Finding moments of extreme focus is especially important if you are at home outside of your normal routine. Often times when we are away from where we normally do our deep work it can be easy to fall onto the couch with the clicker. You can still do that, however find moments throughout your day where find yourself in extreme focus. That may be done in training, in study, writing, drawing... whatever. We have an opportunity to work on that focus now that we have more time. Take advantage of this time so that when we get back to our ‘normal’ life, our normal will be better! #focus #time #deepwork #learn #growth #goodbetterbest #hardwork #workhard #dowhatyoulove #lovewhatyoudo @theacademymn @cswassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @worldthaiboxingassociation @davidmleitch @87elevenaction ...

Just did a 35+ minute choke class from my living room on my homemade Dummy named Rona. Right before hand I showed how to make a quick training dummy with a backpack, a pillow and foam roller. Be creative! If you want to really train, you’ll figure out a way to do it. ‘Dedicated to the Creative and Hard Work Working Individual and to the Integrity of the Combative Martial Arts’ @theacademymn mission. #creative #training #noexcuses #bjj @cswassociation @pedrosauer_bjja ...

Through Guru Dan Inosanto I have trained Maphilindo Silat which is a blend of Malaysian Bersilat, Filipino Kuntao Silat, Indonesian Pentjak Silat with Muay Thai entries. I also trained with Pendekar Paul de Thouars in Pukulan Pentjak Silat Bukti Negara. I learned the formal Jurus, which changed, but I would rather free flow and flower up the actual movements. Why? Why the hell not? I do so much straight forward no nonsense fight training that it is refreshing to simply flower it up and flow. #silat #maphilindo #pentjaksilat #freeflow #flow #fight #fun #martialarts #energy #inosanto #inosantolineage #training @theacademymn @cswassociation @worldthaiboxingassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @inosantodaniel ...

You are in charge of how you decide to feel and think about what Is going on around you. Everyone is going through this experience right now, but not everyone is experiencing it the same way. Personally, I choose to go through this with optimism and with a positive mind set. I take in only what I need to hear and do not allow anxiety or fear take hold of my thoughts. Life is going to happen, time is going to tick by and the animals, birds, and bugs are going to come out. The weather is going to warm up, the sun will shine, then go down so that moon can reflect its light. I’m in power over my state of mind and I choose to be _______________. #able #bold #courage #discipline #energy #focus #gratitude #happy #healthy #inspire #joy #kind #love #motivation #nevergiveup #optimistic #positivevibes #quicktoforgive #ready #steady #tough #understanding #victorious #wisdom #xoxo #yolo #zeal @theacademymn @cswassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @worldthaiboxingassociation ...

Not a soul around, I’m by myself and swinging things around. Pretty normal for me when I am out of @theacademymn . I am never bored because I’m not boring! When I decide not to do anything it is by choice. It may be 30 degrees out, but it is sunny ☀️ and the air is crisp and clean. Don’t stop moving, eat health, drink water, get your sleep and deal with what life throws your way. I have not turned on my TV in 3 days. Been watching old training videos, cleaning my house (just one room a day), still training 2-3 hours a day, listening to music, reading and going to start drawing today. #keepgoing #liveyourbestlife #lifehappens #dowhatyoulove #lovewhatyoudo #takecareofyourself #healthylifestyle #martialartslife #filipinomartialarts #becreative #improvement #goodbetterbest #nevergiveup @theacademymn @cswassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @worldthaiboxingassociation ...

Yes, it is 11:15pm and I am doing nunchucks in my living room. Excuse me, but what the hell else would you do if you found a pair a these bad boys. As for me I will swing them like I do it everyday, even though I haven’t had them in my hands since the last time I found them. I believe more damage has been done to the person swinging them and to anything close to them than to anything else in the history of these tools of self destruction. #nunchucks #selfdestruction #danger #damage #jkd #martialarts #thelumineers @theacademymn @cswassociation @erikpaulson ...

You have to stand guard at the gates of your mind and protect against misinformation and negativity from being coughed in your face. Keeping up to date is important, but to watch anything other than legitimate sources is feeding your anxieties. Focus on your health and wellbeing. Focus on being a positive role model. Focus using this time to learn something new and keep yourself strong. #positive #optimism #guardyourmind #guardyourheart #protectyourenergy #protect #mentalhealth #wellness #beresponsible #movement #keepgoing #keepmoving #time #martialartslife #bjj #muaythai #grappling #filipinomartialarts #jkd #energy @theacademymn @cswassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @worldthaiboxingassociation ...

