Expanded Ninja Skills 10.0

Recommended Posts

Current Stats: Rebel Monk Level 10, Rebellion Stats: STR=12.7 DEX=9.8 STA=9.8 CON=12.1 WIS=1.5 CHA=0.5

My contract ends in October. I will either get a permanent position or I will be unemployed. So brushing up my job skills is now the priority over fitness. So I will be combining cross training into one goal and adding job training as my priority goal. Happily, my job goals are also "ninja"

Quest 10.1-(Sage) Certifications : +1% per hour of study/practical exercise/social networking, 100% if certification obtained. +1 WIS/CHA

Quest 10.2-(Monk/Druid)=Combatives: 10% per class/workout (MACP/BJJ/MMA STRIKING/TAIJUTSU) (STR/DEX/STA/CON). Will give myself 100% if I get my level 2 at Army Combatives or fourth stripe.

Quest 10.3-(Ranger/Warrior/Assassin)Cross Training: 10% per workout: Resistance Training, Parkour Flow/Tricking, HIIT or Tactical S&C WOD (STR/CON/DEX/STA)

LONG TERM GOALS

Quest 10.1-(Sage) Certifications

Acquire the following certifications in order: ACFCS Certified Financial Crime Specialist, CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+, CompTIA Security+, EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC), Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC), Certified Information Security Manager (CISM), Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP).

Quest 10.2-(Monk/Druid)=Combatives:

Six Strategies, 20 tasks (note, in real world escape/evade takes priority over confrontation)

Six basic Unarmed Combat strategies and my 20 training tasks:

-Sprawl and Brawl- 13, 14, 16, 17, 18

-Throw and Go-5, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20

-Lay and Pray-1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16

-Get and Submit-1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 20

-Ground and Pound-1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18

-Wall and Maul- 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20

20 tasks Order of Priority:

1-If on bottom of top mount, defend against strikes/common submissions and sweep the mount

2-If on top of top mount, maintain position while striking strategically or lock down opponent until submission becomes available, maintain 360 awareness and bail if necessary. Lay and pray/ground and pound/bailout takes priority over submission.

3-If on top in full guard, be able to strike strategically while defending against submissions, keep 360 awareness and prepare to stand and bailout. Pass guard without getting triangled.

4-If on bottom in full guard, defend against ground and pound and maintain arm/head control..don't hold guard if getting slammed, sweep if guard broken. Sweep or return to guard is more important than submission. I would like to be able to threaten a bottom arm bar to triangle to omaplata or situp armbar, but that will only happen after I get good at locking down strike defense.

5-If on top in side control, first priority is lay and pray, second is select strikes, third is submission, fourth is full mount attempt. Maintain 360 security and prepare for bailout.

6-If on bottom in side control, defend strikes, wait for opponent to make a mistake and sweep (four sweeps for regular sidemount, three options for scarf and one for knee on belly).

7-If on bottom of half guard get head to side, defend against strikes and return to guard or sweep to back mount

8-If on top of half guard avoid submissions and deliver strategic strikes. Passing guard or maintaining half guard is more important than strikes or submissions.

9-If in turtle on bottom: (other than back mount)-attack hips/leg takedown, if opponent sprawls turn into his side mount.

10-If in turtle on top: North/South=Seatbelt to underarm RNC choke (darce/anaconda/etc), if not in north/south then achieve back mount. NO STRIKES FROM BACK MOUNT!

11-In little spoon in back mount: Two on one-Defend chokes, Turn into mount/guard unless armbar presents itself.

12-If big spoon in back mount: Seat belt to RNC/NINJA choke, NO STRIKES

13-Ground defense from multiple attackers: Kicks from ground/rubber guard/Helicopter Sweep/Stand in base

14-Breakfalls and Sacrifices: When off balance sit and spin. Front/Side/Rear break falls, Front/Side/Rear rolls, Spider Guard to Helicopter Sweep.

15-Offensive Grapple/Takedown: Achieve Clinch, get double under, takedown in direction of movement (Body Fold, inside/outside trip, outside/inside sweep, hip throw, rear clinch/side clinch sacrafice takedown, drop to single/double leg. If in single overhook then whizzer)

16-Defensive Grapple/Takedowns: SPRAWL!!!!!!!!!!Standing Strait Armbar (see variations below), Standing Single Wing to outside sweep or whizer, Double or single leg takedowns from knees, Front Bear Hug to any double under, Rear Bear Hug to heal pick, Suplex Defense from rear, Suplex Defense from front, Double Collar Tie/knee strike defense (high crotch)

17-Basic Boxing for MMA/Combatives-Peakaboo defense, slips, Jab/Cross/Hook/Uppercut, basic footwork and level changes, combos, no knuckle variations (palm heal, ridge hand, hammer fist, knife hand), elbow variations.

