    It didn't happen during training, so it wasn't a sudden occurrence during sparring, but I think it's a combination of an already tense lower body (I've had an abdominal muscle tear for weeks already), my style of ultra tight closed guard, and lower body exercises.

    Hope you get better soon.

    I totally agree with the whole training partner thing. One of the downsides to training where I train now, is that we don't spend as much time on each technique as we probably should (the reason being that we have a new instructor every night). I've been trying to remedy this by finding training partners who are interested in drilling, but I've had zero luck. Everyone just wants to roll.
    I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.

    I'm glad to hear it's not related to that neck injury you suffered a few weeks ago. Say what you will about hernias, they are relatively easy to correct surgically and there are no continuing effects. Unlike disk injuries.

    BTW I wouldn't completely discount the effects of people sitting on us. My favorite self-created line - "I thought I was going to spew my guts out my anus" isn't far from the truth, and a hernia is the actual (potential) natural result of lot of pressure on our stomach/abdomen.

    Oh well. Maybe an enforced period of absence from the mat will let you digest the awesome number of moves you've acquired in your rapid ascent from newbie to purple. Make the best of it.

    Just got back from the doctor. He thankfully found no hernia, but there is inflammation so he suspects a pulled or torn groin muscle. He told me to take another week off and prescribed an anti-inflammatory. This is good news since it means I don't need surgery and the months of recovery.

    Is that one week of ordinary person time (I'll be back on the court in a couple of weeks) or one week of bjj time ("nothing serious? great. I can go back tomorrow. I'll just roll light....").

    Perhaps I was too subtle. The donation link shows up in almost everything I post of Aesopian's because so far, Bullshido is making a pretty poor showing behind all the other major grappling forums. I'm not saying you guys have to pay him, but maybe there's a reason he's not posting here much anymore?

    If you like what he's done for you, think about sending him some money. When I found out he hurt his neck, I donated. We compare notes about BJJ pretty much daily. I help him test and proofread his website. He's never asked me for money. I still donated. Why? Because I honestly believe he is leading a revolutionary (and evolutionary) charge in the BJJ world. I believe in what he's doing. You'd pick up the tab if your friend was short on cash, right? So why is it okay to pay for someone's beers and not help someone who has helped you pay their medical bills?
