    Get infinite intensity off the tracker if you compete in anything. It just got posted. It's terrific if you are interested in conditioning or training in general. Better yet, get a hardcopy. It's worth it.



    BTW just got back from a grappling superfight against a guy that apparently just got his Brown belt under one of the Ribieros. He had a few inches and some weight on me, but I don't know how much since it was a superfight and there were no weigh ins. I was nervous as hell.

    Just got back. I got lucky. He stuffed my shots so I clinched up and he felt like he was getting antsy to pull guard so I took him down. My judo and wrestling has finally payed off. I took him down four times, but only passed his guard twice and got put back in. I only had a chance to go for a near side "windshield wiper" armbar, but I didn't get my hips even close to deep enough. Thank God it was no gi or I bet it would have ended differently.

    I didn't even really put him in danger but whatever.

    I need some guard passing work.

    Thanks bro.

    Yea, I'm sure it was kind of a boring match. I just kept taking him down and kept winding up in his closed guard which was much better than my passing skills.

    I just kept trying to pass from standing where he would try to sweep and I kept backing off to try to take him down into sidemount.

    I filled in for my buddy after he couldn't make it and I was only told about the event shortly before it happened. I didn't even have time to get a videocamera, but the event coordinator taped it and said he is sending me a copy as soon as he can.

    I was really nervous because I have been overtraining for naga hard since I'm taking two weeks of vacation and naga is right when I come back. I hadn't taken a break in a week and a half and I've been lifting/conditioning/training twice a day. I slept for 10 hours last night woke up for a little then slept another 3 hours, that's how messed up I was lol.

    Good thing I didn't have much going on today.

    Thanks everyone


    My instructor is a blackbelt under the Machados, brolli
