  1. Going to start my daily log here tomorrow. This post is a place holder.
  2. Here is a short video on the origin of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a Brazilian martial art that can trace its roots back to Japanese Judo. It is predominantly a grappling martial art. Supposedly self-defense Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu includes striking and disarms, but I've only practiced what would be considered sport bjj. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was popularized by the Gracie family and most people often think of all BJJ practitioners to tracing their lineage back to the Gracies, but this is untrue. Another influential line would be the Luiz Franca line, whose standout student was Oswaldo Fadda. BJJ reached world wide recognition when Royce Gracie won the first Ultimate Fighting Championship defeating larger opponents. It has since become pretty much a pre-requisite for those looking to compete in Mixed Martial Arts.
  3. Have any of you ever thought about or implemented balance exercises as a Monk, during your strength training / fitness days? After talking to a trainer at the (fitness) gym, I've been thinking about it. It sounds like a good idea to do so as a Monk (grappling/BJJ), but I was wondering if any of you had any experience with this and maybe some good tips on specific kind of balance exercises. Balance is not something that is really explicitly trained at the dojo I used to go to, however I just moved to a new place and am still browsing new dojo options while I work on my strength/stamina.
  4. I'm at the stage in judo now where club practices aren't enough to get by and I need to do a bit of independent training on judo specific skills. In regular practice I find that I get most development from target driven randori. Get a throw from cross grip, foot work only, defend for 1 minute etc I have access to bands for uchi komi but I don't have a mat set up for break falls. But not to restrict this to uchi komi and to involve some useful movement drills too. Does any one have advice on how I would structure an independant session on skills?
  5. A man has traveled across the NerdFitness universe, coming under the tutelage of other clans to learn necessary skills, in order to find himself. Adventurers. Rangers. Scouts. Assassins.
