Here I am with the armhunter himself: Dan Camarillo. Had a fun two days training with Dan and his students. He is super detailed in his teaching and gave me some amazing pointers on a few techniques that I already know to make them that much better. Even though I have been a black belt myself for well over 4 years at this point, having a guy who is at a much higher level point out small adjustments that need to be made is a pretty amazing thing. I will be using all the things he showed me right away. They are simple details that will tighten my game up and make it even better. Can't wait to come train with Dan again. Thanks for the hospitality @tknarmz . #jiujitsu4life #jiujitsilife #jiujitsuforlife #jiujitsulifestyle #jiujitsulife #jiujitsublackbelt #brazilianjiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsu4life #brazilianjiujitsuforlife #brazilianjiujitsulife #bjj #bjj👊 #bjjlifestyle #bjjlife #bjj4life #bjjblackbelt #camarillojiujitsu #armhunter #dancamarillo #mastermindmartialarts

Big thanks to my friend Tom @riseagainbjj For coming by and training today. Always a humbling experience training with you. I had been close to 5 years since we have last trained together and our lives have gone in separate directions somewhat since we last trained. But that's the magic of jiu jitsu and martial arts in general: it builds lifelong bonds that are hard to break. Can't wait till next time my friend. #bjjforlife #bjj #bjjlifestyle #bjj4life #bjjbuildsbonds #bjjblackbelt #mastermindmartialarts #jiujitsufamily #jiujitsu #jiujitsulifestyle #jiujitsulife #jiujitsu4life #jiujitsublackbelt #brazilianjiujitsufamily #brazilianjiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsu4life #trainingbuddies #trainingpartners #riseagainbjj #brazilianjiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsulife

Here I am working the mitts with the kids yesterday. The skills that these kids have developed has really impressed me. Look at her leg, hand and hip position here, nearly perfect fighting stance. The hand speed has increased as well, which you can tell by the picture. Seeing results like this is why I love what I do so much. Excited to see how good these kids can get. #mastermindmartialarts #kidsclasses #kidsclass #kidskickboxing #kidsmuaythai #kidsmartialarts #kidsboxing #kickboxingkids #muaythaikids #boxingkids #kidsaregettinggood #theyaregettingbetter #futurelooksbright #enjoyingteaching #teachingkids #teachingkidsisrewarding #boxing #kickboxing #muaythai #mittwork

Brazilian jiu jitsu technique of the week # 3: escape from back control. For this escape, keep your hands planted under your chin, and start scooting your body down, then start using your elbows to pry their hooks off. Simple and effective. #jiujitsu4life #jiujitsu #jiujitsulifestyle #jiujitsulife #brazilianjiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsulife #brazilianjiujitsu4life #bjj #bjjlifestyle #bjjlife #bjj4life #bjjblackbelt #jiujitsublackbelt #brazilianjiujitsublackbelt #mastermindmartialarts #techniqueoftheweek #grappling

Here is another video of my friend/student Patrick. He has been consistent in working out as much as he can and he had results to go with it. He is down over 15 pounds in the last few months. He looks tired here cause this was his last of 7 tough rounds on the heavy bag. I am proud of his progress and can't wait to see where he will be in the coming months. #fitnesslifestyle #fitnesslife #fitness #fitnessmotivation #cardio #boxing #heavybag #heavybagwork #heavybagworkout #weightloss #weightlossjourney #progress #fitnessprogress #mastermindmartialarts #goals #setgoalssmashthem #boxingworkout

Brazilian jiu jitsu technique of the week #2: lumberjack sweep from De la riva guard. In experimenting with the De la riva guard, I ended up pulling this sweep off then I realized the practicality of the technique. If you go for the first technique, the footsweep, and opponent steps back to defend it, you can use this sweep ass another option. Foot placement and grips are critical. Come take a class and I'll break it down even more. #brazilianjiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsulife #brazilianjiujitsu4life #jiujitsu #jiujitsulifestyle #jiujitsulife #jiujitsu4life #bjj #bjj👊 #bjjlifestyle #bjjlife #bjj4life #techniqueoftheweek #mastermindmartialarts #mastermindbjj #delariva #delarivaguard #delarivasweeps #sweeps #grappling #guard

