We train to win fights. At the same time, we make training fun. We train hard, push the envelope and understand when it is time for full 100% intensity. We have trained for 1000’s of fights in Muay Thai, MMA, Kickboxing, Boxing, Bare Knuckle Boxing, Shooto, Shoot Boxing, Army Combatives Tournaments…as well as, street fights, Security/Bouncer/Door squabbles, bouncer/door, self defense… we understand training to win! We also understand that you have to enjoy the process, because there are going to be many times where it is really tough mentally, physically and emotionally (if you are pushing your limits). Train seriously and enjoy it when you can, so you can drive through the rough days and tough times. Training is a lifestyle for me. Figuring out how to train as my body ages, but still pushing when I can push. #training #havefun #kickass #fight #traintowin #dowhatyoulove #lovewhatyoudo #pushlimits #kickboxing #boxing #mma #muaythai @theacademymn @cswassociation @worldthaiboxingassociation @gn_funkertactical @therageng @pedrosauer_bjja @francisfongacademy @natmcintyre ...

It is about consistency over time. There are times when I am sore, didn’t get enough sleep, feel lazy…make up what ever excuse fits…and it could be easy to not do what you set out to do. Now, it is not always going to be great, it can’t be! But, that is not going to stop me from doing what I set out to do. This is why it is important to have a schedule, in my case I have set times for training and teaching. There have been many times when I felt blah at the start of training and then as I started moving I started to feel good, even great. Every day is a blessing, full of learning and training opportunities. I will show up, I will do what I set out to do, good or less than, and over time learn, grow and get better and better. I am not in a race to get to the finish line. I am striving to just keep going and when that finish line comes I am one of the last ones running or walking or crawling…but still in the process of doing what I love to do. #dowhatyoulove #lovewhatyoudo #keepgoing #noexcuses #justdoit #train #enjoythejourney #process #martialartslife #dogood #do #be #consistency #time #training #bjj #muaythai #grappling #wrestling #filipinomartialarts #junfangungfu #jkd #f1firearms #combatives @theacademymn @cswassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @worldthaiboxingassociation @natmcintyre @guapogrinch @ninanels0n ...

Life is a fight and it is pretty kick ass. Sometimes you are able to bob and weave and evade, sometimes you have to roll with the punches…and sometimes you get full on sucker punched, get up and fight back. I have been full on mugged by life where every minute of everyday for months was a real fight for my life. But, thankfully the majority of my life has been made up of fighting in some way. Through competitive sports, pushing myself because I really wanted to win… A lot! Through the Martial Arts and training super hard because I wanted to be the best I could be. Through actually fighting, and training to fight, and being really competitive with my training partners, and even more with myself to do better and not give in or give up. In other words, FIGHT everything that was trying to hold me down and keep me back from where I want to be. #fight #nevergiveup #lifeisafight #fightingisfun @theacademymn @worldthaiboxingassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @cswassociation ...

Muay Thai tonight we focused on attacking primarily from the left side. Starting with flicking Jabs to a quick switch kick, then back to Jabs and feints, to a quick switch Cross to a replacing step followed by the one right Cross to Left Kick. The goal is to be loose and relaxed, moving as if you are sparring.

Training is the heart of the martial arts lifestyle. The goal is to be constantly striving to be the best you can be, and that should be ordinary to you. It means doing things that are going to stretch your limits, make you fail and have to figure shot out on the fly. It is about truly living the experience and enjoying the process. #dowhatyoulove #lovewhatyoudo #training #flow #enjoythemoment #embracethejourney #livelife #be #do #filipinomartialarts #martialartslife #inosantolineage @theacademymn @cswassociation @francisfongacademy @inosantodaniel ...

Once you have solid position and maintaining constant pressure you can start to initiate the pass. The better you get the more you can set up the passes you prefer, however your opponents energy, pressure and movement will often dictate which path is best to take. #positions #pressure #passing #energy #bjj #grappling #mma @theacademymn @cswassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @worldthaiboxingassociation ...

