, the other slides down other leg to control hip, push knee down and look to two step to that side, if they defend look to lift and drive knee to opposite side to flatten out and face them away, use legs to drive keeping bear posture.
    Option one: drive up hard behind their back with near side knee in between shoulders, get seat belt and get top hook in, pull uke onto you and secure choke arm with own chin, finish.
    Option two: drive up hard behind their back with far side knee, get seat belt, secure top arm with own top arm through and 'answering the phone', other hand secures wrist with monkey, drive knee from shoulder into lat/arm pit, step other foot over staying tight and sitting on uke shoulder, keep arm secure switching to kimura grips, stay tight and fall back at 45 to finish straight arm lock.
    I've noticed their are a few higher belts who either ignore, look irritated or turn their back when I attempt to shake their hand, maybe its a protocol thing? Maybe you're just being a fuckin dick.
    Maybe it's all in my head.....




    One of the brosefs is having a bebe, exciting times ahead.


    Friday warmed up with the usual exercises then do Gi class with the main man, he also got bebe due, #3, he a black belt at havin' bebe's too...
    We do 1) rnc and 2) bow and arrow escapes> 1) fight grip arm at elbow, tuck chin and look down 'through' the elbow, bridge hard and drive weight through their chest, hip escape out in increments in the direction opposite to choke pressure driving butt onto uke's thigh, bridge keeping weigh on uke's thigh and spin into uke's guard....2) fight grip arm at elbow and stretch over head simultaneously straightening uke's arm away, forward hip escaping and turning into guard or side control, remember to keep control of uke's arm or you will be arm barred.

    Then rolled for four fives, forty minutes this week, not bad for a first week back ;)

    Came in for open mat in the arvo and rolled for another three rounds

    Went into dojo for open mat about 2 hours too early, just a couple of staff there, was nice and quiet so did some of my usual warm up exercises with slightly heavier weights and quite a few more sets.
    Also did a few prehabby exercises which felt great.
    Did a few passing drills on the mma bag, felt really fluid when I needed to be and sticky when I needed to be.
    A couple of the homies have scraps this weekend so I'll aim for them when I want a roll as I know they'll be avoiding going hard/ injury pre fight.
    Had a chat to dude about stuff, was good, felt bod cooling right down and stiffening up, back is being a real shit today, knee feels great lolol.
    Said hi to coach, mind and body are taxed when he arrives so I cant give much except a nod and a lol, my mind is on home as well, aim to get up at 5 each day this week.

    Tuesday had fucked up sleep, hot night and both me and my boy tossing and turning, my temper is a little frayed but I managed to suck it in for class, did no Gi with the main man, we drilled classic mount escape/ recover half, I have this one secure in my nog so no need for notes.
    We then did one man top/ one bottom escape and reset rounds then four * 5min proper rolling rounds.
    I tried to apply some top game, passing etc, felt fluid but not a lot of control.
    what worked for me? Kitch jail pass sans Gi, over under? stack and back step, knee slicey thingy up the ball sack, switching knee on belly, need to secure arm with grips when omoplata, cross facery, triangle and spiderweb from mount, almost triangle from crackhead control, all hip switchery including kesa gatami, snatch turtle with arm in triangle.....sloppy but fun, peeps I rolled with also let me jam and took consideration of knee.

    Wednesday did some gentle movement on the mat and some drills on the stand up bag, I saw wrestler homie doing a fitness class with no partner so I held for him for a couple of rounds, dude has a fight this Friday, just as well he can wrestle......
    Didnt do too much, holding pads was fun but I dont hav time to sync up with someone new and do my own shit as well, there are plenty of trainers who can teach too and do it for a living/ need the $.

    Thursday did no gi with main man, we drill guillotine escape: fight choking hand with same side hand and look toward uke, slide other hand under uke's head and drive shoulder into chin/ throat, tripod and walk to opposite side pulling choke arm away, square up.
    Then rolled for four*5's, I focused on passing half, I'm missing a couple of details somewhere which are preventing the pass, I'll have to look back through my notes to find the main man's techniques, one of the coaches from the sister gym has shown us a no gi one as well, here's one that's similar to what he's taught in gi class that I quite like:



    Friday Gi class with Hanuman, he teaches us escape of rear naked which is identical to what the main man has taught us, usually an opponent will respond by trying to keep top position and coming up so we also do deep half sweep that he's taught before, here are more deets: when you under hook the leg make sure you've got decent enough grips to drag uke's hips to the floor, once you have suck their trapped leg back across closer to their non trapped leg, this will help you turn them over easily, you should be able to come to double unders if youre a clever gai.
    Then we rolled for 5*5's and a 4, I focused on top game without trying to crush or be crushed.



