I find a "warrior's wall" quite useful in psyching myself up. Meaning, you write in paper 200 push ups, for example, and stick it on the wall, high. Then gradually lowering the value, like 175, 150, 125 etc, you put up a chart to see your progress and next target very clearly. Then just do it for kind of seven or eight different moves and you'll find your wall filling up with some serious warrior-like stuff.

And write it big enough to be seen from other side of the room, literally filling the wall with paper. Looks good.

I remember when I was in a rolling session with my bro and he wanted to learn BJJ submissions and escapes because at his school lots of fights breaking out and he wanted to learn SOME form of defense. So i showed hima all kinds of stuff (Mount, side control, guard(half,full), armbar, leglocks'
chokes, that kind of thing) and I wanted to see what he learned. So we're rolling and I have full guard and going for a triangle and nearly choke him to tap. then he slip out because of the sweat and stuff and goes for a leglock. I'm not gonna tap from a leglock..........or I thought (cause it never happened) Then I'm in his full guard and HE tries for a triangle. He didn't quite have the figure four in; it was more of a scissor lock than anything, and it wasn't a lock on my neck, it was on my head and face.Then I'm on my back and he's scissoring on my head and actually locks in the figure four now. Now at this time, I'm on my back, in a triangle crushing the hell outta my face and he's just squeezing and I hear a crunch! In my head! So now my right eye hurts (not a black eye :P) and my orbital is somewhat hurt. I repay him by showing him the banana split and he's out for the rest of the night :P


wats the banana split?

No, I meant kind of progress bar =D Monitoring my strenght and setting small-step goals to achieve just to notice I've already got the next goal right there...

Push-ups, for example. 10, 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175, 200. And when I get 75 done, for example, I've already crossed out 10, 25 and 50 and then I just cross 75 out and start gazing at 100 with a glitter in my eyes. ^^


And when I get to 200 I'll rip the thing down and put up a chart with 400 as goal xD
Never giving up the increase =P until I can do so much push-ups that I can do them as a six-hour warm up and continue with squats or something... ^^



I've got up 300 drop & touch moves, 200 push-ups, 500 squats, 3 hours root and 200 forward rolls. Also, there is that "animal mastery" but it's kinda hard to explain =P
And above them all reads "Not a man, but a WARRIOR" with cat-sized letters... ^^

so hows your training?


Well I do training every second day, and everything I've achieved so far every time. If I can. 100 drop&touch, 25 push-ups, 75 squats, 30 min root training and 50 forward rolls. I also go to gym to beat up a bag at weekends and do those basic "train with every movement" -thingies...
And now that I added a proteine diet to my training (and currently I'm training mostly strenght), I feel just great ^^

I'd compress that as an answer for your question: Training's goin' quite well =P

Ground fighting against a standing opponent.

So, this is the bit I came up with. For starters, you need strong and staminaful middle body. So do sit-ups and sit straight. When you go down, make sure you land safely, squat down immediately you notice you can't keep your balance. When fighting against masses, do everything to not fall. When pitted against a single opponent and when trained properly, this position might even be favorable for you. Not one single guy expects you to go down on purpose and fight from there.

The word is turtle. An upside-down turtle. When you land, if you can't immidiately spring up somehow, lay down on your back and kinda crouch so that only that back touches the ground. The most defensive and agressive stance at the same time. Easy to kick from, easy to grab from and even moving isn't so hard when you get the trick to it.

So, "what can I do from this position?", you ask. The first thing, you defend. Imagine a situation where there is two opponents, for example. It is practically the same thing as having your back against wall or otherwise both on the same side. Just that there is only one opponent. So, to speak a bit more clearly, your feet are the only target to your opponent. And your feet are a weapon. So basically the only option is parried blows. Or, if the opponent is fool enough, he might come down charging at you, only to be kicked and thrown over you.

Secondly, you attack. You can do almost every kick from this position as you can do standing. You just direct them a bit differently. To do a sweep, for example, you just turn to your side and kick from "down" to "up". Targeting knees. And you can do thrusting kicks as easily as if you were standing. Maybe even more easily. I personally prefer using the edge of foot when throwing thrust kicks from ground. Maybe you find your own favorite, maybe not. Most definitely not if you don't search for it, so get to ground and start testing.

Btw, this is a great training method, too. Trains you in almost every possible way you need to train to make your kicks and punches count.

groundfighting... added by me ^__^

in a position that you must go to the ground the first rule is never give your back. if you must give your back you have for or more options..depending on light speed space and time, and of course positioning.. leverage and strength and even power..
so to learn this learn the economy of motion..
agains many.. to curl into a ball is fair but then again the spine ribs and hands and thighes will be a target second.. in a jumping kicking to the arm can dislocate your shoulder or clavicle.. there are two postitions of just the body meaning torso and legs you may take..
the upside down turtle.. make sure to not going for a triangzy..to you must go lazy.. cover your head in a boxer stance.and if possible
knees to your chest to block stomps.. from here you can go for stomp kicks and roundhouses as mournclaw! says.... but make sure
to turn with your hips.. use one leg as a pivoter.. to move around as if you are going for a triangle choke(but just your hips.. not your arms)
wat you can also do are low blows to close targets or use your legs to sink between or to the side of nearby opponents.. aim for soft tissue..
even hammer punch or uppercut calf muscles.. notches where your lower extremities meet.. ax kick bones toes tarsals.. metatarsals boney parts of feet.. when they sink to get you you can punch..
or even elbow.. or grab arms and legs..

