Last year we trained sometimes with a gi but lots of folks can't afford it so we always train no gi now. It's a pretty versatile course in Jiu Jitsu and our instructor himself learns new things every year too, so we're always up to speed on "catch as catch can", judo techniques (especially the art of ukemi), aikido throws and joint locks, the rubber guard, tornado guard, the twister, learning the inverted versions of each submission and every variation that we can. They also started up a kickboxing course there last year, and we've been going to Lodi to learn some Sambo and occasionally spar with Faber and the Diaz brothers. A lot of cross training, but mainly Gracie style Jiu Jitsu from Henzo and Cesar, with a smattering of 10th planet techniques.
Haha, mantweka, im over in methdesto , but wife works in mantweka. Need a chiropractor, lemme know.
I go to doctor Hoogendorn, and he's pretty good at what he does. His father in law was the shit though, kind of wish he hadn't retired but good for him. Yeah, I live in the part of manteca that's pretty much the definition of mantweaka, so many fuckin tweakers and bums pushing shopping carts on my street, guys trying to bum cigs and herb off of me all day, stealing my recyclables, having crazy gang fights in front of my house all the time. You ever go to train in Lodi with the Diaz bros?
