Since discovering this guy I’ve been very careful about grounding and artificial light after sunset.
Sweep to Omoplata from De La.
Take a de la riva guard. Inside leg against their thigh, sit on their foot if possible, outside foot wraps around their leg. Outside hand holds their foot, other hand grabs their closer wrist. Push them away with your leg, and drag their wrist accross and infront of their body. If they try to move your foot off their thigh, circle and replace it. Drag their wrist infront of their body to your side. From here can sweep to Omma, with their thigh pushed far away. Can readjust the Omoplata to flatten their chest against the floor.
Head in single leg takedown above the knee – bad idea. If they are kneeling in this position, turn to face the same way as them, pinch legs together, and kick the leg closest to their head to break their grip. From this point can transition to crusifix etc.
For the head outside single leg from kneeling, grab their foot and bend it up into their butt, twisting it adds effectiveness here. This prevents their takedown.
Halfguard pass. From half guard top chest to chest, elbow next to their head, free leg sprawled out with no knee touching, out wide way up as high as their head. If they are on their side, walk the trapped leg up into their butt. This will allow the trapped leg to pass to mount. If they block the pass with their hand on your knee, then can underhook their arm, and slide the trapped leg really low into side control. During the transition to side control, maintain the underhook and with your free arm overhook their free arm for a really tight side control, can put all weight on them with only feet touching the ground, lifting the underhook arm off the ground. Can then step over their head for an armbar.
Reading Dead Doctors Don’t Lie, something I’ve been meaning to checkout since watching one of Dr Wallaches lectures on the internet. He reiterates how diseases are very often caused by nutritional deficiencies – that seems to be the point of his book so far. Something I’ve basically come to find, tying into the health doctrine I have for myself which is basically: eat real food. I supplement with many things, essential minerals and adaptogens. I get my carbs from Bananas mainly, although I’ll be adding potatoes back into the mix soon. The bulk of my energy comes from animal protein.. supplemented with salads, fruits and nuts. My diet is basically
6 eggs for breakfast in an omelette with sauted spinach/mushrooms. I’ve been leaving out garlic and onions lately due to the liver loading chelating effect they have – which I attribute some feelings of anger to (the rabbit hole is always there…) Two tangents: The Zapper and heavy metals. The zapper will be my next post, heavy metals ties back to the Wilking Protocol I’m sorta following at the moment.. leaving some potato on a nonstick pan with coconut oil on low heat makes a pretty awesome omelette as well.
I’ll have my supplements after that: Magnesium taurate 400mg, zinc and selenium. I’ve been adding chromium in lately aswell. I’ll have some Lysine if I have coldsore symptoms. Usually I’ll add in some ginseng caps as well.
Before breakfast a glass of spring water with a juiced lemon goes well to activate the vegas nerve (preparation for digestion). I’ll often add rhodiola/ashwaganda tincture into that too. (The Vegas nerve thing I got from an ATP podcast episode, probably a gutright episode)
I will likely soon look into getting some mineral/vitamin levels tested, here is ‘a’ list of some recommendations..
I feel like I’m on drugs after eating, after 10 days of the Gut Right diet, my movements are more regular then ever, and feel ‘right’. I’m eating less, and feel like I can feel the digestion in my gut moreso, making me feel less like throwing more food in, in the hope of more energy.. this is something..
Did a 7:30pm BJJ session last night, was really good. I’ll note that Ben Greenfield’s comments about training sooner than 3 hours before sleep messes with deep sleep. Can confirm, finished training after 9pm, under florescent lights (blue light). Feeling like I didn’t get good sleep, which I noticed during the night.. I’ll modify that in the future.. 6pm sessions from now on.
Did a butterfly sweep from guard. So if I have butterfly guard, and the have double unders.. pretty specific, perhaps I could incite this by trying to get double unders on them. Anyway then flatten you out. You can kick your legs forward, and follow with your torso to bring you back up past vertical. Fall back at 45 degrees either side, and kick the opposite leg into their butt, to sweep to mount.