    69mins rolling this week, might try and get in to open mat this arvo tooo....happy

    Monday, prepared to do some bag work but jiu jitsu'd instead, had another rough nights sleep.
    Did some pressups, stepups and drilling, also had a quick roll, focused on entering into deep half and 50/50, also attempted pass from 50/50, fairly confident I can get to side control easily.

    When I do the deep half sweep I need to be careful of uke coming to my back, I need to slide a knee away to create some base they cant push against or rather stay in a strong single leg type position where I keep good control of the leg forcing them down with my shoulder, I should be able to come to half and possibly even pass if I can switch my other leg back.

    I like the power of the pass below as well.



    In the night time I do hammer curls with bell pointing out and ohp to give forearms a work.

    Tuesday, main man is with his fam so coach beard took class, we do snap down to high elbow guillotine: start from standing> snap head into arm pit changing from one hand on nape to chinstrap control> push ukes other tricep in and keep control running backward dragging uke to mat> knees off floor drive shoulder between their shoulder blades> step thigh to uke's head> move hand from tricep to chin strap hand> drape outside leg over uke's lower back> outside elbow to ceiling> drag hands together and up toward own chest pinching elbows> nighty night.......it's actually more of a pain choke....also when I turn uke onto their back this becomes a can opener. We then play off the wall sitch drills for the rest of the class, no rolling but I need to work on smashing the turtle and forward hip escaping out and back onto single.



    Wednesday did bike through the rain,did the following in half an hour:
    15*hammer curls with tens-12 pressups-5 chins
    12-11-4, 10-10-3, 9-9-3, 8-8-3
    12*hammer curls with 12.5's-10 dive bombers-5 chins
    12-9-5, 12-8-5, 12-7-5, 12-6-5, 12-5-4, 12-4-3, 12-3-2, 12-2-1
    Wear 10KG vest and do 20*air squat/ 5*pushup *5

    Then check my standing posture and how my knee responds to up downs, a few crunches and single kips, white belt homie and coach hamo have a roll so I squeeze in ten with them.

    Bolted through the rain on the bike and hit a corner, was careful turning but bike flew out from under me, oil slick on the road, fell directly on fucked knee with a smash, knee feels fine thank christ and buddha and all the good cats.

    Nighttime I do Senor Gusto's classes, no gi and gi, plenty of lols all round.
    Also my partner used 100% strength and targeted my knee and knew all the things after 2 classes which was really boring and irritating and fuck you're an egg.
    Anyhoo.
    For nogi we do a nice warm up and then pummel into an arm drag to go by> take back> trapped man fights hands and spins out to underhook on one side and whizzer on other> use whizzer to drive to mat so partner turtles> uke stands to defend> cup their throat and draw hands in for ten finger guillotine choke.
    Roll for 4 rounds, not sure how long, maybe 6min.
    For gi we do judo drills to warm up, have partner by collar and sleeve and mimic footwork, then we drill osoto gari which I sit out. Key details are to do a small step in at an angle then do a large reap with your hip above uke's, punch your collar hand through hard when you reap and straight arm bar at the end finish.
    Coach then does a couple of tricky wrist locks that I wont write down as you have to have the knack.
    Then roll for another four rounds......I'm a bit miffed that I have to yell tap for peeps to tap, I've also chosen some vicious sparring partners who crush my ass when I offer my back for fun, all in all I did ok but will have to split my time dominating and escaping, tonight was tough and I'm sore.

    A little under 50 minutes sparring tonight.

    Thursday morn I do no gi with coach beard, we 'go by' with three finger grip of tricep> other arm has uke's head> switch to palm down/ elbow up and fend arm past you while turning own head away> this will offer the right momentum and angle to come to uke's side/ back end> use arm trapping uke's head to pull them around and down to mat putting other hand in uke's pocker coming hip to hip> use close knee to drive into uke's achillis> drive up behind their back changing to seat belt with S grips> pull on top and through with bottom until arm is all the way through trapping uke's top arm against their neck in a tight triangle> put your ear against theirs and flatten uke to their back and yourself hips down> 'walk' toward uke's head to complete, you can also mata leao with arm in.

    One round with partner and out.
    I rolled for just over an hour this week.
    I ache but it's probably from shit sleep and canning off the bike.

    Friday arvo I do a little bag and try out an escape from north/south to get to uke's back then stretch the pins.

    Monday morn I do a little bag and some press-ups then stretched the shoulders, too many distractions including my busy mind, moving house in a week so I'll be doing a 40km round trip each day on the bike which will go in for a service next Month, suppose I better clean it....I'll do some hammers and ohp's tonight.
    I'm going to start smashing the body weight stuff now, do at least one session a day.