18-Basic Kickboxing for MMA/Combatives: Add in defensive (pushing) front/side/back kick, basic kick checking, round kick to legs.

19-Weapon Takaways/Weapon Retention: Weapon Takeaways: Standing Strait Armbar to shoulder lock (with wrist lock/knife/gun variations), if fails go to Standing Bent Arm Bar to sweep/hip throw (with wrist lock/weapon variation) if fails go to standing single wing triangle with sweep or wizzer. Weapons Retention: Post/Hook/Frame,

20-Basic Submissions from all positions: Have at least one no-gi choke from all positions and basic defense for each one. Properly get a strait arm bar, bent arm bar, reverse bent arm bar from all major positions, transition from Arm Bar to Triangle to Omoplata from bottom guard. Last priority is submissions even though most training time is BJJ.

I wish my job was "Ninja." Although, given how they worked in the old days, maybe I could pull that off anyway. :D

 

Good luck, man. Do you have any thoughts on where you're going to jump if the contract lets you go?

Something dealing with a combo of security/financial crime/information technology.

Also, I used your motto the other day. I just modded to "I eat like a king, drink like fish, work like a farmer, train like a soldier and pray like it's my last day on earth". It was my response to someone asking why I worked out so much and was still fat.

MON: Made Combatives today, Rolled with a newer guy in good shape, said he had some training. I wanted to slow down but he told me he wanted to go hard. I dominated him. That felt pretty good. Of course, I got destroyed by the other new guy (a purple belt at least) and one of the brown belts. Just goes to show how much training and sparring matter. +10 Percent

I think also, "Dude, welcome to the reality of a fair subset of the human race," comes into play here.  Working out is not magic.

It's fun to watch a bunch Green Berets, SEALS, Rangers and Paratroopers getting older (most of the people I train with). The "no excuses" crowd starts actually realizing, at some point, there are excuses.

But poor eating discipline is really not an excuse. I can't outrun the fork like I could when I was 20. I just don't care enough to eat right. My striking coach gets on me, my doc gets on me, my S&C coach gets on me, my kids get on me. You can fat shame someone who doesn't give a $h!t.

TUE: Full Strength and Conditioning workout: Quest 10.3: 15+10=25%

WED: Two hours of rolling, no class. Bunch of temp new guys running through MACP 1, I volunteered as a "bad guy". Its amazing how much control I had over the new guys. I got my first legit arm triangle in a while. Then my grappling coach said we all sucked at the bottom (true) and made us all fight the higher belts from the bottom. Humbled yet again. Combatives Quest 10.2 20+10=30%

THU: Full Strength and Conditioning workout + Parkour: Quest 10.3: 25+10=35%

They do not allow you to develop pride easily in this setting, do they? ^_^; Still. That is probably for the best.

 

Looking epic as ever!

Earned pride shouldn't be easy. But it can be "progressive" and "relative". For example, age, size, injuries, etc.. all count for personal measurements of success. I'm in pretty mediocre shape for a 20 year old, I'm in great condition for a 48 year old with a misaligned right leg. I'm also doing OK for a guy who started doing mixed martial arts at 47. Not great, but OK. Just getting in the ring or on the mat is better than most.

FRI: Full S&C 35+10=45%

FRI: Full Combatives...Sparred some new guys, one was very experienced with Muay Thai and the other was an experienced boxer. Held my own. I'm still not very good in the pocket, but I'm getting better at keeping people back and making they pay for sloppy strikes. Of course, we are not going hard so it's fun. I'm also getting better at keeping the cardio. 30+10=40%

Good! Glad you're in a place where you don't have to go hard to get results. It's something that pleasantly surprised me when I figured that out, so, you know, cool!

Both my striking and grappling coaches are in their fifties, most of the students are in their 30's or 40's and have already "proved" themselves overseas. No one is interested in getting injured.

All the pressure I get is on eating discipline and getting my fight cardio up. My striking coach says my extra weight is affecting my striking.

My Strength and Conditioning coach says I do enough cardio, I need more eating discipline.

Hey. I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I didn't notice the first time that you had a funeral to go to. I'm sorry to hear that that happened.

 

I didn't think you'd appreciate it if I responded with empty encouragement, but I would have spoke up a lot sooner if I'd been paying proper attention. That is my fault, and I'm really sorry about that.

 

How'd things wrap up for you this challenge? Did you meet the goals you set for yourself?

Dude, I appreciate you and terrin and everyone who takes time on these forums. "Responding on time" is not required. Besides, I haven't been able to access this page from work since they updated the site.
