    Decided to start a new log as my old onewas getting a bit long. I have decided to enter a grappling competition and if I can manage to get the time off work a BJJ competition at the end of November. I have been training for about 18 months now and want to try and do as many competitions as I can to get an idea of my standard before considering amatur mma at the middle/end of next year.

    weekly routine will look some thing like

    Monday (am)conditioning (pm)BJJ class
    Tuesday Weights
    wednesday (am)conditioning (pm)BJJ class
    Thursday Plyo's
    Friday Conditioning
    Saturday Weights
    Sunday Rest

    Unfortunatly I can only afford to train twice perweek at the moment but that should change before the BJJ comp. For those that cant be bothered to check my old log my weights workouts consists of a sandbag and a few dumbells. I am planning on using a outdoor plyo routine from Ross Enamait's medicine ball training book with a home made ball I should finish making tomorrow. I plan to use Burpees as the core of my conditioning training

    Monday 3rd October

    BJJ class

    Worked on some basic escapes from side control, knee in for guard or turning to your knee's. The top guys in GBUK were here for a seminar this weekend ( I was on holiday) and they emphasized they wanted strong fundimentals so I think we are going to be working on tightening up the basicas for a while.
    Quite a bit or rolling at the end including doing minute drills, split into groups of 4, one person would roll for 3 minutes against a different oppent every minute. Was lots of fun, especially holding thhe person in guard so the next guy in could run over and put rear mount them ;)

    (oh I know I didn't do any conditioning this morning but I only decided on this plan tonight after training)

    BJJ class

    Went over the two escapes shown on monday, then covered a escape if th opponent controlled both your head and your hips, then a triangle if he had your head an an arm between your legs and an armbar is he had your head and far side of your body. 3 minute rounds at the end again. Towards the end I took a really hard elbow to the face when my opponent went for a kimura from guard. Bot a swelling the size of a egg on my cheek and its starting to bruise a lot all ready. Will try and post a photo later

    Looks good. Maybe add some Jumping Rope, Rope Climbing?, Complexes, 4-5 exercise combo with the sandbag?

    Monday 24th October

    BJJ class

    went through the armbar stuff we did on wednesday and added up some details. ie if they are stood and their weight is backward like they are going to pick you up, then go for the sweep shown on monady, if their weight is forward hook their leg and take them over you. For the flower sweep if the arm is tight sweep them straight into the armbar, if its a bit looser then sweep them and take the mount. If they stack you with the leg behind your arse up adn the armbar is tight you can still take their leg and sweep then instead of the coller choke.

    Sunday 30th October

    Competition day

    There was 6 guys in my catagory, 90kg+ so they split us into two lots of three for a round robin and then the two first place and two second place would fight for medals
    1st fight won my rear naked choke
    2nd fight lost on points
    3rd fight won by armbar, took third place

    had one more fight in the absolute that I lost on points as well. This was the third qualifiying day for a final between all the previous winners in 5 weeks which I have been invited back for. Hopefully I should be able to get the time off work.

    a few lessons learnt
    1) my stand up grappling sucks, need to really work on this. This first match I lost the guy won on takedown points. I also gave up two points for the take down in all my matches
    2)my sweeping is fairly poor as well. i much prefer playing a top game and can get there quite easliy when we start from our knees in class but starting from standing was a lot different.
    3) helps to have your team mates with you. There was one else from my club there is it was a fair trek from were we are based (my home town though so visited parents to kill two birds with one stone)The fight in the absolute I thought I was winning so didn't really push the action and ended up losing

    Thanks for the log again Blandy. Always interested in how you guys are training up at GB Sheff. Well done for your performance at the Tourney. I hope you are pleased aswell.

    I too remember when training at Gb in Brum we did'nt do much sparring starting from standing. It took me a while to get used to it also.

    I hope to start training up there too after Xmas. It's just not really possible to get from Mansfield to Sheff on the bus. Need to get another car.

    Anyway, well done bro! and keep it up!

    Thanks mate :)

    I was really happy with the tournament result, it was my first competition and you cant help but be pleased with a placing :) I aslo met a lot of guys rom GB Newcastle where I am considering moving this summer so it was nice to find some where else to train all ready ;) This was the third competition that the club had this year and they are having a finals on December the 4th for the top 8 from each weight class that I have been invited back for. I am going to try and get to at least a couple of shootfighting classes before then as the guy that runs it has a strong wrestling back ground.

    Monday 31st October

    BJJ class

    Warmed up by jogging round the class and 50 jumping jacks. Then did a ab routine with different sorts of crunches, each student counted 25 each for a total of about 150. Then moved on to Guard passing drill 10 each side, kimura sit ups 10 each side and a drill where your partner lays on the floor, you place your head and hands on the floor and hop from one side of thier legs to the other like you were switching sides while passing guard.

    Moved on to drilling open guard and how to control your opponent, pushing their head to control them while keeping them away from you with your legs, getting your hooks back if they push them off you. Rolled for about 20 minutes at the end

Then moved on to Guard passing drill 20 each side, kimura sit ups 20 each side and a drill where you drop back into a ankle lock and then stand up in base: 10 each side

    Worked on to a basic half guard game for some of the new people. Started with needing to establish a underhook on the side you have the leg trapped nad using the other hand to prevent you getting cross faced. Down low with your head near their knee. Worked shrimping out to take their back, then a sweep similar to eddie bravo's "old school" but instead of just garbbing the foot like he shows you grab all the way round the leg so you are holding onto his upper thigh to stop him posting with his leg

    Rolled for about half an hour at the end

    Monday 8th November

    BJJ class

    Drilled attacks from the mount. Started with the armbar where they stick their arms up and you spin round, fast and loose. moved on to where they are tighter so you pull them up on to their side and slide one knee behind their head then sit back with the leg angled out so its nice and tight. Then covered the triangle where they try to move the foot away from their hp, concentrating on keeping a lot of pressure on them.

    Rolled for 20 minutes at the end

    Wednesday 9th November

    BJJ class

    worked ona few guard passes. First did a standing pass, concentratin on gripping on sleave and top of pants, leg same side as sleave grip goes up first, keep weight of opponents stomach. When standing switch grip from pants to inside of knee, steep back with same side leg and twist to break guard. Push their leg to the floor, pass your same side knee through, tight to their hip, arm grabs round back of their head. Bring other leg through and switch hips to finsih pass.

    From kneeling, both hands on top of pants, elbows in tight against their knees. One of you knees moves to middle of their bum and other goes back and to side to maintain balance. Twist to break guard. ARm goes under leg, keep their calf on your shoulder rather than their knee to defend against triangle. Grip their collar and press your weight on to them. Come round to side to finish pass.

    Rolled for 40 minutes at end
