I think that is the first time I've experienced a true KOB with solid pressure. I do not want to experience that at all from anybody our size, not even worth thinking about the pain that'd cause!

Squat 3-3-3

140-160-180x5

Press 70x5
52.5x12

BJJ.

Jumped into jits for the last hour because i'm heading out for a meal on Wednesday night.

Made it in time for 5x7 minute rounds and then some stretching. The stars must've been completely aligned for me tonight because nearly evrything i tried came off and for the first time ever I subbed Hywel who is a solid purple belt (under Karl Tanswell of SBGi).

This guard pass is working a lot for me, get to combat base after opening the guard then take grips inside the knee on both legs, stand up and stagger legs keeping one leg between your opponents. From here step a leg out wide and square off momentarily before mule kicking the leg between your opponents leg up and back then kicking it through to KOB. This is what I used to pass and then I worked for a hand in the collar, but he got to his knees so I spun off and took his back.

I had hand deep in the collar working for a bow and arrow choke, but Hwyel was defending really well. I thought it would be pointless to spin round and try to force it on so instead I opted to try and isolate his left arm (at this point i'm in kind of an s mount), still with one hand deep in the but hoping he'd forget about that and think about the arm. In the end I locked my legs over the top and finished with a cradle choke. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NvOXeqKhGo

Now not trying to gloat here, Hywel has tapped me out a million times before, but this for me is a milestone.

The more I relax the better my jiujitsu. Wooosah!

Thanks Samuel, BJJ is a beautiful game! If you haven't had the opportunity to try it out I would highly recommend it to anybody. Probably the best thing about BJJ not directly related to the art is the people who do it, it's kind of a brotherhood, the community is absolutely fantastic whether you're competing or not. I've been active in sports for years and have to say BJJ has been the most fun.

WOOSAH Indeed! I can remember every time I tapped a higher belt. It is a milestone.

Thanks Derek, it feels great doesn't it?! I'm more stoked about it than any other PB. Did you see the link that Hywel posted on my FB profile the other day from Matt Thornton? It's an old blog post about the journey through the ranks of BJJ, it's a great article and actually confirms something you said to me a while back about the accumalation of techniques and also solidifying the fundamantals.

I didn't see the link but will go check it out. I love reading Matt's writings.

Easy 1k row, 3.30.9

5 rounds of Nate

2 muscle up
4 HSPU (honest press width and none of that wide sh*t)
8 swings 2pood.

10.18

10 mins on min
3 power snatch, 60k
2 strict pull-ups

max kipping pull-ups (saved about 5 in tank as not ready for a true max) 20 reps.

Ideally the lift+pull-ups would've been done before Nate but the way things worked out I ended up doing the lifts with the class and added 2 pull-ups.

BJJ later on.