When a person understands position, has good posture, maintain constant pressure, knows what to prevent and protect they can do a lot of pounding, pummeling and punching from on top. There are a lot of targets to hit and gravity is on your side.

It is no secret to me how faith, hope and love has always kept me fighting. I have been broken, dropped, fallen, failed, been stuck in the mire, and had to crawl and drag myself out of the valley of the shadow of death. Physically you can be taken down pretty fast, just think about the last time you got hit by a bad flu. Mentally it takes longer, but depending on the pain and suffering, that breaks down in time. Don’t fool yourself, enough pain and suffering, for long enough, and you will break and need something above and beyond. Faith in the Lord, hope and love supplies a spiritual power to keep you fighting when everything seems to be falling down around and in you. I do believe in “I can do all things through Christ” and that builds a strong mental attitude. When you truly know in your heart and mind what’s worth fighting for, and believe that the Lord has put in you the strength to endure and keep fighting, you simply keep going until you are out of the abyss. I have no doubt in the Lord and faith in His power to work miracles and wonders. #lord #god #jesus #faith #hope #love #endure #fight #perseverance #believe #prayer #miracle #gratitude @theacademymn @cswassociation @erikpaulson @worldthaiboxingassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @ninanels0n @guapogrinch @rosenamajunas @hypeordie ...

Attitudes are more important that facts! Any facts, no matter how crushing, difficult, fatiguing, painful… and seemingly hopeless, is not as important as our attitude towards that fact. I was told I had liver cancer, and then stage 4 cancer… but that is where I stopped the facts I wanted to hear. I said “I DO NOT want to hear any numbers, statistics… I just want to know what we have to do to fight and beat this BS.” I wanted to know nothing about numbers, stages, nor statistics. In my mind, none of those things had anything to do with me. All I cared about was dealing with the moment and beating cancer. I had no idea what battles would come, but I did know that I would fight and wanted see my kids grow up. Truth be told, I had lived most of my life competing and wanting to push myself, fighting through whatever I had to fight through. Fact is, I liked pushing myself hard, taking challenges, fighting and looking for ways to battle to the next level. Never did I think that I would have to fight cancers, but when the fight came my attitude superseded the facts and statistics. #attitude #fight #challenge #nevergiveup #idontcare #attitudeiseverything #cancersucks #stage4cancer #livercancer #chemo #dowhatittakes #fighton #remission #challengeaccepted #bringiton #mindset @theacademymn @cswassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @worldthaiboxingassociation @guapogrinch @ninanels0n ...

I know for fact that ‘Attitudes are more important than facts.’ When I didn’t know what was wrong with me, was misdiagnosed several times and was getting worse by the day, that sucked! However, after my CT scan and the Drs said, “Go to North Memorial Hospital” and then had a liver biopsy, I was told “you have cancer”. I was actually relieved because now I had an opponent to fight. Not knowing was worse than knowing. Once I knew I had cancer my attitude went to training mode to get ready for a fight. Of course, this was a fight for my life, but I did not see it like that, it was just another fight. Now, this fight would get tougher and tougher, but my attitude to fight and never give up would not waver. #attitude #attitudeiseverything #fight #mentality #mindset #nevergiveup @theacademymn @cswassociation @worldthaiboxingassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @guapogrinch @ninanels0n ...

Since we started leg locking under Sensei Yuri Nakamura is Shoot Wrestling in the early 90’s, it was always about being precise about arm placement and to set the bone on bone, bone on nerve to quick kill. This is especially true in fighting where getting your face bashed in and brain trauma is a real concern. In CSW we have focused on leg attacks since the early 90’s and haven’t stopped. #quick #speed #precision #placement #legattacks #anklelock #leglocks #shooto #csw @theacademymn @cswassociation @erikpaulson @pedrosauer_bjja @cswtrainingcenterhq @francisfongacademy ...

