Posted by: | Comments (0)

Well, another year has past and it was a good one!

Mostly because I got to spend a lot of time with my friends and family and had the pleasure of teaching so many great students both at Joslin’s MMA and over the internet as well.

I hope 2011 is a great year for you!

Have a great night and be safe!

In celebration of New Years, you can pick up my No-Gi Submission Escape Instructional workshop for 50% off (14.95)

Here’s some info on it

Find Yourself Getting Arm Locked, Triangled and Omaplatad into Submission?

I share my best escapes to those three attacks in this 20 videos training workshop. This workshop is a NO-GIworkshop but every single escape within is applied in exactly the same way with the gi on.

The techniques in this series will make it so EASY for you to escape armlocks, triangle chokes and omaplatas that you’ll find yourself letting people catch you in training so that you can defend and escape over and over again.

The new found confidence these escapes will give you will have you attacking more often, with greater speed and with way less fear of putting yourself in troubling positions.

Develop some rock solid defense to the most common submission attacks out there.

Here’s a vid from the workshop…

Happy Holidays!

I hope your enjoying the holiday season and if you do have any shopping to do I hope you didn’t leave it to the last minute like me because it sucks! 🙂

Two days of sickness early in the week has forced me to hit the trenches –a.k.a the mall– in search of gifts for the friends and family.

The shoppers out there are more aggressive than some of my opponents inside the cage have been.

Anyways, be safe and thank you for reading my blog. It means a lot!

In celebration of the holidays, I’m offering my “Body Shot Workout” at 1/2 price! (14.95). Sale ends Christmas Eve (December 24th) at midnight so act quickly.

Tire, weaken and drop your opponent!

The body shot is one of the best ways to gain advantage over your sparring partners and opponents.

In this 25 Video workshop, you’ll learn how to hit the body. I mean really hit the body, in the rights spots while using a ton of leverage, so that opponent will quickly understand why body shots hurt more than the ones that hit the head.

Your Opponent’s won’t know what hit them!

Sorry the sale is over…

I’ve read through all of the essays that were left for the contest and all I can say is…


The kind words and the fact that so many of you took the time to share a little bit about yourselves is truly appreciated.

It was extremely tough to pick 3 winners as there were some fantastic answers.

Remember, if you didn’t win, the program is going live this Monday at midnight at a special low price that anyone can afford.

I made sure that the value of the material that you’ll learn through the program greatly exceeds its cost because I’m so excited to see what you can accomplish by using it.

Anyway, on to the winners…

Hugo won with his essay telling about his yearlong school project where he picked “Training mixed martial arts”. I’m very excited to see what kind of mark we get at the end of the year J…

Malik won with his essay telling about his super long trips to the gym and his hyper focused thoughts about MMA. This program will give him the strong foundation that will help him retain the stuff he learns from his offline instructors…

And lastly, Sly Fox won as well. His story about a long commitment to martial arts and a devastating injury that had stopped him from doing what he loves to do really touched home. I hope my program gets him back into martial arts training and I’m really looking forward to hearing about his progress in the future.

Well guys, that’s it – visit the blog sometime after midnight on Monday to take advantage of the special intro price (which ends Thursday at midnight)

Oh yeah…If you purchase the program on the very first day I’ll throw in my most popular instructional workshop “Striking: Head Movement” as a bonus.

I’m a Weirdo & I’m Worried…

Posted by: | Comments (3)

[jwplayer mediaid=”3965″]

It all started when I was a kid.

Growing up in a dojo turned me into a martial arts nerd.

I blame it all on the fact that I’d get push-ups and sit-ups instead of timeouts but that’s another story.

When I got into high school, I really didn’t do as well as I could or should have.

My mind was hyper-focused on martial arts; I’d sit there in class and wonder when I would be getting my next belt or figuring out how many days there were until the my next tournament.

I grabbed everything I could get my hands on – VHS Tapes (Yes it was that long ago), books, magazines – you name it.

I would sit in my room and read those books, watch the instructional videos and dissect the magazines for hours on end without food or drink…

My brother and his friends use to say that I was allergic to the sun. I really hated that! But I still didn’t go out.

I remember a time when a really hot chick from high school came over to the house to see me.

She ended up going swimming with my family because I decided to stay home to train.

My mom told me afterwards that my brother, his friend and my Dad’s eyes were nearly popping out of their heads when she hit the pool in her tiny bikini.

What the heck was wrong with me!

I had no social life! I was training way too much and when I was wasn’t training, I was thinking about training.

It was a vicious cycle of MMA addiction!

Nowadays, there are clubs offering MMA everywhere and that has me worried!

Worried because, unfortunately, many instructors think a punch is just a punch and a kick is a kick and that ground work is not that complicated.

This is totally not true! Tons of people are wasting time and learning bad habits that will be nearly impossible for them to break. With so much to learn, new mixed martial artists cannot afford to get off track in their training.

That’s why it’s so important to do things the right way, from the very start.

I’ve been compiling a list of ideas that will help those people, the ones new to MMA training, get on the right track right from the very start.

I’ve also zeroed in on the one most important thing on that list that every mixed martial artist absolutely needs to know.

I’ll post more on that very soon! Be sure to check the blog again soon so you don’t miss it.


Did you ever have a bad experience with a martial arts instructor that was obviously just trying to cash in on the popularity of MMA?

I have had the damn thing in the closet for 3 years and have never got to wear it. A black genuine Ninja suit –from a martial arts supplier not a costume store– with everything I need to look the part aside from any dangerous weapons of course. For some reason or another I never got the chance to bust it out for the last two Halloweens but this year things were different.

Last night, since it was October 31st, I threw on my Ninja gear so that the kids and I could take pictures together with our costumes on. My daughter Kaiya was dressed up as a beautiful queen, my son Tayzen a masked gangster. We got some pretty good pics, one of which my wife already threw up as her profile pic on face book which is a little embarrassing but whatever.

Anyways, as I was about to change back into my regular clothes when my daughter, who I was about to take out so that she could trick or treat around the neighborhood for a few hours, told me that I looked awesome and asked if I would wear the outfit outside as we stormed house to house in search of candy. I said that I would but felt a wave of nervousness pass through my body as the words left my mouth. I guess walking the streets in Ninja Mode was a little out of my comfort zone. The fact that it was still light out didn’t help much either. Regardless, I took it as a person challenge and as a competitor I took the first few steps out the front door with Kaiya’s pillowcase in hand.

Once on the street, we hit the first house. When the young girl came out to give my daughter a handful of candy, I let out a huge laugh. I think she thought I was laughing at her costume but that wasn’t the case at all. I laughed because I felt like an idiot being dressed up like I was when no one else was really out with their costumes on yet. After that awkward moment we moved on with our journey.

As it got a little darker, I began to relax a bit. That`s when my daughter and I began to really have some fun.

“This is my favourite holiday Daddy!” she told me at one point during the night, face smiling as she looked down into her hands that were filled with a small mountain of candy that some lady had just given her.

Throughout the night I received a few compliments on my costume from some 7th or 8th graders which made me feel pretty cool, and a few people screamed “Ninja!” as they drove by. At one point, I think some chubby father actually tried to pick a fight with me as well.

Stopping beside me with a large masked friend of his beside him, as his daughter and my daughter trick or treated the same house, he spoke.

“Remember when I punched you out?” he said to me.

“No, I think that was my cousin.” I quickly replied in a joking manner, my face still fully cloaked inside my ninja hood.

“No,no,no. It was you. I recognize those eyes.” he said before pausing for a moment. “Yes, I think I punched out your parents too.”  he continued, his friend commenting to him something about him being mean.

A quick vision of his daughter witnessing her father being smacked around by what appeared to be a real ninja made me realize that subduing the man wouldn’t be the best move.  How could a child ever forget that? I didn’t say another word. I simply smiled underneath my mask and headed on my way once my daughter was beside me again.

Arriving home a few hours later, we entered our house after passing by the awesome pumpkins that my wife had meticulously carved the day before. Our hands were absolutely freezing but my daughter was so happy. She had filled up two bags with candy on the trip and in a few seconds all of it was in the middle of our living room floor. I even got to eat of few of the things she didn`t like. Not a bad deal at all.

A hour of so later my son got in from the Halloween adventure that he had with a few of his friends from the neighborhood. He did pretty good as well.

Next year, I`ll be working on getting the wife to dress up with us on Halloween. That`s going to be tough. I look forward to the challenge!

Here’s a few pics of the pumpkins my wife carved into jack-o-lanterns.

Happy Halloween!

I’m not dressing up this year since I don’t have any parties to go to. Instead, I’m going to spend tomorrow with the wife and kids, taking them –the kids that is– out to trick or treat and spending some time hanging out by my door so that I can hand out candy to the ton of kids that seem to live around here.

I do have a genuine ninja suit that is begging to get thrown on so maybe I will dress up and answer my doorbell with that thing on. Even better I could hide in my bushes and jump out ninja style and scare some kids. I’ll have to give this some thought but don’t worry I’ll let you know how it goes.
