    Yep, all true. I've never heard that they taught him that 1 move though, and considering it's a semi-common BJJ move, i have my doubts on that.

    But the Kuk Sool Won association is kind of a shitshow with good marketing claiming that they have "secret" techniques, or the only "complete" martial art. REminds me a lot of certain Gracies actually.

    We broke away from the main association a number of years back because of their trying to control how we ran classes, what we charged our students, not allowing students to compete in open tournaments, things like that. (KSW also does not allow their students to do full contact sparring, we do)

    Monday: Trained BJJ with an old friend of mine and her new boyfriend. Who happens to be a 4th degree blackbelt named Roger costa. Awesome training, got some tips for my knee in guard passing too.

    Wednesday: 1 hour Kuk Sool

    I'm right at 210 and holding steady, i'm expecting to be 200 even by the end of the month, if not a bit lower.

    It's not a "literal" tomoe nage. More of a mix between that and sumi gaeshi. But both feet are on the hips, bring knees in almost together, kick forward to get them posted out/up on their feet. Then as they drive back in, scoot underneath and sweep.

    Absolutely. It'll get back there now that I finally have some motivation/fire again.

    Specifically, the first 15lbs came like 2 years ago... was hovering around 185 and had bulked up a little bit. then slowly rose to hover between 195-200 over the next year.... and then Hurricane harvey hit, completely fucked our home (luckily we saved most of the stuff inside of it, and hte people/animals of course). So i was living with a buddy of mine for 5 months...and i put on 15-20lbs during those months just from eating like absolute shit, not working out, and being just depressed as shit overall.

    That's all back there now. Time to kick some ass again. I gotta stay ahead of all my students! lol.

    tweeked my UCL yesterday in BJJ. but went today anyways for a bit.
    bench: 135x3x10
    Dips
    Tricep extensions
    Flys
    (nothing else cause of my elbow botherin me).

    Pullups
    pulldowns
    Rows

    didn't have much time, so got in and got out.

    floating between 207-211 right now.

    lost a total of 10lbs in March. Didn't get to train as much as I'd like towards the end of the month (bjj/kuksool wise) Cause of my boss being out of town....taught 35 hours worth of classes last week covering for people lol.

    DB ohp: 40x10x3, 30x10x3
    Dips: 5x10
    Tricep extensions
    Delt raises
    Lateral raises

    Helped a friend of mine with her squats. She got up to 85x5 today! (she weighs about 120, and never done any weightlifting in her life prior to a month or 2 ago)
