    Note to Self- Improvement in grappling/takedowns/wrestling (3-steps). Research other grappling arts: dumog, kato pale, lua, mushti yuddha, chin na, shui jiao, judo, jujutsu, aikido, hapkido, jiujitsu (simple, direct, non-telegraphed, fluid). Focus on stand-up grappling/takedowns (w/ arms & legs). No-holds-barred. Efficiency is anything that works. Basics only. Sink lower (keep belly button below opponent's belly button)

    I'm more inclined to believe that this training log is total bs and he's writting this on his lunch break while watching videos of the exercises

    Any video of the challenge match? Who got a 15 second KO?
    Also I really like adding videogames to your training routine. Going to have to do that, see if that motivates me to train more :D

    Hmmm... :D

    In reference to last week's fight, I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, so to make a long story short, like everyone already said my kungfu is fiction, my skills are no good and everything I say or do is BS anyway so I have no comment. The opponent kicked me in the face and broke my neck and now I'm dead (lol).

    In reference to videogames, however, I'm doing very good (lol not really- I can't beat this stupid GTA flying mission). In all seriousness, I never actually played a whole lot of videogames when I was young. I just started playing casually within the last few years. I don't really take videogames seriously, but they can be fun and useful for training as far as mental enhancement and mental awareness, focus and hand-eye-coordination. Playing videogames (especially after a hard day) can help you to relax. I play videogames for probably about 15 to 20 minutes every other day or so. I don't like to waste too much time sitting down in front of the TV screen. It's more for therapeutic reasons than anything else. I also play chess sometimes.

    The reflection I had last week was "Know your enemy." This is not a reference to the opponent, but a reference to oneself as being their own worst enemy. I noticed after the fight why I actually won, and it's because my opponent was too nervous. To be honest, he lost the match before it even began. I had no doubt I was going to win. That's why I won. But it made me reflect on my own personal demons for a moment. "Know your enemy!" is all I kept hearing in my head. "Know your enemy! Know your enemy!" After the fight was already over, I still had to restrain myself from pounding the guy. That was my anger turning into rage and going for the overkill. Luckily, someone grabbed my arm and yelled "It's over, enough! He's done bro!" and that was it. A few hours later, I was at home playing videogames (lol).

    Hey, so, just to put out there, I have a problem with the last paragraph. that's not normal, rational, sane behavior, my friend. My belief is that you are kind of making things up as you go, and if so, have at it. But in the off chance you ACTUALLY got into a fight like that, you should consider talking to a professional.

    Why not give us some detail about it. Why wereyuou fighting, what did you do to finish in 15 seconds where were you. And seriously if this is true someone needs to fire you from your security job if you have no self control

    Every single word of it is true.

    He kicked me in the face and broke my neck. In my previous post I was dead, but since then I came back to life. But while I was dead, I kept hearing voices in my head. When I exited my body, I saw myself pounding Chuck Norris into the dust (we were fighting on the moon). I didn't want to fight but he forced me to accept his challenge in person. I beat him with an inverted neck swinging headbutt. He was grossed out and terrified. It only took fifteen seconds of me swinging my broken neck around before he fell over and tried to scream. I was about to finish him off, but then Bruce Lee grabbed my arm and told me to eat a Snickers candybar. Afterwards, we played videogames. If you don't believe me, ask Chuck Norris' barber. He was there. So was Bruce Lee's waterboy.