Once you have the ability to effectively box, kickbox, wrestle, Shoot Box (kickboxing with Takedowns) … once you have warmed up and ready, you need to be able to drill and move at an effective fight speed. @themusclesharksherk would do glove drills and focus mitts to shots and takedowns at fight speed WITH CONTROL. When you do that you are mentally and physically preparing for the speed and intensity of a real fight. You are getting in fight level conditioning, and building fight level timing. There is a lot of time work specific techniques, drill and flow at a nice pace. But, when you are getting ready to spar or doing mitt work it is time to amp up the speed and work at fight pace. #training #speed #conditioning #mentaltoughness #timing #intensity #preparation #fight #pace #pressure @theacademymn @cswassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @worldthaiboxingassociation @themusclesharksherk ...

Working on cracking the Overhand Right when you make your opponent throw a pressed punch or kick. Once the fight has been going for a while and fist and feet are flying, if you press your opponent it will prompt an attack of some sort. Being 100% ready to drop a bomb you force the ‘less than ready’ shot and full power overhand followed by shots to drop your opponent.

When I look back I can honestly say that I’ve gotten through but I’ve gotten through because of what I’ve done and how I did it. I pushed hard, push my limits, shed a lot of blood, sweat and tears doing it. For the most part I love doing it, but there are times when it was tough and hurt. But, those are the times that you got to get through and do whatever you Gotta do to make it through. Those are the times that make you who you are and that you can look back on and say, “I’m here today because of what I’ve gotten to do and what I’ve gotten through.” No one can take that away from you. So when times get tough, when the doubts creep in, when the pressure gets high, when your body hurts, your frustrated, failing and feeling like you can’t keep going….you can and you will because you have before and here now.

You get to choose how you deal with what you are given. You can’t control what you can’t control, but you can control how you choose to use it. You can choose to experience the life you want and change what you want to change, to do what you want to do, and be who you want to be. Know what you believe, your convictions and what you are willing to fight for and then choose to fight for the life you want. Refuse to conform to structures and systems that are contrary to your best life. Be kind to those around you. Choose to be with those you want to be with, and treat them with respect and honor their friendship. Protect the life you want, protect your energy, health and wellbeing. Protect your attitude and state of mind. Protect what you believe in, have faith in, hope for and love.

When I find old pictures of my battle with cancers back to back, it is kind of surreal. It was a brutal struggle, full of pain and suffering, doubt, despair, and bombarded by feeling of being overwhelmed. I had my family, friends, students, Drs, nurses, and countless thoughts and prayers surrounding me. I was ripped of my physical strength, mentally fatigued, often emotionally spent and was kept in the fight by faith and the love of God. I know that neither death nor life, no angels, no powers or principalities, nothing that exists or is yet to come that can come between us and the love of God. It is our greatest trials and tribulations that we have to surrender to the power of His love, and he provided what we need to do what is required. I didn’t need to know stats, what was going on, the opinions of what could, might, will happen, what procedures, or things that were going to be put in or taken out of me. Bottom line, I was so looped up on pain killers, and chemical cocktails that it was all babble anyway. However, I never lost faith, and continually prayed and called on Jesus, especially when I was being attacked and bombarded by negative thoughts, wondering why this was happening, would I get to see my kids grow up, the times alone with me and my pain , and the beeps and buzzing of machines. The fight was constant, and when I was physically, mentally and enotionally shot, it was my faith that fueled the determination to get through the moment, and the next. I had to surrender my all to God so He could give me what He required of me to keep crawling through the valley of the shadow of death. When I am going through any trial, I have proof that God will provide what He requires of me to get through it. We all do! #god #faith #fight #surrender #love #persevere #jesus #jesuschrist #trials #suffering #pain #tribulation #triumph #prayer #family #friends #medicine #dr #nurses #nevergiveup #kids @guapogrinch @ninanels0n @patnelson45 @jeffnelson6767 @andy.grahn @natmcintyre @erikpaulson @theacademymn @worldthaiboxingassociation @francisfongacademy @inosantodaniel @pedro_sauer_ @pedrosauer_bjja @ishmaelbentley ...