A blast from the past 12/2/85 I was 20 years old. Sifu Rick Faye and I went up to Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada to do a seminar with Mitz Bandiera. The weekend started with being denied entry into Canada having a car load of weapons... Mitz came to the US, picked up our training gear and drive back into Canada. The plan was we would Rambo across the border and then meet up with Mitz on a dirt road once into Canada. Well, we eventually crouch sprinted across the bridge into Canada, jumped the fence and ran into the woods, hunkered down and waited for a Mountie to leave the border patrol station. Once he drove off we began to run to the dirt road. Mitz was not there. We started running deeper into Canada and knowing Mounties we’re driving up and down the road, we dodged every car that drove by. Well, it was cold and drizzly, it was late at night and we were getting cold. We had been running and dodging cars for a couple of hours. Finally we had no choice, we were heading towards hyperthermia and decided we had to flag down the next car, Mountie or not. We did and wouldn’t ya now it, it was Mitz. He said, “where have you guys been? I’ve been driving up and down this road for the last 2 hours” 😳 Good times. That was just the beginning to our Canadian seminar experience that weekend. #seminar #dumog #filipinomartialarts #junfangungfu #jkd #muaythai #1985 #canada #adventure #teaching #training #martialartslifestyle @theacademymn @mkginternational @mnkaligroup @cswassociation @erikpaulson ...

A minute of 22 minutes of Carenza where I mumble my musings about what we all are dealing with. It might be time to simplify, to build an area of your life, to create, to reflect and meditate, to become more flexible.... this is a time to reinvent and grow better, faster, stronger. If want to watch the entire talk head over to my Facebook page or our Academy YouTube channel.

Just threw a 15 minute home training video on The Academy YouTube and my Facebook page. This is a great opportunity to develop a more crushing cross choke. To drill to become better, faster and stronger from the guard. Working off your back will also keep your guard muscles strong. Keep moving and being creative with your home training.

When I was in Rochester Mayo Hospital for months in 2002-03, Sifu Rick Faye brought me a Choking Dummy. He made it for me so I could keep busy and get my ‘choke on’ if needed. No matter what, you have to keep going and growing. That is what we do, we keep on keeping on! #keepgoing #keepgrowing #training #nevergiveup #choke #bjj #dummy @theacademymn @pedrosauer_bjja @cswassociation @worldthaiboxingassociation @mnkaligroup ...

My new training partner lets me totally choke, crank, crush, torque, twist and smash without a single complaint. I have a grappling dummy in the garage, but I am using this because a made it from Gis, towels and tape. If you want to train then be creative. You can still sharpen the techniques and tools with a variety of training methods. “Dedicate to the Hard Working and Creative Individual” Opera Non Verba! #training #creative #homegym #drill #sharpentheaxe #keepgoing #nevergiveup #study #dosomethingeveryday @theacademymn @cswassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @worldthaiboxingassociation @mkginternational @mnkaligroup @ Minnesota Martial Arts Academy ...

I want nothing more than for this COVID 19 virus to run its course and get back to our normal everyday lives. But, it is running its course and the healthy do not have as much to worry about. Those dealing with compromised immune systems, battling disease and sickness and the elderly have a different reality. I am a stubborn nonconformist but, I have also been the one with the compromised immune system battling disease and sickness. My dad died from complications of diabetes when I was fighting cancer. My mom is now in her 80’s and healthy. Yes, having to shut down schools and interrupt our normal routine is a pain in the ass, but we need to have compassion for those not as healthy and strong. Maybe my views are different having gone through cancer, chemo, cancer and more chemo, having a seriously compromised immune system and a mom in her 80’s, but I am gonna move through this with a good attitude, bold and strong, and have compassion for those that are dealing with far more than me. #compassion #strong #bold #leadership #beentheredonethat #livedit #mom #takecareofyourself #bestrong #helpothers #openmind #caring @theacademymn @cswassociation @worldthaiboxingassociation @pedrosauer_bjja ...

‘There’s a dragon with matches that’s loose on the town.

Take a whole pail of water just to cool him down.’

Well, woke up this morning the same way as the last. Stick in my hand, ready to kick some ass.
Still liv’n my life like it’s mine to live.
Be thankful and happy I still have much to give.
Still feeling great, not a little bit sick.
So I’ll get up in the morning a keep swinging my stick.

We are in some crazy times with all the attention going to COVID 19. Do not allow it to rob you of your attention to those you love, to what you love and to the life you have right now. Things in your life are being interrupted. Unless you are sick and fighting for your health, that is all it is an interruption. I battled cancer for an entire year. I was in hospital rooms for many months straight. I lost my ability to walk and was in so much pain I had to be medicated, sedated and given ketamine for extended periods. When I was able I spent as much time as I could with my kids, my family and my closest friends. There was a lot of the time when all my focus was on the fight. I had to fight the pain, fight to breathe, fight the demons and doubts that would try to take over. I wasn’t going to let it win. I wasn’t going to let it take me away from my kids without giving everything I had, and I did. I was in that fight for a solid year before I was able to go home to stay. Then, I had to relearn how to walk, then do the martial arts. The whole time I was on opioids and assorted meds to deal with the pain. I spent as much time as possible being with my kids. They were why I fought so hard to live. That and the fact I didn’t know anything else but to fight. Now, those days are like a surreal story that I get to vaguely remember. So, in these times when our normal routine is interrupted focus on all the blessings you have, your family, friends and be grateful you are not in the midst of a battle. And if you are, fight back, never give up and do not allow your attention and time be robbed away by fear. #fight #nevergiveup #interruption #perspective #gratitude #health #family #sons #daughters #worthfightingfor #ife #live #love #time #energy #attention @theacademymn @cswassociation @worldthaiboxingassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @ninanels0n @guapogrinch ...

