There is an idea of a Yuns, some kind of abstraction, but there is no real me, only an entity, something illusory, and though I can hide my cold gaze and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable: I simply am not there.

The gyms where you have to shake everyone's hand at the beginning is weird. I don't like it.

edit: Can someone recommend some good fight shorts? I can't find any in medium...

Yeah I hate when I have to shake hands with guys before I spend the next hour hugging them in my pyjamas.

I too, hate touching other people. I bought a gi with extra long sleeves so I never make hand to hand contact with my partners.

that's fine since it's more organized, at least at the gyms i've been to. The shaking hands at the beginning is annoying because you're running around the room trying to shake everyone's hand.

My understanding is that if you were to go down to Brazil and not do this in a gym you haven't been to before, it's considered extremely rude.

Hells yes.

Also we're switching things up for the morning gi class (non-John class) for which I assist, and we're going to be getting rid of exercises like jogging around the room and switching to entirely functional drills/movements for warm up.

In John's class we do no warm up since that's your own responsibility. But for the morning gi class taught by Mike and assisted by me we do warm ups but we're going to make sure it all makes sense.

We haven't set the new warm up yet, but for example I replaced a second set of push ups with sprawls (technical sprawling not what a lot of school call a sprawl) and have also introduced sit outs to the class.

Hey Yuns, if this is private info I totally get that, but sometimes I mention this thread to my coach and if I reference "a black belt under Danaher in NYC" her eye brow goes up a little and she asks me your name. So far I just say I don't know you personally and she trusts me not to listen to internet nonsense, but if your name wasn't a secret I think she'd be interested to know who is occasionally giving me advice.

Also, got my second stripe tonight, four days before the tournament. I was sure she was going to wait, but ok, feels good

I would enjoy your class. I already do sprawls (although that is not part of the official warmup but sometimes I can get the other guys to do it with me). The sit outs are something I have struggled with and I wish it was part of our warmups.

edit: one of the best warmups I find is the hip flexor stretch. I find as I get older this has really been beneficial to me.

We got a brand new dude who is huge and built like a gorilla and has no grappling experience and its own because now I have someone roughly my size but less skilled than I am so I can an at least have a marginal measurement of my progress in a vacuum

I've also been trying to teach myself to worry about individual rolls less and just constantly put myself in weak positions so that maybe in like 10 years I will be good from there

That's how I feel.

Particularly when an instructor turns it into a 20 minute calisthenics session.

Like, if people want to be in better shape, great. But I'm paying to do BJJ.

The worst is our coach starts talking to someone in the middle of warmups and forgets to have us change what we're doing so we just get stuck doing karaokes for like 3 minutes straight until people just look at each other shake our heads and start jogging again. That's probably why most of the higher belts show up late and skip warmups.

One of our brown belts has been doing really interesting warmups recently with partners. Stuff like fireman's carrying people as you jog laps, and flipping people over from in open guard up to standing by grabbing the pants. Also dragging people around the mats by sleeve grips of different types and my personal favorite drill where you omoplata your partner and then they roll out of it and then you follow them in a roll to end up back where you started then repeat back and forth across the mats.

It's a lot more fun than the normal jogging in circles warmups we usually do, but he only typically makes it to class on Saturday and I can't make it to every Saturday class.

I totally missed a great opportunity for the darce this morning.

I'm a lanky 6'2" 165 lb and I'm trying to focus on an open guard with good retention so I've been doing ye olde butt scoot while trying out one of Danaher's knee escapes (great results).

I got to this point where we're both on our knees and I blanked on ideas besides pulling the guy into guard. I feel like emphasizing neck/head control would've gotten me that gable grip or a 100% -> truck transition. I guess I should just drill wrestler mode with the butting heads, ties, and whatnot.
