    So I am home for a week b/c of thanksgiving break and I decide to go down to a bjj academy 5 minutes away from my house. The website is www.kneeonbelly.com... First time in a while that I had new training partners and man was it awesome. They were all unpredictable and used a ton more muscle than my training partners do, which was interesting.

    Only if I could change my training partners periodically...

    yeah its awesome to train with new people. why do you think people compete?

    to test themselves against someone they dont know

    yeah it seemed to be a good way of sort of seeing where I am at now. Also my lower back has not been acting up lately which is a plus.

    Hey were you at the California Open last weekend? the pro fights were just incredible. Jake Shields was amazing. but the fight between gilbert/bill cooper and gilbert/vinicius were just jaw dropping.

    which is why Jake is where he is right now. I don't know, I feel like I should get more technical before trying to use too much muscle.

    just try to beat people. youre a small dude, if you beat someone its going to be because of your technique. dont worry about being too aggressive. small dudes gotta be aggressive or they just get squished all the time
