BJJ Bullshit!

If any BJJ students training at reputable clubs think their skills are below par, take a look a some of these videos on the link, some of the worst 'Jiu Jitsu' on the planet...

First referral from REORG!

Tonight I had the pleasure of teaching my first student who was referred to me by the REORG organisation, a young woman by the name of Lisa. As part of her ongoing rehab regime, Lisa is now taking Jiu Jitsu classes and really enjoyed her first class and I'm looking forward to helping her get back on the road to full recovery.

Filming at Checkmat Wimbledon!

Had a great time today with Will Henshaw from World of Martial Arts TV, who came down to do some filming at the gym; a small interview was recorded together with some techniques, looking forward to seeing the finished article when it gets released.

Thanks to my student Big Ron for being my test dummy for the techniques :)

GCP Episode 245 - David Adiv

Last night's class

Huge thanks to my sponsors Omar Javed over at Grapple Kings for the awesome new ultra light competition Gi and to Harj Bains over at BAIN HQ for the equally awesome rash guard under the Gi :)

Thanks to this awesome apparel, I felt ten years younger in class last night and for the first time in many months, I actually managed to train with the lads for the whole session, without having to sit out, due to my creaky back and I had an awesome time with the lads.

Sessions like this usually come with a hefty price the morning after, when you can't get out of bed without reaching for the painkillers and getting your socks on in nigh on impossible; however today is one of those very rare good days for us veterans of the mats and this morning I emerged out of bed with very little post training aches, pains and tears, although I still have a sneaky feeling that the pain is in the post.

Looking forward to another good session tomorrow with the lads and just hope that I'm not pushing my luck too much; this post is a shout out to all my veteran grappling friends all around the world, who are still on the mats fighting the good fight...........Oooooss!

Here's a few great videos on how to make your warm ups more grappling specific, instead of just running around the mats in a circle.......................

Naughty, naughty Mr Teague......

From BJJ Problems.........

'Please Like/Comment/Share for visibility. A few hundred of my dollars went to the "Red Belts" project he was working on - which we never saw.

He is now the main editor for if we needed a reason to boycott them further.

Any attempt to get information from him about the missing SEVENTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS is ignored and he has gone completely dark about it. Yet he peddles his Flograppling stuff like it never happened and we all don't know how much of a scam artist he is.

This guy should never do business in the BJJ world again - EVER.'
