Jiu Jitsu Diary - 9

Diego 2. Man, this guy loves drills. And cardio. Hip escapes, bear crawls, one legged bear crawls, push-ups, sit-ups. And then a thousand arm bars.

Diego 2, Diego Bezerra, Brown Belt, fights out of AKA out in San Jose. And he's hungry. The real deal. Does wrestling and Muay Thai down there with AKA's pro team, and then shoots up to San Francisco about five days a week to do Muay Thai night classes with Kru Sam and teach BJJ Tuesdays and Thursdays. He's training hard for his US MMA debut, which should be coming up soon. He's already 2-1 pro down in Brazil and now is training his ass off and spreading his knowledge. He's a worker and just embraces drills, drills, drills, along with sparing. So right now, it's all about fundamentals. It was just me and him yesterday, so I got a private lesson and we basically did Armbars from Guard a thousand times. Good times.