We are experiencing a new Coronavirus Disease and currently 41 people have died. Liver cancer alone kills around 27,000 every year. That comes down to about 74 deaths from liver cancer every single day. What about all cancers? Well, in the US, of the 1,740,000 new cancers found each year, about 610,000 people will die. Regarding who is at risk for the Coronavirus, it is those that are going through chemotherapy and have there immune systems compromised. It is the elderly, obese and people who have willingly compromised their respiratory system by smoking. I have dealt with having a seriously compromised immune system by cancer and chemo. I’ve been bed ridden for months in hospitals. I’ve had to be on so much morphine that my breathing slowed to nothing. I had to be put on 48 hour ketamine drips because the morphine wasn’t working. I had years of opioids (another death dealer in the US with 70,000 deaths a year, about 130/day die in the US from overdose). I was on methadone for many years along with other pain meds to deal with nerve pain. Perspective is prudent. The Coronavirus has had 5,840+/- deaths globally and a 97% survival rate. Cancer will take +/- 9,500,000 people globally this year, about the same last year, more next year, and on... eh, fuck it, it’s just cancer. #cancer #survivor #coronavirus #perspective #opioidcrisis #healthylifestyle #life #wellbeing #fight #nevergiveup #thinkaboutit #facts @theacademymn @pedrosauer_bjja @cswassociation @worldthaiboxingassociation ...

When you get someone’s leg in the air your opponent may grab your head in attempts to balance and counter you. Here Gunnar throws my hand off as he walks backward, throwing me to mat and immediately gaining control. Remember, everything starts with your stance, getting to a strong tie, setting up the takedown, going for the takedown while maintaining a strong position and continuing to move until you secure the takedown. You can drill each component individually, blend them together in parts, but you have to put it all together and drill with intent. Ultimately, you have to train it live and test it. #wrestling #takedowns #singleleg #training #drill #test #refine #position #control #setup #finish #blend #grappling #fatherandson @theacademymn @cswassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @worldthaiboxingassociation @guapoghoul @pirateswrestling ...

Been there done that. Here I was in the in my first battle with cancer Stage IV Liver Cancer. I had 2 tumors on my liver (one on each lobe), some spleen involvement, spots on my kidneys and swollen lymph nodes all throughout my body. Here in the middle of CHOP Chemotherapy, a monthly cocktail of cyclophosphamide, hydroxydaunorubicin (doxorubicin hydrochloride), oncovin (vincristine sulfate) and prednisone, I had lost all my hair and weighed about 135 pounds. I made every effort to keep a positive attitude and during my battle never once asked or cared about statistics. Here I jest about “getting my affairs in order” but, they told my then wife, to ‘get our affairs in order.’ Well, I had different thoughts, which were all on doing whatever I had to do to win the fight. I did beat it, well, so we thought, until round 2 came. My second bout was the real brutal fight. #cancersucks #cancersurvivor #twice #fight #nevergiveup #positiveattitude #livercancersurvivor #chemosucks #chemotherapy #whateverittakes #health #survivor #fighter #attitude #gratitude #keepgoing @theacademymn @cswassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @worldthaiboxingassociation ...

Sweep single with my son Gunnar @guapoghoul The Sweep Single is a great takedown in that you swing your opponent’s to avoid being sprawled directly on. Pushing into your opponent and waiting for them to pressure back is a great set up. Once you feel their pressure you drop and swing around allowing them to drop where you were. #pressure #release #sweepsingle #wrestling #grappling #takedowns #singleleg #setup #fatherandson #son #passiton @theacademymn @cswassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @pirateswrestling @scientificwrestling ...

There are so many different training methods. You will have many different phases of your life. You can’t always be 100% and you whatever that 100% is, it will change as you go through life. You may not always have the best environment to train in. You may have to train at home. You may be going through who knows what. Life happens. But, if you are going to train, train at the level you can, when you can, wherever you are. That level might be simply going through the motions. The key is going through the correct motions. Slow or fast, just do them the best you can. Go through the motions RIGHT. #training #gothroughthemotions #doitright #practice #habits #drill #trainingmethods #be #do #havefun #enjoytheprocess #bjj #muaythai #jkd #wingchun #grappling #mma #filipinomartialarts @theacademymn @cswassociation @worldthaiboxingassociation @pedrosauer_bjja ...

