No Time To Workout?

"But I don't have time to workout" is one of the lamest excuses out there. Wade Schalles, the legendary wrestler said that it's better to do a short workout and give it 100% than to be in the gym for a long time half-a55ing it.

You should devote at least a couple of days of week when you are not training to doing some exercises on your own. If you are giving it 100%, then you don't need to work out for 2 hours. Just look at what you can do in 60 seconds.

FYI, this is legendary MMA fighter "The Gracie Hunter" Kazushi Sakuraba.

Washington Post Mention

The Washington Post did an article this weekend on Stefan, who has been teaching the striking class on Mondays while Val is away at training for his new job with the Feds. As you can see from the article, Stefan has been busy lately so we really appreciate his instruction and support of the school.

In other news, Everyone did really well at the Copa Nova Tournament this past weekend. I will post the results as soon as they are available.

Move Reviews

Dave Kang put together a summary of the guard passing and re-guarding techniques from monday's class. We will post it on the Capitol Combat Sports Facebook page for you to review. I will also post a summary of the syllabus from the overhook series from last week on Facebook as soon as I can. If you don't have Facebook, let me remind you that it's 2009 so get with the program. Also, don't share these summaries with people outside the club.

Also, if you haven't signed up for the email list, send an email to Aaron and he will add you to the listserv so we can keep you in the loop about what is going on at the club. We plan on meeting up somewhere this weekend to watch the UFC fight. If you don't sign up for the email list, then you will probably be drinking alone. Nuff' said.
