Hound Roll #9

Great training today. I really feel like I am starting to adapt to The schools style and have been effectively able to implement X guard techniques. 🙂

Great idea… I am curious however of using these on large breeds. I’ve seen a Bull Mastiff, who ripped a Kong to shreds when he couldn’t get the treat 🙂

Most dogs love them.They come highly recommended by all veterinarians .When dogs have a puzzle to eat and enjoy, it helps to keep their mind and body active, slows down the rate of food consumption,thus helping with digestion.Food puzzles also provide  possibly the best alternative  to destructive behavior ,that is often seen in dogs that are bored, have way too much energy or that suffer from separation anxiety.

The most simple food puzzle is a do-it-yourself food puzzle made by who else, but the Kong.Incredibly chewy, study and non-destructible, these food puzzle can be stuffed with treats and will most definitely keep your furry best friend mentally stimulated and busy.

Hound Roll #8… don’t forget the basics

Don't forget the basics... As we continue training and are exposed to more and more techniques, we tend to forget the basics. I caught myself forgetting one of the most basic submissions in BJJ. The cross lapel choke. I was reminded of it by a friend and a BJJ Black Belt, who pointed out to... Continue Reading →


Re-blogged from SCRAMBLE In part one I went over, common issues I see with conditioning for grappling sports and application of TUF methods. This one will focus on planning your conditioning approach and how to effectively work in an “inseason” between tournaments to maintain conditioning. This is more or less a lose collection of thoughts and approaches... Continue Reading →

Fun of rolling with opponents of same level ... you might establish a position but submissions is hard to achieve. When opponents are of similar skill, they both posses the knowledge of the submissions and defence, thus it makes it more fun to be able to surprise or impose your will and submission on the...

Hound Roll #6

Breathing is an imporatnt component in Jiu Jitsu. During the allergy season around March - May, I develop seasonal allergies. Those are easily treated with Allegra or Claritin. However, around this time I also get nasal congestion and phlegm which are not related to cold or flue but are a prelude to my allergy season... Continue Reading →

Nice analogy to BJJ 🙂

The Jiu-Jitsu Vortex

Martial arts training is good for your body and mind. BJJ, muay Thai, judo, wrestling, grappling, boxing, and all the rest have huge benefits to offer in the area of keeping you in shape physically and balancing out life stress so that your sanity remains intact. A few days ago, WebMD published an article about how to stay healthy by acting like your pets and as it turns out, Brazilian jiu-jitsu addicts have most of the 20 objectives covered just by training regularly. Check it out…

1. Live in the Moment
A Harvard psychology study called “A Wandering Mind is an Unhappy Mind” found that people are happiest when their mind is focussed on a specific activity – like trying to stop someone from tearing their shoulder out of its socket with a kimura.

2. Stay Curious
Brazilian jiu-jitsu training is like participating in an arms race. Your training partners…

Hound Roll #5 … “wake-up call”

So, I was reminded today not to let my guard down and not to underestimate my opponents. I was rolling with a Blue Belt. He was in my guard and tried to lapel choke me which I countered with an arm-bar threat. We reset in my guard and as he was passing he went for... Continue Reading →
