The people without great talent but with desire tend to become the technicians. When others are more talented, you must be more skillful to win. Most of the really superb martial artists and fighters I’ve known have been runts with a drive to win. Small and weak, they couldn’t afford to be merely good. They had to be fantastic to hold their own. –Rory Miller
Saturday lunchtime BJJ in Seattle.
Warmed up with Coach Dynamo- mostly sitting on top of each other in turn and groping for sub grips that we couldn’t get.
Drills to exhaustion:
Standup- Single leg
Guard pass to kimura
Opponent double-legs, you sprawl, crossface, move to side, double-unders, pull opponent into your back mount
Lots of getting up and getting down; this is always a vast amount of hard work.
Triple-partnered with Angela and Kelly, all of us going 110%.
Too tired to stay for 2nd hour “competition” class.
Thighs (lower fronts) aching by the time I got home. Usually it takes till the next morning- or at least that evening- before noticable muscle aches set in, so I know we worked hard. Always nice to work with Angela and Kelly. They take it seriously and bust buns.