Frick’n Rocket Surgery, right? As much of a no brainer this is, there is so much we can do to be healthier, more fit, focused and able to fight back when fighting back is necessary. Being fit, being a fighter, having a Never Give Up Attitude... have me the foundation to fight back against cancer. There was no guarantee, in fact, the statistics were hugely against my surviving. What the statistics did not take into account was that I was fit, kicked my own ass everyday, pushed my limits, fought against the inner quitter every time I trained, built a habit of showing up and working hard, worked through discomfort and pain... I became the first survivor of Neurolymphomatosis (cancer in my sciatic nerve) that Mayo Hospital knew of. I didn’t know anything other than to fight and keep fighting until I lived or died, but I would Never Give Up! So, in this current Coronavirus environment I am focusing on my health, fitness and ability to fight! So, what am I doing: Eating a clean healthy diet, Drinking a lot of water, washing my hands a bunch, getting a lot of sleep, training every day, keeping my life as clean as I can, maintaining an optimistic and positive mindset... I’ve battled Stage IV Liver Cancer and Neurolymphomatosis, months of chemotherapy, loads of morphine, blood clots, temporary diabetes, too many different drugs to remember, a full body stem cell transplant...and didn’t stop fighting until I became a ‘cancer survivor’ ... twice!! So, I am doing what I have always done, maybe a little more hand washing, but I am prepared for whatever may come. I don’t want to get sick, but I do not fear it! I am focused on health, fitness , fighting and never giving up! #healthylifestyle #healthyfood #water #sleep #fitness #fighting #nevergiveup #fight #focus #clean #washmyhands #survivor #fighter #martialartslife #tough @theacademymn @cswassociation @worldthaiboxingassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @ninanels0n @guapoghoul ...

Life is a trip, enjoy the ride. Along that ride you are going to have ups and downs, mountains tops and crawling through the valleys of the shadow of death. No matter where you are Never Ever Give Up. Everyone is going through something. Everyone has the good, the bad and the ugly happen at some point in their life. Everybody feels.... but, no matter what Never Ever Give Up. Adversities, have them. Challenges, have them. Cancer, had that. Defeat, many times, Divorce, been there. Failure, still happening. Injuries, a lot. Problems, normal. But, I am committed. I am determined. I am diligent. I am persistent. I am a pain in the ass. I am persevering. I am tenacious and tough. I am stubborn. I’ve been beaten and battered, have fallen and failed, but I will Never Give Up. On the other side of nearly every battle is gain and growth. I am optimistic because I am relentless. I have a positive attitude because I am a fighter and seek challenge! #nevergiveup #adversity #challenge #fail #fall #lifeisatrip #cancer #divorce #injury #gains #growth #growthmindset #fight #tenacious #tough #stubborn #persistence #painintheass #determination #diligent @theacademymn @cswassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @worldthaiboxingassociation ...

My son Gunnar, the lost dog whisperer, found another dog running in the street. So I have another dog at the townhouse until we find the owner. This is dog #3 he had found and brought over. #lostdog #pug ...

Your ability to get stronger, faster, more explosive is finite. However, the ability to refine and sharpen your technique and timing is endless. Of course, there will be times when you have to go hard, use your strength and speed, but the more technical you are the longer you will be able to be faster and stronger. It doesn’t matter the martial art, being technical is going to make you more effective. Of course, having the ability to apply your techniques in real time is the most important factor of fighting. #technique #ability #strength #speed #timing #effective #fight #fatigue #martialarts #training #bjj #grappling #muaythai #mma @theacademymn @cswassociation @pedrosauer_bjja @worldthaiboxingassociation ...

If you want things to change, you have to change. Seems like a pretty simple concept, but the changing part seems to be the challenge. The biggest change I’ve made in the last few years has been my focus on sleep. I’ve spent most of my life training hard, but for most of my life I did not sleep as much as I should have. A few years ago I went to High Performance Academy Live with @brendonburchard and had a focus shift. I still train and teach a lot, but I started focusing on sleep. It took me about 6 months to figure out how to sleep 7 hours a night. But, once I did my attitude, clarity, focus, productivity... all improved. Because I started to sleep more I have been able to get more done and feel better. Take one area of your life, sleep, diet, create routines...whatever, and focus on improving it. Once you change for the better, take another area. It doesn’t have to be some crazy super change. Sometimes the simplest improvements can make the greatest changes. #change #sleep #time #highperformancehabits #improvement #challenge #focus #clarity #routine #healthylifestyle #energy #vitality @theacademymn @cswassociation @worldthaiboxingassociation @pedrosauer_bjja ...
