Chasing the dream.

While on the bike bath yesterday, I realized a dream, or maybe a goal. And that is one day being able to win NAGA (North American Grappling Association) champion. Though, it would be very difficult, and I would have to really adjust my style around points, rather than just submission.

I feel I am still young enough to reach my full grappling potential, I'd love to travel and train with various schools and instructors. But life at the particular season is taking me different places.

But I still want to chase this dream, no matter how hard it may be.

This is the goal.







A gold medal would be nice...

Weight cuts and progress

Since my last update, I've been enjoying my summer break. Soon I will head back to school for my second year of college. A week ago I was pretty sick, it started off with a cold, but then I began to feel really week. In short, with all the training my body wasn't consuming enough calories.

I would only eat 1 or 2 times a day, for the simple fact that in my next tournament I'd like to compete at 125 pounds. Yet there is risk involved with that, with almost zero body fat I think I'd loose some muscle mass as well.

The fact is, the less I weighed, the less stress my body would have to carry. (That's always a plus with C.P.) The tournament isn't until august 24th, so I might give the weight cut another try. Only I'd be much more smart about it.

I'm learning a ton, and hope to achieve my blue belt soon, if not. I'll just keep on truckin.

take care all.
