Chad George’s “Road to Japan” blog day 9 – more hard training and Sake

Chad George along with his training partners from Roots Gym in Japan run the stairs.

Projekt Label fighter Chad “Savage” George (10-4) was recently invited to Japan to train with the camp of Japanese Shooto legend Rumina Sato. Being that Chad has a fight coming up on Nov. 14 against Greg Guzman at “Called Out MMA 2,” he saw this as the perfect opportunity to train with some of the top lighter weight fighters in the world, and as a special treat for us he is keeping a blog of his trip. Be sure to check back each day to see how things are going with Chad during this very unique experience.

Day 9

Today we got to Roots gym about 8:30 to go for the Saturday run. I am still all banged up from yesterday’s sparring, oh joy. We stretched a bit and then hit the road. After about a 2k warm up jog we made it to the same stairs as last week.

Time for sprints. Five sets of hard push sprints with push ups at the top. The length of the sprint is about 200 meters each. After the last sprint we shadow boxed at the top to cool down.

Day 8

As the trip grows closer to the end, the training picks up. Today we slept in a bit and then had a light breakfast before going to Roots gym. Once at the gym we had some coffee and then I geared up for my solo run!

Taiki stayed at the gym while I took off for a nice long distance run around the city of Odawara. I believe in all, it was about a 10k run!
