In an effort to “efficiencize” my life and training, I made some changes following my last fight. I found myself spending more time on the road than in the gym. Thanks to a variety of good people, I’ve found a nice groove.

I split my training between AMA Fight Club in NJ and Balance Studios in Philly. Thanks to Amtrak, my commute has been made much less stressful. I’m able to maximize my training while minimizing the toll (literally and figuratively) of the road. I’ve been concentrating on refining the small aspects of my game, both standup and ground work.

After a year or so of “I really want to try hot yoga”, I’ve started doing hot yoga. To say I underestimated its intensity would be an understatement. Prior to my first session, I had a nice fat fasnacht and a swiss cake roll. Bad idea. Four classes later, I ¬†am in the swing of things.

That all being said, I want to send a big THANK YOU to all of Team Spaniard. AMA, Balance, Sheetz, IAVA, Mother’s Cantina, Woot, Kranich’s, Al’s, The Summit and many more.
