    My form is improving slightly I think.

    I've got 2 other videos uploading now.

    This is a MT guy mostly, working on some bjj.

    Hes a bit lighter than me and not that great, but neither am I. Its a good match.

    MMA sparring and me with the russian are coming up.

    You can see the fear in me sparring Min. Its fucked up. He went VERY light today and I was expecting him to tear me in half again :mamoru:

    I don't let my hands go enough when kickboxing. I really need to.

    And either my form is worse when kickboxing..or it just feels to me like its better. Because I still don't keep my chin in very tight...but I feel like I do.

    Its loading onw.

    He was going SO light with me today and I was so fucking scared. I didn't want to even be on the mat with him...its sad. He has broken my will to fight him after yesterday.

    I don't know why he was being so nice to me today.

    He ankle locks me 3 times and finally I get the breathe knocked out of me by a sambo throw.

    respect him but don't fear him. every time he kicks your ass you're learning something. always improve. i personally think it's great that you've got someone to train with that's better than you.

    With the MMA gloves on I was nervous again. Especially after the beating I took yesterday in boxing gloves.

    He was going soft today, I was surprised. I wish I had videos from last night.

    I let my hands go more when we are just boxing.

    And I've found that when kicks are involved I have really shitty takedowns because I'm afraid I'm going to take a knee to the face.

    When I'm just grappling they are explosive, knee to the mat, penetration step, etc...

    When I'm kickboxing too, I don't take the penetration step at all. :hs:

    I wasn't trying to work my way out of it. It was just a training session and he has a MT fight coming up so I was letting him work it.

    I'm a good bit stronger than him, I could have powered out of it.

    i'll take your word for it but the same thing happened with drago, and letting your head go down is really bad, almost ate two nasty ones to the face

    This kid doesn't block for shit when he throws a leg kick. Step in and eat the kick and throw a right straight down the pipe for the KO.

    Min dude looked like he was fucking goofin around. Dude must be damn good.

    The Chaz vid, now I didn't watch all of it. But you guys look like your dancing around with this kick and that kick and not that much hands. IMO needs more good hard combinations while you come at him. Mix it all up. Punch, kick, punch, kick, punch punch ect.

    Exactly. Especially since min seems to be constantly circling off to your dead side. If your left hand and shoulder is down, he can throw a right cross into your temple or chin everytime. You dove to the deck soon as he stepped in to throw that right hand cause you knew it was gonna hurt, so it looks like he uses that a lot against you. All he does is step right and in and throws a cross and its gonna land everytime unless your chin is chucked under your shoulder.

    Soon as you see him step off to your dead side, roll your left palm up to your left temple and hide your chin under teh shoulder, and take a step to your right while at the same time turning to face him.

    A few things I would work on.

    1. Footwork seemed a bit sloppy you seem to be walking in alot.
    2. You half finish combos commit to them throw all the punches and kicks you intended.
    3. Chins up and stuck out keep it tucked look at the guy through your eyebrows..
    4. You linger do what you have to do and get out of range.
    5. With your hands you seem to be slow on getting them back to where they should be.

    That said you were probably just a bit lazy and tired :)

    For 1, just as a safety precaution push you rfuckin matts together. You guys don't wanna end up like Tim Lagik (sp?).

    2) Keep you rfuckin hands covering your face man! You are not a good enough striker to be hangin you rhands at chest lvl!

    3) at 2:43 of the vide with chaz you can pretty easily come out with a single leg. your under hook hand goes around his upper thigh/butt and grips your other hand coming from the inside (much like a high crotch) I keep my 1/2 guard locked backwards for this move (outside legs come between opponents legs and inside leg is the straighter of the 2) from the grip you shuck and bump till you can get around a bit, bring your stright leg out and get to your knees. Normally you can hit the single from here, if not go to standing and either hoist up the high crotch or kick their support foot out.

    4) At 1:39 of the match with Min you had a super high guard around the back of his head. I use this ALOT! if you oculd underhook a leg or even just keep a grip on his arm you have an easy armbar with excellent placement. Thing is you can't really sit there cause they can figure what you're doin. I like the leg underhook cause it opens up to the mount sweep aswell.

    I didn't want to get hit again :hs:

    He was going really soft with me, he normally drills me when he steps in like that.

    I was scared :mamoru:
