I got this weird 24 hr. cold so I didn't workout Monday.

Yesterday I passed my level 3 Muay Thai test. It was harder than my last test and I almost passed out from doing the timed drills. On a funny note, I was paired up with this guy and he was a little smaller and I thought he was good because he seemed to know a lot of others in the gym that have been there for a while and I see him train with others, separate from the main class. Well I was wrong. The head instructor and one of the Pro fighters were yelling at him to pick up the pace every 5-10 minutes. Now the funny part. Half way through the test we had to do punching drills and end with a kick to the head. Your partner is suppose to block it. Well second set I do I throw the kick to his head, at medium speed, and the guy doesn't really block. So something right out of a Van Dam movie I stop right before contact and leave my leg up there. The Head Instructor sees this and yells at me, "Dave, KICK HIM IN THE F@!#ING HEAD NEXT TIME IF HE DOESN'T BLOCK!!" I was thinking man he is really pissed at this guy for not giving 100%. So after a little bit, guess what I did? I didn't knock him out or anything. I just slowed down the kick before it nailed him in the head.

Next Monday I have tryouts of the Muay Thai Fight Team. This should be very exciting. I can't wait.

On a side note, I'm going out of town for a couple of days for a wedding and won't be updating till Sunday, maybe Monday, don't worry the kettlebell is coming with ;) . I know I've been promising the grappling vids, and they will be up, I've just been real busy lately.

^^ its his own fault if he doesnt want to put the effort in to block, and its taking away from your learning/training. I would have kicked him in the head too hahah. good shit dave.

hrdgain81's Sig:I don't do this for my family, my friends, women, accolades, pride, or ego. I do it for me and no one else, its just part of who I am.

Dave I'm impressed that you could hover your kick like that. I haven't seen many MMA guys with the strength to do that. That's awesome in itself.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

13 years of traditional karate and kempo helps out. We would do exercise where you hold your leg out in a round house kick position as high as you can for about a minute or so. That's what helps with control. MMA is all about power with very little finesse.

As for me holding my leg out there, it was only for about 3 seconds. I could have held it out there longer but I had more kicking to do.

Yeah I understand that pretty has nothing to do with it. But I'll tell you, as I'm sure you know, that there is a big difference between slinging a kick and delivering a powerful one. That active flexibility is very important. It's one thing when your beating on a guys leg and it's cumulative damage. But that once in a blue moon head kick is a different story. Just another weapon in your arsenal

^^^oh most definitely.


Ok, Update. I didn't workout for the whole 5 days back at my mothers house. Yes, I'm a slacker.

I have my Muay Thai Sparring tryouts this Monday so I'm not going to workout just so I can save my strength, and I don't know what I'm in for so I need to be prepared to go all out.

Cool Muay Thai Sparring Team Tryouts

Well I made it. I didn't spar the pros I thought I was going to but it was an amazing learning experience. You really learn fast what you need to work on and what you thought works but doesn't do a damn thing.

I didn't get as banged up as I thought. I have no bruises but I'll tell you one thing, I will never take girls lightly in sparring class ever again. We first worked on just boxing and being able to weather the storm of punches if caught in a corner, example, I would be in the corner and get punched 5-9 times then I would pop up and punch 6 times then weather the storm again. The first person I did this sparring drill with was a girl that I thought was kinda tough but didn't realize how good she really was until she punched me square in the nose and shook me up. I mean this thing came out of nowhere. Talk about humbling. After a couple more hand drills we boxed for a round then kickboxed for about 3 rounds. I definitely need to work on my boxing but as for Thai boxing, I did alot better.

One funny incident, I was sparring this guy who was about 6'4" and had a longer reach than mine, I'm about 5'11". In the middle of sparring one of the coaches tells the guy to throw some kicks and kick me in the head. Well after the coach told him to do it 3 times I figured, Well, I'll kick him in the head. So I landed a nice kick and I said to the coach, "Like that right." Then coach said, "No, I wanted him to do it. But good job anyway." After that the guy got more focused and popped me a couple of times in the head. I guess I just caught him off guard and he didn't expect a shorter guy to be able to kick so high.

I had a great time and it felt good to learn on the fly and test myself. I can't weight till next Monday for more sparring.

Cool Grappling vid

Sorry if the quality isn't that good, I recorded it off a digital camera not a video recorder.

This is one of the videos from a competition I did awhile ago. In this tournament I went from 212lbs to 199lbs in 4 days to compete in the 200lbs beginner division. I didn't win this competition because my game plan was flawed, I was too worried about submission and not paying attention to points. As you can see in the vid I keep attacking his arms and every other time he bear hugs me and pushes me down. I need to work on my wresting as you can see in the beginning. So recently I hired one of the trainers in my MMA school for private wrestling lessons, so I'm working on that.

The guy you hear close up is my friend. The other guy you keep hearing, "attack that arm" is a black belt at my school.

I'll try and upload the competition I was recently in and won.

enjoy.
