So today we did the basic warm up. I started with 3 3 minute jump rope sessions and stretching, and than 1 3 minute session of slipping up and down the rope. after that i did 2 3 minute sessions of shadow boxing. after that we worked on countering a jab by catching the jab with out leads hand and countering with the overhand 2. during this we worked on our footwork and worked up a very nice sweat. after three or four round of this we then worked on throwing tepes. we then worked on parrying the tepe to the outside and delivering the leg kick to the back of our opponents legs. we finished with two rounds on heavy bags and tear drop bags. no sparring today.

today we started the way we usually do. 3 sets of 3 minutes jump roping and bullshitting about the srikeforce hw tournament that overeem is going to sweep. followed by two rounds of shadow boxing and 1 round of slipping up and down the rope and occasionally throwing combinations or low kicks off the slip. Than we followed that up with fifty leg kicks but there were so many people in class this day that there were not enough pads to hold so i did my leg kicks on the banana bag. first i did 25 right and than 25 switch left and than another round of the same. Early on in this i kicked when i was standing too far back and slapped the bag with the top of my foot really hard and it felt like i broke my toe. its really bruised now. than we did three rounds of sparring. I was very gun shy and ended up eating a few good shots. I didnt really start throwing anything decent until the last round of sparring but thats okay. i did land a few very solid leg kicks and counters though. In the second round i was trying for a inside leg kick on my partners lead leg and he was trying a leg kick with his back leg and we made foot to foot contact with each other which was excruciatingly painful. im posititive this is going to hurt very badly to walk on for a while.

Today was a fucking work out in striking! we did three rounds of three minutes doing jumping ropes and by the end of that water was pouring out of me. usually im sweating but today was extra bad for some reason. as i jumped i could see droplet of water flying off my forehead and nose. it got no better from there either. we did three three minute rounds of shadow boxig (one of which was slipping up and down the ropes and throwing small combinations in where we can. This was followed by gloving up and wearing the shin pads and working for five minutes with a partner who was holding the large long pads on a a specific combination. he would throw a 2 and i would slip the two and throw a hook, hook, inside leg kick and a two. Im more used to throwing combos in the twos and threes so the few extra steps threw me off a little bit but after i had gotten the hang of it i could do it pretty effectively. Than for the second round of that he got to choose what combinations we worked on and hed call em out for me. im not proficient enough with the propgressive striking drills that he can just hold the pads in the positions he wants me to and i automatically go for them he still has to call them out. I cant remember them all but here are the ones i can

1,2 1,1,2 1,2, slip 2 1,2, slip 2 slip 2 1,2,3,4 1,1, switch left high right 1,2, slip 2 right legkick

we followed this up with four rounds of light sparring. Im definitely not a good striker. that all i can say. we have to go slow and very light to avoid my patended head down eyes closed overhands of doom :lol: people are wary of my right leg kick though as well as knees. its the two things i actually do well and my size doensnt hurt anything either. good class today. was exhausted at the end of it.

Back at it again. This time with Team Quest in Portland. Boxing class last night. its bee nearly a year since my last training so i have to get my gas tank back up to par. we started with shadow boxing and warms ups and then went into a combination drill that took up the rest of the class. It was simple, i could feel how it maximizes power, especially from my "right handed" south paw stance.

Jab, jab, switch jab (same lead) 6 moving forward, 3 moving forward, 2 stepping out (slip) and turn out (ten kan)

its a pretty basic blitz technique with all of the strikes pre-loading the hips and core for the next big power shots. Then a set up for "out of pocket" maneuvering. and back to work.

400 1's and 2's      100 3's and 4's  and focus progressive mitt work.

MMA practice today with coach Healy. Pretty good stuff. We warmed up with shadow boxing and stretching just to get our bodies warm. I like to do fot work drills since i box both south paw and orthodox. I have different techniques that i like to perform from different foot positions.

first takedowns and entries into take downs from both sides. I worked on the high double and worked on not bending my back over and maintaining good posture throughout the technique. Next we went straight into stuffing the takedown and a real technical way to break that technique down and then have the option to spider into nice side control positions. I prefer backpack with a single hook. ive been thinking of ways i can enter into the twister from the dog fight position that is often the result of these failed shot attempts.

Next we worked on defending the double with a guillotine and a nice technical entry into that position. after that the last technique we worked on was guillotine off the hip bump bottom, and abandoning that position for the "100 percent" sweep and mount.

then four rounds of sparring. I was just working on striking throwing good boxing combinations and mixing in inside and outside leg kicks. I through a destructive right leg kick from the orthodox postion but cant do shit from south paw so i end up switching all the time, which will make me very predictable after a while. I really need to work on the left side. But i can box with both sides just fine.

goals: left side
a little mo cardio!
jab, cross, hook, high double
