I asked how could i imoprove my speed, you answered by basically telling me to replace it. I cant do that. I want to be a great fighter and I want to feel safe, no matter were I am. How can improve my speed.

PS. I didn't say being 13 was an excuse. Far from it. I was just telling you.

To increase your speed, your body needs to get used to the movements, muscle memory if ya like, so just drill certain techniques until you can do them wihtout even thinking about it, then build em up into bigger drills, and then when you come across any attack, you will have all the smaller techniques drilled so well they'll fly out in any order required.

i'm sure no one on this forum condones the use of drugs when training and am sure no one knows how to 'improve your speed'.

Suplement your jujitsu by training in a chinese based striking art like Wing Chun, Lau Gar, Chinese Kempo or Bruce Lee's famed Jeet-Kune-Do (which basically mixes the others). If taught properly, the training methods incorporate relaxation techniques, proper breathing technique, explosive energy release (chi-development), etc, all aimed at increasing 'fast twitch muscle' response....essentially speed with focus, which I think is what you appear to be lacking.

buy better drugs to start with and then you won't need to improve them

Always thought guys like Dan Innosanto, Simon Lau, Nigel Benn (trained chinese striking under Dave Lea to improve his boxing hand speed), and more recently Rick Young, Peter Consterdine and Karl Tanswell were pretty quick movers...maybe im wrong?

Anyway chaps...moving on...I organised our first local MMA training session yesterday, 3 hours intensive in a small room at a local community centre (24 mat area). We covered standup (striking, parrying, closing down), clinch & takedown, gaining position for 'ground & pound', defence to g&p from below, & finally mixing in some of the bjj stuff we've picked up from you guys, watching videos & my limited judo knowledge, into submission finishing (knee locks, heel hooks, achilies locks, front & rear 'naked' chokes & arm bars).

Great day, well be doing more of the same and if we can get a decent local interest going (only 7 of us this first time), then I'll organise a bigger room and sound out some invites to others to have a session with us or better still come and give us a bit of tuition... hope you & Ross will oblige sometime Andy?....you may also gain something yourselves out of Daves 'stand-up' boxing type stuff...he's a bit of a mover and develops explosive power in his technique!

can i ask where you learnt your ground and pound and your ground and pound defence. "Bad weather all the time"

Learnt through experimentation + watching Brazilian Vale Tudo actual fight footage, (Alexandro, Pele,etc). We practice the attacking by gloving the man on top and the man underneath wearing focus pads / coaching gloves which can be pounded on (rather than guy underneath keep getting battered whilst practicing). Then reverse by the padded guy underneath defending the shots by parrying & clinching (and getting shots back in where possible) to gain space to adjust positioning for a reversal (guard sweep, mount roll-off, or turn into arm bar).

Basically just playing with ideas & testing them under 'controlled for safety' though as realistic as possible conditions (bit like I saw Royce doing with you on the seminar when he had mount and was 'playfully slapping' you to show where you had holes in your defence.

How else would you 'learn' G&P? If you have better ways only too glad to listen? "Its not the size of the dog in the fight, its the size of the fight in the dog"

ground and pound is like any part of the fight game, there are techniques and mechanics which makes some better than other moves.

royce wasnt showing me holes in my defence, he was making me keep going when tired, a very important part of training.

steve i would love to show you some stuff, head over in the next few weeks as ill be doing lots of it anyway. "Bad weather all the time"