Brazilian jiu jitsu technique of the week # 1: sweep from knee shield half guard. The knee shield half guard is a variation of half guard that is becoming more common in today's competition scene. There are submissions, sweeps, and transitions available from here. It is a position worth taking the time to learn. #bjj #bjjlifestyle #bjjlife #bjj4life #bjjblackbelt #mastermindmartialarts #bjjsweeps #jiujitsu #jiujitsulife #jiujitsu4life #jiujitsublackbelt #jiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsulife #brazilianjiujitsu4life #brazilianjiujitsublackbelt #kneeshield #kneeshieldhalfguard #halfguard #halfguardsweep

Brazilian jiu jitsu technique of the week #1: guillotine from side control escape. Hip escaping from side control is one of the most basic and effective ways to escape side control. Adding a guillotine to it makes it better and surprising to your opponents. Even if they manage to escape, you still have other options. #brazilianjiujitsu101 #brazilianjiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsulife #brazilianjiujitsu4life #brazilianjiujitsublackbelt #jiujitsulife #jiujitsulifestyle #jiujitsu4life #jiujitsublackbelt #bjjbasics #bjj #bjj👊 #bjjblackbelt #bjjlifestyle #bjjlife #bjj4life #mastermindmartialarts #mastermindbjj #techniqueoftheweek

Brazilian jiu jitsu technique of the week # 2: smashing guard pass from knee shield. When opponent is using knee shield to create space and attack, this is a great pass to use. Use your body to create and distribute pressure and get the grips first. If this pass is done correctly, it's almost impossible to stop. Come take a class and I'll break it down for you. #brazilianjiujitsu101 #brazilianjiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsulife #brazilianjiujitsu4life #jiujitsu #jiujitsulifestyle #jiujitsu4life #jiujitsulife #jiujitsubasics #mastermindmartialarts #halfguardplayer #halfguard #halfguardpass #pressurepassing #kneeshield #kneeshieldguard

Throwback Thursday: throwback to 2014 and some amazing garage training with my good friend @thomasstokesboyle . Before I opened my own business, I did The majority of my training in garages, either my own or those of others. The training Tommy and I had in his garage that year was some of the best ever. I helped him train for two MMA title fights. I helped him with his kickboxing and jiu jitsu where I could and he showed me a lot of wrestling. I credit the majority of my growth in wrestling to him. He never let me get away with bad technique or being lazy. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love training but I also enjoy training others just as much. In this picture, he and I are working shootboxing drills (strike setups into takedowns). We never got a chance to showcase this skill as much as we would have liked but we will train together more in the future. I can't wait. #throwbackthursday #throwback #tbt #shootboxing #training #teaching #brazilianjiujitsu #bjj #jiujitsu #jiujitsulifestyle #jiujitsulife #wrestling #mma #mmatraining #wrestlingtraining #kickboxing #jiujitsutraining #mastermindmartialarts #garagetraining #garagetrainingisthebesttraining

Brazilian jiu jitsu technique of the week # 2: pendulum sweep from side guard. Another variation on a very basic jiu jitsu sweep. I find this variation a little better than the traditional one because of the trapped arm after the arm drag. Opponent had no base and they are swept easy. #brazilianjiujitsubasics #brazilianjiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsulife #brazilianjiujitsu4life #jiujitsu4life #jiujitsu #jiujitsuforlife #jiujitsilife #jiujitsulifestyle #bjjlifestyle #bjj #bjj👊 #bjjlifestyle #bjjlife #bjjforlife #bjj4life #mastermindbjj #mastermindmartialarts #guard #sweeps

Brazilian jiu jitsu technique of the week # 1: hip bump/sit up sweep from side guard. Variation on a super basic sweep. This is one of the easiest and most effective sweeps in Brazilian jiu jitsu. This variation is a little better because you can trap the far arm in addition to having their other arm trapped. Very hard to stop. #brazilianjiujitsubasics #brazilianjiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsulife #brazilianjiujitsu4life #jiujitsu4life #jiujitsu #jiujitsulifestyle #jiujitsulife #jiujitsu4life #jiujitsuforlife #bjjbasics #bjj #bjj👊 #bjjlifestyle #bjjlifestyle #bjjlife #bjj4life #bjjforlife #techniqueoftheweek #closedguard #sweeps #sweep #closedguardsweep #situpsweep #grappling #mastermindmartialarts

