Sounds like it's time for him to get his brown belt.
Yep, sounds like it's time for a promotion.
Congrats Jayson!! We're proud to have you and look forward to more great things from you.
if that dusnt shout promotion i dont know what does
Wow! Good job, that is a **** load of fighting. Obviously his conditioning is great! RNC against blackbelt!! Nice.
Yes. Jayson trained his ass off prepping for the trials. We grapple a lot during our gi and no-gi class. Jayson would roll and train during class and then stay after class and roll/condition for 2-3 10 minute rounds with a new guy coming in every 2-3 minutes. He did this probably 4 days a week for the 6 weeks leading up to the trials. He is also one of the primary instructors at ATT-Orlando so he was teaching the no-gi, gi, and MMA classes as well.
We ran Jayson through the damn ringer in training. I can almost guarantee he had a much tougher time training and conditioning with us than he did at the trials; simply because we have been rolling with Jay for years and know his strengths and how he rolls so we would focus entirely on the very very small weaknesses he has. He is, without a doubt, one of the best grapplers in the country.
Landing in New Jersey Thursday morning he was at about 160lbs. He had been dieting for a couple of weeks in anticipation of the cut; the following day, Friday, at 2pm, he weighed in at 143.5. The amount of discipline it takes to cut like that is extraordinary, let alone cut healthy and be in shape and wave off the fog of cutting to be able to compete like he did the following day.
Awesome, truly awesome. I can't wait to get him ready for Spain and see what he does at Worlds in September.
