Koryu Uchinadi

Excellent YouTube channel introducing fundamental principles of Koryu Uchinadi, one of the most interesting developments in the Karate world…at once deeply traditional, but which has also fully integrated the lessons of MMA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UsRtbvukt_0&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR3_Vb9RtAULjbyRX7K2U15qKye3uBI99W8ZEu5rN8PGmowtRBXnixPSJc4

Practical Tai Chi

Nice article. From what little exposure I’ve had to it, there’s a lot more to the Practical Tai Chi style than slow form practice and push hands http://5elementstaichi.co.uk/tai-chi-self-defence/

Powerlifting, strongman and jiu-jitsu

Interesting interview with a renowned powerlifter and strongman who made the transition to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu …some useful information about balancing training and conditioning https://fightcampconditioning.com/podcast/chad-wesley-smith-2/?fbclid=IwAR1lb-9Gqvfwrp20bMqYRwc81cC9X2a-PfYDH_udm3zucBfev0t-v8GarxE

Be water, my friend

I came across this book Fluid BJJ on Amazon 
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fluid-BJJ-Scrawny-Ge…/…/ref=sr_1_1…. The author is a third degree black belt under Renzo Gracie and Jon Danaher, and trains with GSP and Firas Zahabi. In the intro he says: “I believe water drilling has been instrumental in my ability to train seven days a week while continuing to improve my skill set through: mental (imagery) rehearsal which allows me to build up muscle memory and perfect technique while having an ‘easy’ day; repetition/ drilling that does not severely tax my body; and water qualities which improve overall fitness and lower the gravity or training partner’s pressure on my joints”…OK some of it looks like water aerobics, but maybe it’s worth trying https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ziAYV8ayk9M
