The Happy Warrior

Graviola vid, jiujitsu stuff, double-teaming, Invicta preview, anime

I made another video for Herbal Papaya! This time talking about the Graviola Powder product! Check it out! It’s only a minute long.

I wrote a preview article for Invicta 21! I got exclusive interviews with Celine Haga (that women has such an inspirational story! Please read!), Andrea Lee, and Raquel Pa’aluhi!

I really wanna fight MMA! I really hope I get on the next Invicta card!

I wanna do the http://nabjjf.com/ tournament on Jan 21st but there is STILL NOBODY IN MY WEIGHT DIVISION wthhhhhhh ;_;

There IS ONE PERSON signed up for the BJJ World League on Jan 28th. http://www.jjworldleague.com/ I gotta lose weight for that. They’re both in California. I really want to compete in January because I hope I’m going to fight in March but nothing is set yet.

I’ve been doing every morning gi jiujitsu class lately. They’re so great! The numbers are increasing more and more! We have new people all the time, and a few belted folks moved in from out of town or other gyms. Yay. Captain runs a great class. Last week he taught this reverse triangle from back control that had me super excited.

I had the honor of training with Captain’s friend Marcio, a black belt and coach from Brazil. He was so tired but still kicked my butt, and even gave me advice, which I had to have Captain translate.

Yesterday, after the big kid’s class, I asked Rick (head kids coach) if he would roll with me, and he spent about 15 minutes with me and alerted me to a few mistakes I was making. 😀 <3 Black belts. My little kids class was huge yesterday. I'm so grateful Serena came to help me. Lorenzo put me through a shoulder workout on Friday and I'm still in pain from it. I gotta do some legs today to prove that I can do my homework and get better before our next session this coming Friday. I've also been studying my Japanese and Portuguese, per my New Years resolution. I've been almost overtraining lately, but my body's holding together.
Here’s a great shot of me and Donny, seconds after our sparring ended on Tuesday. Thanks Jessica Bakan. link to her site That was the day I did stairs, BJJ class, MMA class, and leg conditioning for 4.5 hours. Too much. But I made it. Lorenzo wants me to meet with him a second time in a week, but Wednesdays are not good for him, but my only other light day besides Sunday. I don’t know how that’s going to be possible unless someone adds an extra day to the week. *shrug* Hey, I’m already doing triple the physical activity I did before my last fight when I made the vow about jiujitsu.

I hit a curb in the dark on Saturday, and although my tire was fine Sunday morning, went flat on the way to the movies with Serena that afternoon, so my tickets I bought ahead of time were wasted and I can’t get a refund. ;_;. We saw a different showing of Underworld: Bloodwars, though. It was good. Not as fantastic as I expected.

Going back to Saturday, Captain didn’t have a partner for one round of kickboxing so I approached him, but Serena was approaching him, too. He was like “Let’s go!” so we decided to double-team attack him. XD HAHAHA It was so funny!! I wish someone had gotten a video of that.

He looked at the space in between us and saw us in his peripheral vision, and threw out attacks and defended decently. I got hit in the face a bunch of times. hah I landed a few things….but I’m sure he could have killed us both if he really wanted to. He once said that he was undefeated in street fighting, and I can believe it. XD


Anyway, enough ranting about jiujitsu and Captain. What else. I used the last of my Fuzzy’s gift card having a girls’ night with Jessy and Serena last week. That was fun. 🙂

I gave my student Kaiden a 4th stripe. I really want to promote him, but I want him to improve his armbar first. He outgrew his white belt, so I can’t wrap it around twice now. If I can just get him to do it like 20 times to me in a row, I’m sure he’ll get the hang of it.

Anime:
I finished Ajin season 2. People who can’t be killed and are experimented on, fight for human rights…

I finished Drifters season 1. Imagine gathering fighters across time to fight a war in a new world…

I rewatched Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress. Zombies called “Kabane.” nuff said. No, but it’s a unique story- one guy gets bitten but despite his body turning into a kabane, his mind is still sane.
