Had a great time last weekend training with my coach and friend Tim Cartmell. As always solid basics were emphasized with realistic scenarios and varying degrees of uncooperative drilling. It seems almost uncanny how every time I train with Tim in Portland he covers something that is an integral part of my game, such as this visit where we worked a figure four grip as you are being taken down with a single leg.

It was a great reminder that I have been blessed with solid teachers such as Tim Cartmell, Mike Martello, Hu Xi Lin, Brian Johnson, and Jeff Davidson. Check out the pic below and you will see the level of training Tim Cartmell brings to the table as MMA professional Pat "Bam Bam" Healy even joined us on the Saturday sessions. Tim remains one of the most underrated martial arts instructors accessible to the public.