Flashback Friday: flashback to this weekend 5 years ago. I had just finished competing at the copa Pacifica jiu jitsu tournament where I had a decent, but disappointing showing. Winning one match by submission and losing my other match by submission. Highlight of that day though was competing along side my close friend Tom @carlsongracieteam . He and I are very close friends and it's always better to compete along side those that support you the most. He did great that day taking first place. I was a Brown belt here and Tom was a purple. Seems like yesterday. Looking forward to more battles on the mat with Tom there to offer insight and support. #flashback #flashbackfridays #flashbackfriday #mastermindbjj #mastermindmartialarts #carlsongracietemecula #brazilianjiujitsufamily #brazilianjiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsulife #brazilianjiujitsuforlife #brazilianjiujitsu4life #jiujitsu4life #jiujitsu #jiujitsuforlife #jiujitsulifestyle #jiujitsulife #bjjcompetition #bjj #bjj👊 #bjjlifestyle #bjjlife #bjjforlife #bjj4life

Huge congrats to this week's student of the week Eli. Eli has I my been with me a few weeks but his behavior and attitude in class are amazing. He takes direction well and learns very fast. He has a wonderful positive attitude as well. #mastermindmartialarts #mastermind #mastermindkids #kidsbjj #kidsboxing #kids #kidsmartialarts #kidsmuaythai #kids❤️ #kidskickboxing #kidsmartialarts #bjjkids #jiujitsukids #studentoftheweek #kidsclass #kidsclasses #kidsarethefuture

Huge congrats to this week's student of the week Liam. Liam has grown a lot since training with me. He shows improvements constantly and despite being one of the smaller kids in class, he continues to test himself against the bigger kids in class. He has great instincts and once he gets a little older, he is going to be amazing. Can't wait to see it. #mastermindmartialarts #mastermindkids #kidsbjj #kidsboxing #kids #kidsclasses #kidsclass #kidsmuaythai #kidsmartialarts #muaythaikids #kickboxingkids #jiujitsukids #brazilianjiujitsukids #bjjkids #kidsbjj #kidskickboxing

Had an amazing weightlifting session this afternoon. I am steadily closing in on my goal of a 500lb deadlift. Today I took one step closer as I was able to get one clean rep at 486.3lbs. That's a 5lb improvement over last week's deadlift session and a new personal best for me. Part of me wanted to go for 500lbs after this rep but lifting with ones brain and not ones ego is essential. I'd rather wait to hit that goal and get it than hurt myself trying. Regardless, I am within a stone's throw of my goal and an excited to get there soon. #powerlift #powerlifter #powerlifting #powerlifts #powerliftingisamazing #powerliftinglife #deadlifts #deadliftsaremyfavorite #deadliftsfordays #deadlift #deadliftday #deadlifter #goals💯 #goals #500lbclub #mastermindmartialarts #liftingweights #weightlifting #gainz #setgoals #setgoalsandsmashthem

Brazilian jiu jitsu technique of the week #2: side smash/ dope mount pass from butterfly guard. One of the most versatile passes out there is the side smash/ dope mount pass. This version works very well. Just control the head and weave your arm through. Keep pressure on with your body and you'll pass easy. #brazilianjiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsulife #brazilianjiujitsu4life #brazilianjiujitsuforlife #jiujitsu4life #jiujitsu #jiujitsuforlife #jiujitsulifestyle #bjj #bjj👊 #bjjlifestyle #bjjlife #bjjforlife #butterflyguard #butterflyguardpass #sidesmashpass #mastermindmartialarts #mastermindbjj

For the second time in less than a week, I have hit a personal best on a powerlift. Today I was able to hit 271.5 on the bench press for one clean rep ( form could have been better though). My previous best on the bench was 265. Before this rep, I hit 266.5 for 3 reps, so most of my reps today we're well above my previous best. While I am still a distance away from my goal 315lbs, this is a step in the right direction. This shows that my workouts and diet are paying off because I continue to make gains. #gainz #gains #gains💪 #powerlift #powerlifter #powerlifting #benchpress #benchpressing #goals #reachinggoals #strength #gettingstronger #mastermindmartialarts #fitness #weights #liftingweights #lifting #powerliftingmotivation

