This website is about Brazilian jiu jitsu (BJJ). I'm a purple belt who started in 2006, teaching and training at Artemis BJJ in Bristol, UK. All content ©2004-2016 Can Sönmez

Class #847
Artemis BJJ (MYGYM Bristol), Can Sönmez, Bristol, UK - 18/07/2017

Didn't do much today, as I'm trying to conserve myself before Leuven. Also, I seem to have experienced the return of a few old injuries. Firstly, my neck, or rather the area of upper back just around the neck), which often seems to get sore if I've played a lot of closed guard. I think that comes from maintaining posture inside closed guard in an overly strained way, taking the pressure on that area of my back. Thrusting the hips will hopefully help, relying less on arms too.

The second injury returning is more irritating, as it's my left hip flexor again. Last time that took aaaaages to heal, so I'm keen to avoid a repeat of that. Hence why I stopped sparring and haven't done any squats this week either, which is a shame, but I really don't want to be stuck with that injury for several months.
