MMA’S Biggest Loser – Fast Eddie’s week 2 recap

Class is in session for Fast Eddie at the Guerilla Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Pleasanton, Calif.

Well, week two is now in the books. What a week it was. My training increased this week, from two to three days. Monday started off normally with two Guerrilla Jiu-Jitsu classes. This was the first time in years that I have had the opportunity to roll and train with higher belts. Insert Roscoe Roatch.

Roscoe is a purple belt under Dave Camarillo and will run the classes when Dave is not around. Training with Roscoe was great for several reasons. First and foremost, his care and concern for my physical limitations with my back was so appreciated.

He did not set out to hurt me but to help me get reacquainted with the details of my technique that have built up a considerable amount of rust. However, after the two classes the rust started falling off quickly and I felt myself getting back on the bike.

Gracie Combatives – a PROMMA.INFO product review

Order Gracie Combatives or learn more at www.graciecombatives.com.

I had the pleasure of being introduced to Ryron Gracie at the Hope of Mother Charity event. Ryron and his brother Rener are close friends to Tareq Azim and came out to show his support.

In talking with the son of Rorion Gracie (UFC founder and creator), the discussion quickly shifted to the focus of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Ryron and his family believe, and rightfully so, that the focus of BJJ schools are on competition and not self defense.

“There is no point in learning the half guard if you cannot escape a headlock.” This was the motivation in Ryron and Rener in creating the Gracie Combatives DVD’s. They wanted to spread the word and ideals that was taught to them by their grandfather, Grandmaster Helio Gracie.

As most of you know, I am an avid MMA Junkie Radio fan. While listening to John Morgan on a recent episode talking about his desire to lose weight, the idea dawned on me.

From sniper, to SWAT, to the cage, Bruce Connors has faced it all

Bruce Connors is a SWAT team member.

Bruce Connors is a former Marine scout sniper and current law enforcement officer and SWAT officer. Bruce joined The INFO on the recent episode and shared his thoughts on maintaining a balance between serving his community and serving his goals as a professional athlete.

This makes competing in the Mixed Martial Arts arena seem docile by comparison. “I am either working or I am training,” said Connors. “You feel pretty selfish because it takes you away from your family and friends. The pressure can be there but as long as you keep a balance, everything can work.”