Standing double under-hook defence. When they go for double unders, from over/under, pressure both their arms by using straight arms facing down. With their arm that already has your back, guillotine it, by pulling the blade of your wrist into their upper arm, while extending that guillotine into their opposite armpit, you can push their other arm across your body, so both arms are trapped under that guillotine. Step your hips and chest up against their body.
Stack defence from closed guard.
Overhook one arm of theirs, other arm is a neck tie, cupping the back of their neck. Hold this tight against them. If they go to lift you (for a slam), Simply drop the leg on the overhook side and push back, defeating their attempt to lift you. If you drop the leg on the neck tie side, they can pass your guard. bad.
Last weeks side control transition to a sub (head and arm choke?).
In side control, underhook their far arm. Crawl this hand up, while doing the same with your close arm against their head, to compress their head and arm together to some extent, while also applying chest pressure. With the close arm, grab their far armpit, allowing your far arm to move their far arm so that your head is on the far side of their far arm. Now will need to transition to the other side. Can move up to knee ride. Last night Darren described windshield wiper motion to move from knee ride to the other side. Do this, and then sprawl. Bringing your bicep down on their neck is the sub, basically.
- 35 Mins: Traumatic brain injury (Ketones, DHA, hyperbaric O2, stem cells, PEMF)
- 40 Mins: Fasting for stem cell production (~16 hours is where it kicks in).
- 44:50 Mins: Protein cycling (meatless Monday, fish/eggs only meats).Mark Sisson talks very briefly about protein cycling here.
From ‘The Primal Blueprint’:
“As you learned already, you need an average of 0.7 to one gram of protein per pound (.33 to .5 grams per kilo) of lean body weight per day to repair, build, and/or maintain lean muscle mass effectively and to adequately support numerous other metabolic functions dependent upon dietary protein”Lentils have become a really nice dish since starting this meatless day thing.. I was all over the shop going by numbers only to try to work out macronutrients – the importance of being attuned to the body is key, which is difficult when there’s a bunch of noise and you can’t hear the signal (enter #GutRight).
- 59 Mins: Cooking Steak perfectly.
- 1:13 Mins: Shouldn’t take vitamin E/C post workout
- 1:14 Mins: Cold immersion post workout to lower core temp for deep sleep (if working out within 3 hrs before sleep), importance of good sleep.
- ~1:20 fasted aerobic workout tips for fat metabolism.. + tips
- ~somewhere: need to eat leafy greens with high fat meats.
- ~1:30 Morning keto, afternoon carbs post workout. Anti ageing effects of blueberry and cacao relating to NAD
- 1:48 Coffee enemas (coffee for me = roller-coaster straight to anxiety)
So much good stuff
Darren came up to me after my second roll specifically and said great rolling, after I rolled with Chris.
pass Z guard.
grab 2 on 1 grip on their arm, grab their wrist and elbow.
Sprawl flattening their knee.
weight through their hip and shin prevents them from re-guarding.
if you’re low you’ll need to climb their body to pass their ankle
hooked ankle , foot to butt and fold your foot over theirs to allow the guard pass
Starting with a single neck tie and controlling the other elbow (right hand gripping the lower back of their head, left hand below their bicep, controlling their arm). Drilling them trying to move their right arm inside my left to control my inside elbow. Block that by pressuring my left hand against their belly. If they go outside… grab an underhook, under their right shoulder deep on their upper back. Very important to pressure down on them to avoid them stepping inside my foot and throwing me. Slowly circle back and towards the under-hook side to take them down. Plan B is to step inside their foot, and bump their leg back above the knee to help them fall.
If they aren’t allowing the under-hook; holding the neck tie and their arm, pressure forward. When they pressure back, pull their head down and under my armpit. grab an under-hook with my now free arm, circle back and take-down.
