This morning's training was at the Gracie Barra West Covina. I was training with my friend, Danny Pena, on some specific training from half guard, full guard, side control, and from the back take. We did 5 minute rounds from each position with 1 minute rest while we work on both the top and bottom positions from each guard position and side control. We were pretty focused and intense with the training. The biggest thing was that we got things done before the day got started.
Things got started quick, which is great, because I'm a slow starter when it comes to training. Since I don't train as often, I had to pick up the intensity. Also, because we are both getting ready for tournaments. In tournaments, I generally don't warm up and I just go at it, but I did some corrective stretching before we got things started. Thanks Danny for today's training. Good luck in your matches and MMA fight next month.
