My second workout was at the Tsunami BJJ gym in Culver City. John Ouano was the instructor for tonight's class. He went over a couple of Spider Guard breaks, Knee Slice passes, Side Control Pressure and Control, Toreando pass, set ups in transitions to the Kimura, and a failed Kimura transition to the Paper Cutter choke. I got a lot of reps in. I even did the warm ups. It helped a lot that my partner for tonight is a Black Belt from San Diego. His name is Dylan Dearborn and he teaches out of Infinity Jiu Jitsu.
I felt that I got a lot of help on my game tonight, especially on keeping pressure on top from side control and transitions during passing the guard. It was an honor to learn from John Ouano tonight, since he's one of the First Filipinos in the US to receive his Black Belt in BJJ. Being Filipino myself, I look up to someone like him. I came out healthy today and I'm ready for Sunday at the Long Beach Invitational IBJJF Open.
I'm also ready for the tournament next week at the SJJIF Worlds. I plan on competing on both the Gi and NoGi for the Ultraheavyweight Master's Blue Belt Division and competing in the Absolute for both the Gi and NoGi Blue Belt Master's Division. I have my hands full next weekend, but I feel that I have the experience, skill, and conditioning to keep up with all the matches. At this point, I just have to keep repping, keep conditioning, and stay healthy.
