    bro , how old are you?
    I'm missing a week of training because of injuries
    These were old college basketball injuries na bumalik lang during rolling
    Injuries healed overnight when I was younger hehe now they dont seem to heal at all
    I'm not that old , but I'm beat up playing a lot of sports
    I wish I strtaed this when I was younger

    im old too...im 36 years old bro. when i compete in tournaments, i end up in the masters/seniors division. hehehe. but thats ok. for as long as you enjoy jiujitsu just continue doing it and dont let age stop you. i know some people even start at a very late age in life, even at 50's. yeah.
    When i was in high school, i studied shotokan karate and i the highest rank i got was 1st class brown belt, almost black but i got tired of it. going back to those younger days, me too, i wish i started jiujitsu at a young age. i should've been a black belt by now or maybe have won major championships, who knows. we can never know our potential at this point in time of our lives since we're already seniors na. But, when i roll with younger guys, teenagers and those in their 20's, sometimes, i beat them up using gulang and tactics and it feels gooooood..:supergrin: however, the only disadvantage i have is i gas out earlier than the younger caucasian guys. my brazilian friend who is a jiujitsu prodigy himself, told me that if i only i had that endurance and stamina i could be the tasmanian devil himself on the mats. he calls me "taz". This guy submits everyone in our class. he's only 31 but he's that deadly. I roll with him a lot to gauge myself although i tap out a lot against him. he catches me a lot with my favorite choke, the bow and arrow choke. hehehe.i think i submitted him only twice for the years that i have rolled with him. he;s won several major championships including the american nationals. hehehehe. he's that goood.
    I wish i can bring my friend in the philippines so he can teach my brother and friends as well.

    yes, during sparring sessions. i remember i rolled with this tough jiujitsu brownbelt, ana cordeiro who won several major championships including the worlds, she was so goood. I was playing my open guard and doing my best to prevent her from passing. my dela riva guard is tricky but then ana just went pass by it as if it were nothing. she's that technical and it was a humbling experience.

    in some tournaments, specially the youngsters, they mix up both men and women and a lot of times, women win first place. take for example the daughter of my instructor, she was the only female in the bracket and she defeated all men. So, overall, jiujitsu, is both effective for both men and women, young and old. it molds itself to one's body.

    im sure there would be a senior's division. hey guys, malapit lapit na rin ang pan-asian jiujitsu tournament, may 2nd yata diyan sa may sm mall of asia if im not mistaken. i might go and watch coz i will be on vacation this april to may. as for me, still undecided whether to compete for the pan ams this march at carson city but im still stuck at 170 lbs. i wanna compete in the lightweight division, so i have to cut weight to make it 165 plus 2 lbs of gi weight. :supergrin:

    sandbagging, really? like how long does it take for one to be promoted to blue belt in the philippines? coz in the u.s. under the new IBJJF rules on promotion, they follow a certain amount of time for a person to be promoted to a higher level provided they attend class at least twice a week and show some level of proficiency/technicality and if you win a lot in tournaments, now, thats the fastest way to earn promotions. I have a good friend here who is brazilian who is really really good, been training in mma for 4 years before deciding to get into formal jiujitsu training. I was ahead of him by several months but then he's that good, winning the gracie nationals, american nationals, he just went pass by me and now he's 4 stripes and is due for promotion for purple belt. he's currently ahead of me by just 1 stripe as a blue belt. they still promote here based on championships won but i think , only a few academies sandbag. i didnt realize that they do sandbag people there. Even the great Rodrigo gracie dont believe in sandbagging anymore.
    just my thoughts...:cool:
