The Five Reactions To Watching Gabi Garcia Fight

The Five Reactions To Watching Gabi Garcia Fight

"Gabi Garcia is the subject of much discussion on the internet.  It seems that people are equal parts impressed by and scared of the way she dominates her opponents.

In the world of jiu-jitsu, her size has often overshadowed discussion of her technical skill -- perhaps as a response to a resume that shows Garcia has won just about every major accolade in the gentle art there is to win."

"Stop me if you've heard this one.  Heavyweight gets poked in the eye, ref fails to see it, heavyweight's opponent sneaks in a quick uppercut, heavyweight gets a moment to collect self, captures his opponent's arm into a double wrist lock, sweeps, works to mount and secures the finish via rear naked choke."

To the best of my knowledge, it is not Christmas yet.  And yet, somehow, here we are in August with a gift that has been surprisingly dropped into my lap. One that I never knew I needed until it was put in front of my eyes, one that I will now never be able to live without.  

This is, without hyperbole, one of the best gifts I have ever received: 

The gift of Georges St. Pierre and Steven Seagal slap fighting one another in a low-budget foreign action film."

"There are others with great jiu-jitsu, but perhaps no one who makes it look easier.  And so tonight, we saw Maia give the UFC slight pause with their intention to put Stephen 'Wonderboy' Thompson as the first offering for newly crowned welterweight champ, Tyrone Woodley.  

And like the true martial artist and respectful guy he is, Maia told Brian Stann in his post-fight interview that he'd patiently wait his turn."

Hybrid Success Challenge, Day 3

Hybrid Success Challenge, Day 3

As I outlined in my original post, a great deal of my wrestling has always come in the form of counter-wrestling.  Letting my opponent make the first move and then working to put out fires as they come up.  

It's not the smartest of strategies, but it's pretty much all I've got.  Today, I opted to try and identify a few of my worst habits so that I can hopefully start to break a few of them.
