I am planning on doing the under 129 division at the Mundials. I weigh 133 pounds with my gi on right now. I have been watching what I eat for the last 5 days or so. It's pretty difficult to not snack on junk food. I don't usually eat too much junk food but I do love me some Kettle brand salt and pepper chips. They are organic but they are still potato chips. Anyway, I don't think I'll have a problem shaving off those few pounds over the next few weeks.
Last night we went to bjj class. Our friend Marina came with us. It was really fun having her in class. I got to work with her. We did work on a somewhat complicated sweep but she got it right so that was cool. The only thing I was worried about when I saw the sweep we were going to be working on was that Marina has never done anything like jiujitsu and that she hasn't learned how to fall correctly, yet. It worked out though.
We basically did a sweep from de la riva guard. I probably won't really use it though because I am not that comfortable with the de la riva guard yet. I will need to do more with it before I start trying sweeps from there haha. We also rolled 3 - 5 min rounds.
I am helping Noe with a group training session today. We are going to be doing a bunch of Capoeira movements. A lot of Ginga and a ton of esquivas. I bet my legs will be sore because I haven't really done any capoeira movements in a long time. It will be good though because I don't feel like I have been working my lower body enough.
Hopefully tonight Noe and I will be able to work on some positions. I'm not sure how likely that is though because I have my first final tomorrow and then I have two finals next week. I remember when taking a test only required a few hours of studying, if that. Now, in law school, I study for days for a test. Ridiculous.
