    I spent a few years training kickboxing/pankration when I was younger... I broke my wrist and never went back to it.
    Over the weekend I dropped by a local fitness club a friend of mine invited me too for a Jujitsu class. It was being tought by Tom Montes who trains at Universal MMA with Denis Kang... The guy was a great teacher and ran a good class.

    Anyway, not only did I forget how much effort and cardio is needed to roll, but I have been so sore since Saturday I could barely sleep.

    Looking forward to getting back into training, just not sure where I am going to train and if I want to just stick with JJ or go back to kickboxing as well.

    Nahh, like 210 at 6'...

    I was one of the smaller guys there too. Though there were a lot of inexperienced guys there so I was able to do quick subs when I got tired when we were rolling on a lot of the guys.

    Do I qualify as a beast?

    I've been sick and had to miss a few classes. I can't wait to get back this week.

    I've only been training BJJ for about 2 weeks now. I have the "broken toe" initiation down already :big grin:

    It's a lot of fun.

    Yeah, Tom's awesome. :bigthumb: I've been training at Universal for a few years now but I've had to take the last few months off. I'm hoping to get back in the gym in the next week or two though. If you decide to stick with Universal, I'm sure I'll see you down there sometime.

    yeah, I did. Rolling with guys that are much smaller than me means I get to fuck around.

    I know rubber guard gets a lot of hate, but I do like using it. Nobody at my gym has any idea how to defend any of it, so I'll do it fucking around or if I'm getting frustrated.

    tap him?

    wtf?

    it's a fucking guard, not a submission you faggot. This is how I knew you didn't use it.


    "I almost tapped a guy with closed guard"

    How would you TAP someone with rubber guard?
