Jiu Jitsu Concepts: Collapsing The Structure

Nic Gregoriadis talked about this concept and I decided to implement it in my game. Sometimes it works really well and at other times it doesn’t as with all techniques.

Mouthguard and why keeping them clean is IMPORTANT

I have been involved in mixed martial arts for a very long time. Fighting professionally a few years now and keeping my mouth guard clean is one of my top priorities…well amongst keeping my other equipment clean as well such as my groin protector :) anyways moving on

We are going to stick to a mouth guard for sports not a night guard although some of the techniques here could be used for that as…

Keeping your composure while getting hit

Keeping your composure while getting hit

A few days ago after about 10 solid round of sparring a few of us dead tired were sitting down and chatting about what it takes to keep your composure in MMA, boxing, and other combat sports.

Jiu Jitsu: To Gi or NOT to Gi

Jiu Jitsu: To Gi or NOT to Gi

to gi or not to giMixed Martial Arts or MMA is a synthesis of a combination of different martial arts that come together to what is known today as MMA.

Its always important to try even if it means failing

Its always important to try even if it means failing

Everyone is scared of failure. I’ll be the first to admit it that it scares me too at times but you have to get over it. That’s the important thing in accomplishing your goals. Getting over that fear of failure. Easier said then done I know.

I have failed quite a few times. My first Muay Thai fight at 16 I got TKOed…complete failure right there right. Yes and no. You learn alot from failure. It…

Positive Self Talk

Positive Self Talk

In any type of undertaking you need positive self talk at all times. Job interview, competition, exam etc you always need to tell yourself that you are going to do great and that you feel great.

From a fighters perspective, a few days prior to a fight all fighters go through weight cuts. Now this involves very little fat in your diet…actually nevermind it is the skinny anorexic models diet! haha…

From a fighters perspective, a few days prior to a fight all fighters go through weight cuts. Now this involves very little fat in your diet…actually nevermind it is the skinny anorexic models diet! haha but ok all jokes aside its a pretty shitty time. Especially because you cant eat what you want to eat and whatever you are eating you cannot have too much of it. Anyways its a ton of pressure on your mind and your mood will take a killing in the process. A simple fix. Positive Self Talk! A very simple exercise of just saying positive sentences to yourself. These sentences could be as simple as “I am feeling great today!”Thats it!

This has had profound effects on me the past few days. It may seem alittle odd at first but believe me it will change your whole day.

One positive thought in the beginning of your day will determine how the rest of your day goes.
