I will make this note here. I had an altercation a couple of weeks ago. Someone's temper [not mine] exploded and they wanted to get physical. It's been some years, but all the training and 'mind games' and fitness stuff was intact.
I was not scratched nor damaged. Their fists/forearms were sore and bruised. The old Wing Chun obstructions become offensive tools and this is what happened. Then I got behind to RNC and Chicken Wing and sat them down till cooler heads prevailed. I was very calm afterwards that no damage was done.. no blades, no guns, no impact weapons. The bystanders were a bit frightened and shocked that it didn't look like a movie fight,...
Figured I'd put it here. It's best to be transparent.

Curious as to the context? Was this a stranger, friend, or acquaintance?

Acquaintance who had a history of tough guy talk. I just questioned their bullshit since most of it described scenarios that would involve felonies,,.. assault. So they guessed their 50 extra pounds would be the defining factor in dealing with me. It was just bad judgement on their part [lifetime] and I can't stand bullshitters misleading people. I have a hard time walking away without shooting my mouth off.
I need a bit more ego management,.. but no big deal. As per cue.. when shit hit the fan,... everything happened in slow motion.

Floro Fighting System material and Eischens Yoga.
Working on the 'punch thrust' that Ray is showing lately. Supinated, Neutral, Pronated jab results in three different cuts for the machete or the knife. Adding in the lunge/Dempsey Drop Step,.. etc through the five primary angles.
Ray had BJJ veteran, John Will teach a workshop based on 2 on 1 and different tie ups that occur in his system for takedowns, clinch, etc. This would be most interesting.

Despite the dog days of summer, the evenings have been fairly dry and about 80 degrees, which is cool. We are walking more with the pooch and it's adding up.. not hard, but feels good, improves sleep, etc. That's above and beyond training.
More Floro Fighting System today. Working on lunging, initial speed, drop step and relaxed footwork. The "punch" strike with supination, pronation and neutral alignment is interesting.
Back to the strength and conditioning tomorrow. I'll be training with an early client as well.

Trained with early client. Earlier than usual, which I hate.. but such is life.
Working with material of "12 Gates" that is Francis Fong derived. If you can see the boxing, self defense and weapons applications within this framework,.. it is a good thing. My scuffle the other week exposed this methodology which is kind of hardwired into me. So I'm going to put it on paper and play with it.

Warm up and stretch today.
Used 25lb Clubs to do some swings for hinging... grip.
Stretching went OK. I went into the McKenzie position without a total lower body warm up.
Relaxed here but hip flexors spasm occurred, pulling on L5 area a bit. Just breathed, took my time to relax and let it pass, I could feel the tension up into the hip basin near the iliac crest... I did some deep tissue with thumbs in that area and focused on firing the glutes to relax the hip flexors.. This worked. Took some Advil with black coffee. Not a big deal, but figuring this stuff out helps me and hopefully others.

This week was a bit of a wash. Helping a friend move from his gallery to an artist loft and from his warehouse to the loft as well.
Daily as always.. walking several miles, stretching and some swimming.
I'm starting to measure and add a gradient to the swimming. I usually spend more time stretching in the water and kicking, which I like, but no sense not using the time to work on LSD endurance.
Strengthwork--> Buying some more crap plates [1"] for the Craigslist bar for some volume deadlifting. Set of 3-5 and a build up to 10 or more with 60 seconds rest.
Pushing will be dips on rings.. then finishing with JS Bands for overhead range of motion.
Pulling will be weighted pull ups
