    I've got a tourney in a month and half so I have been spending half of my time on judo takedowns for gi and wrestling takedowns for nogi and the other half just on my ground game mostly on my guard.

    I'm training with a blackbelt, brownbelt and two purple belts in JJ, a national competitor in Judo, and several collegiate wrestlers. They give me more than enough of a beating/overload of tips :p

    Plus I need to get a newer video camera. Mine is so old that I don't even think that it hooks up to the usb port.

    Mainly just trying to find someone to train with. When I do train I try to work out some street situation.

    I was a typical wrestler getting into BJJ so for a long time I tried to kick old habbits and instead of shooting on people or just relying on speed to pass guard I've really been concentrating on my technique. I pull guard instead of shooting, I butt scoot instead of standing...It's been working great, but now my wrestling is pretty sloppy and I need to do some heavy drilling to refine it.
    For striking I've been working some muay thai (hitting pads and such), but have been slacking on it since I got back from Thailand.

    Placebo what tourney are you competing in?
