…actually that is not true…what I actually hate is sparring…well…actually that’s not true…what I hate is that fact that when you are sparring you are pulling your punches and kicks…and that just shits me. The thing is you are both supposed to be going at ‘60%’ or whatever you’re told…that never happens…one person is always at 60% and the other is at 62%. I always want to be the one at 98% while the other guy is at 60%…that would suit me fine. I really enjoyed training tonight we did a lot of high quality punching work…well it was supposed to be high quality…mine was crap quality…but the only way is up. I really need to do so much more work…on everything. I had a round with Aaron at the end of training and I was glad he was pulling his punches when he landed a right hand that if he had of really connected would of spun my head around like a top.
I am really looking forward to the new year when my work schedule is going to ease up a bit and I can devote more time to the technical side of MMA. I want to try to spend as much time ‘on mat’ as I can. You can do as much ‘off mat’ training as you like…nothing compares with actually ‘competing’ and ‘training’ in the sport you are involved in obviously.
