Chance Meeting….

Posted on Updated on

It’s been 41 days since my last BJJ practice. Since that time I have not even performed a BJJ solo drill. And that’s bad since that is what my website was initially based on when I started it nearly 2 years ago.

Anyway, last weekend, my wife and I decided to head to the mall after a trip to the library. While walking through the food court, I saw Smiley (head instructor and owner where I train) and his family. We greeted each other and I immediately went into excuse mode, just like most of the college students that I teach when explaining an absence. Even though I legitimately can’t attend BJJ classes right now, I still felt guilty.

Smiley told me about a lot of new happenings at the facility and I can’t wait to go back. I know I may be rusty, BJJ wise, but I should be in good shape. Although I haven’t been able to make it to class I have lifted, stretched and performed cardio and anaerobic exercises for the past 60 days. It’s never the same as rolling but it also never hurts to do it.

    I look forward to seeing you make it back to regular training: no matter how long you need to take off, BJJ will be there waiting for you. 🙂

    Thanks Slidey,

    I do too. I am in this for the ‘long haul’ so I know I will have my periods of heavy activity and other times ‘not so much.”

    “Check this out. This is some solid MMA training. I don’t train to compete just as an exercise regiment and this is the best workout schedule I have found to date. It’s not free but worth the fifty bucks.”
