    Connection Rio - August 25th blog with No-Gi fight

    Wed, 2010-08-25 06:46 — mad jack the hat

    Hey people, this week has mostly been training and beach. Hmmmmmm not a bad life. We have been working on holes in my game, before the Novo Leblon Cup and had lots of people to train with due to the house being full.
    The sun has come out in Rio and we have all made the most of it: tanning oil, sun cream, deckchairs, and food.

    Connection Rio - August 2nd, 2010 (Watching Rio Open, training again, eating cakes, sweets, and saying goodbye to good people)

    Gordo winning the Rio Open is a good way to start this blog I think with the support of the whole team Gordo showcased his solid jiu-jitsu by working his way through hes division like a knife through butter and not changing his facial expression, until he won the finals and held his son in his hands. Everyone was so hyped up to watch Gordo's fights. He's a role model inside and outside the gym and a family guy who lives life only to be happy and pass on knowledge. (I will post a video of his fights below).

    Hey humans, Sunday was quite an epic day, as we all decided to hike up Pedra de Gavea. It was Gordo's idea, so a bunch of people from the house and a few from the academy woke up early, ready to take on the rock. My alarm went of at 7:30 a.m.

    Hey people, thoght I'd start by saying bollox, it may seem strange to start a blog with that, but everyone in Brazil asks me: Hey Jack, what do you think of England in the World Cup and my reply has been bollox! Those guys get payed in a month more than I have earned in my whole 7 years of pro MMA and they played like bollox. I support Brazil now, but I really would like them out the World Cup also so things would go back normal, less horns, and silly wigs.

    Connection Rio - June 18th, 2010 (Mad Jack The Hat)

    Hey girls n' guys, got alot to talk about in this blog. Lots of exciting stuff I've been doing and will be doing. I'll start with the stuff I will be doing. Rio Open is on the 22nd of July and I see this as a good time to smash some purple belts and let everyone know I need my brown belt (even though I love the purple belt). I'm fighting at 76 kg (167 lbs) with the gi, so I have a little weight to loose. Last week I was 83 kg (182 lbs). Yesterday's weight check saw me at 77 kg (170 lbs), so it's coming off pretty easy so far.

    Connection Rio - June 8th, 2010 (full house update)

    Tue, 2010-06-08 05:57 — mad jack the hat

    Well the house is full and really lively. The arrival of Gerbil (some of you may know him from his sherdog thread), Nial, Bridget, Kathy I AM TRULY SORRY ITS NOT KATHY ITS Christie (very sorry) , the New Zealand couple, and Pierce has given us a full house and looks to be a good one. With my other knee on the mend and me training around it, I'm getting closer to my 6 week training camp for my MMA fight at Jungle Fight. My Muay Thai classes have started generating some income with a few privates here and there.

    The house has pretty much been the same same people and same training going on with no new people so far, but we have a lot of people coming this month. So to start off my training going good, the team are all helping each other ( ) << have

    Connection Rio - May 14th, 2010 Update - No Distractions

    Fri, 2010-05-14 13:06 — mad jack the hat

    Sorry, you need to install flash to see this content.

    Just an update on a few things that are going on. Firstly (and I'm knocking on wood as I type), my knee is good and I'm back training on the squad. The departure of Mike and Dave has left our side of the house empty, so the latest arrival Anthony, has been given a bed. Also, kickboxer Danielle Ackerman from Holland is here to brush up on her tan and BJJ and Anthony is training hard and promises not to be a pussy. Already he has proved he's serious by landing at 10 and training at 12, straight off an 18 hour flight ...............good job.