in eastern as in japan, china, filipinas, indonesia, malaysia..vietnam..thailand..
its understandable.. grab a leg a foot and position.. and use your legs.. in american or greco roman. chinese and even turkish, and indian, and african..wrestling or grappling.. position your neck or shoulder.rows . kneebar from rear or front.. and you can get a takedown..
use your head.. its a knuckle.. use your back..when its safe.. use your back its a reference point for throws.. like the fireman carry..

depend on your position.. use can use a hip heist.. a squatin.. or kneeling on one leg for support..and another one straight and a beam for an arm with the kneeling..and one guard hand,,
in other terms you can use this.. sit on you bottom.. put one leg out bent knee the other.. bent knee but laying..and hands up..hands covering your face.. this position can help you with your attack and defense..
this is used in jiujitsu..and in malaysian groundfighting..hmmm or indonesian im not too sure..but this is from pensat silat.. others.. you may replicate your body as in shaolin.. they also do this for bokator..

there are more than five ways to take down an opponent..
lowblows.. straight or hook punches or kicks to their thighes.. attacks to the spinal column or lumbar region to pelvis..
knee locks.. straight legbars.. ankle picks or whatever to get their upper torso to move forward..back or side to side.. or rolling on their leg.
so supination, immoblization.. direct or indirect attacks.. pressure points of cartilage and bone x joint connection.. or muscle piercing..

what you must look for are like any for grappling.. no matter from a-american or armenian or african.. to z- name please ^__^
look for mistakes.. spaces of location or spaces made by steps between the feet.. feints.. the flow of your opponents body..
and separation of balance..as in the boxer stance.. hmmm 45% to 45% or 30% back.. 70% lead when facing you..
or reverse..

from the ground.. its the same thing..but now leverage strength and stamina AND CARDIO COMES TO PLAY..
the techniques feel free to share.
i've noticed.. replicated ground cardio.. and muscle training and flowing of motions is very hard so please feel free to share

this is a ground skeleton..prototype similar to bagua or taichi..
in this are also the triangle theory of wing chun..and xing yi... and the squares and regions.. when placed on the floor it may be used as a point to move your body.. or help for ground fighting..
if you closely it has a head.. body, legs, and bent body parts.. its partially uneven for this purpose..
you can also make your own

Endorphine rush... Yeah well... That is said quite nicely like "insane training"... Like tying it all up...

I sometimes train until I can feel the pain and then continue... Especially while training legs... Yeah, that pain *is* quite nasty...
Someone wondering why I do it? The first bit: the more I train, the more I grow. In power, you know. Might not get as much benefit considering only the strenght and stamina, which most people train for, but... The pain. The more you feel pain while training the more pain you can just shrug off when the time comes.

How did I come to do this then? What made me start such training? A normal dude would definitely stop when the pain strikes in. It's a *defensive* mechanism of body for f*'s sake, not just some kind of brain bullying trick that body does just to annoy you... So why? ...The answer is Grappler Baki. Yes, that's an anime series alright. The main character learns about endorphines (which the subbers called "brain coffee" for some reason... It's still annoyin' me... )... Yeah, so the main character learns about endorphines while doing some ultimately bad-ass training to beat a demonic warrior monkey or whateverley. One heck of a creature, by the way. Ehrm. Anyways.
The theory goes like this: You put enough strain on your muscles and they give feedback into the brain in form of a pain signal. Yeah, that's quite true, now isn't it? Then it goes on like: If you continue, ingoring the pain, the brain will attack the unpleasant feeling with endorphines (or the "brain coffee"...), negating it. Yeah, negating the suffering that you've probably prolonged just because you're a masochist or permanently numb. Or just plain insane when it comes to training. When I was just testing it out, I would've fallen just a bit into both of those categories (insane masotraining...?) and a little more than a bit into the category of plain curiosity. Of course I didn't find the feeling then. Not just for curiosity's sake.

Then again, I *am* a bit of an insane in that matter... In time, the curiosity changed into just the pain resistance training, and then just like 'pop' it came to me. The only time I recieved it. It's been almost two weeks already... Yeah well, it *did* feel nice then, and yeah, it felt like a good idea to continue because it didn't hurt anymore... Believe me, it didn't feel that good of an idea next morning anymore, less the few days after. I literally couldn't walk in the first morning...

But then again, it was a really nice experience, and when I've successfully forgotten the next few days I'm definitely going for that feeling once more!

Most definitely! Once you fully recover from it, there will be waiting a wonderful sensation of lightness as a reward! You should try it too
When you get the thing down, do it several times... It will become easier and easier... And takes less time to recover... It's very easy to get addicted to it


By the way, how's your training? Got any tips or such? Testing out, sharing methods and recieving critism is a great way to learn. And speaking of critism... You tried any of my methods?
