I am only just getting over a week of migraines and no sleep, it really did feel like I didn’t sleep for a week.
It drained me and it was quite alarming, I only missed two lessons but when I came back on the Saturday just gone I was nowhere near my normal self, Monday just gone I was feeling about 80% capacity so hopefully tonight I should be back to at least 90%
Dion has used an analogy of an energy bar that is used in video games to show the characters “health” well last week mine was down to where it would have been flashing red!
It did freak me out a little but I am going to get that energy bar back to full so I can start focusing on April the 6th.
April 6th is the next bjj4life submission only tournament, another Gi tournament and I am excited about it.
for this tournament I’m entering for one reason only.
I want to roll as efficiently as I can, I have been in that environment before, I know the structure and generally what to expect so this time, it is all about game plan and executing that game plan efficiently.
I am also going to use a broader game plan, but this time it is really about using what we have been taught in a competition setting and using/preforming it well.
Dion is back teaching and he has come back with a passion for the old school Jiu Jitsu, cross face from side control and maintaining mount! which was so very beneficial for myself as my mount does suck(but it wont for long!)
We have now finished our back attack classes, it was really very eye opening and I think that series of classes has had a huge impact on my Jiu Jitsu.
Next we are focusing on guard passing which is something I am really looking forward to, not sure if its no-gi or gi optional but our guard passing drills are some of the most favored drills we do so the next couple of months Wednesdays are going to be awesome.