Brazilian jiu jitsu technique of the week #2: ankle grab sweep from deep butterfly guard. Instead of the traditional butterfly guard sweep where you have one hook in on each leg, with this one, you have both legs under one of your opponents legs. This works particularly well when opponents stand above you. #brazilianjiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsu4life #brazilianjiujitsuforlife #jiujitsu4life #jiujitsu #jiujitsuforlife #jiujitsulifestyle #jiujitsulife #bjj #bjj👊 #bjjlifestyle #bjjlife #bjj4life #bjjforlife #mastermindmartialarts #techniqueoftheweek #butterflyguard #butterflyguardsweeps #grappling

Big congrats to this week's student of the week Levi. I'm very proud of him. He's come a long way in the time he had been here and martial arts seems to bring out the best in him. He excels in every class He attends and I am very excited to see where he will be in the coming months. #mastermindmartialarts #mastermindkids #kidsbjj #kidsboxing #kids #kids❤️ #kidsmartialarts #kidsclasses #kidsclass #kidsgrappling #kidsbjj #kidsmuaythai #kidskickboxing #bjjkids #jiujitsukids #kickboxingkids #futurelooksbright #martialarts #brazilianjiujitsukids

Here is another video of my friend/student Patrick. He has been training pretty consistently lately and it shows here. His hand speed and power are noticeably better here. He also down another 10 pounds or so from the last video I posted of him. Can't wait to see what kind of shape he'll be in in another few months. #mastermindmartialarts #boxinglife #boxing #boxingtraining #boxing👊 #heavybagwork #heavybagworkout #handspeed #power #fitnesslifestyle #fitnesslife #weightloss #inshape #boxingfit #boxingfitness

Here is @_earthgirl__xo_ working some pads after kickboxing class. After an hour of hard training, she wanted to do a bit more work. Her kicks have more speed and power than they ever have and her hands are sharp too. She is fatigued in this video but yet the technique remains solid . when fatigue sets in, technique is the first thing to go, and yet hers is still there. Spend the time and develop your martial arts techniques correctly. They will always be there for you when you need them. #mastermindmartialarts #kickboxinggirls #kickboxing #kickboxinggirl #tiredbutstillgoing #muaythaigirlsrule #muaythai #muaythaigirl #muaythaigirls #kickboxingchicks #fatiguemakescowardsofusall #traininghard #tiredbutstillgoing #padwork #muaythaipads #kicks #kicksandpunches

Brazilian jiu jitsu technique of the week #2: over/under pass variation from butterfly guard. This pass is one of my favorites. It is available from many positions, but just butterfly guard. The pressure from this pass is tremendous, even though you can't really see it in the video. But definitely a technique worth practicing. Very hard pass to stop once you get good at it. #brazilianjiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsulife #brazilianjiujitsu4life #brazilianjiujitsuforlife #jiujitsu4life #jiujitsu #jiujitsulifestyle #jiujitsulife #jiujitsublackbelt #bjj #bjj👊 #bjjlifestyle #bjjlife #bjj4life #bjjforlife #butterflyguard #guardpass #mastermindmartialarts

Technique of the week for the week of March 13: quarter nelson sweep from butterfly guard. This is a sweep that I discovered on my own and works well when opponents try to pull away or stack you when you have them in butterfly guard. Hard to stop if done correctly. #brazilianjiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsublackbelt #brazilianjiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsulife #brazilianjiujitsu4life #brazilianjiujitsuforlife #jiujitsu4life #jiujitsu #jiujitsulifestyle #jiujitsulife #jiujitsuforlife #jiujitsublackbelt #bjj #bjj👊 #bjjlifestyle #bjjlife #bjj4life #bjjforlife #techniqueoftheweek #mastermindmartialarts #butterflyguard #butterflyguardsweep #butterflyguardsweeps #grappling

Brazilian jiu jitsu technique of the week #2: shin surf pass from butterfly guard. This is a simple and effective way to pass the butterfly guard. There is quite a bit of pressure on this pass, which is why it is so effective. #brazilianjiujitsu #brazilianjiujitsulifestyle #brazilianjiujitsulife #brazilianjiujitsu4life #jiujitsuforlife #jiujitsu4life #jiujitsulifestyle #jiujitsulife #jiujitsuforlife #bjj #bjj👊 #bjjlifestyle #bjjlife #bjj4life #bjjforlife #techniqueoftheweek #mastermindmartialarts #mastermindbjj #guardpass #butterflyguard #pressurepassing
