I've been staying away completely for two weeks now. Chatting with my coach last night I inquired if there's any underground rolls going down with a select few members so I'm waiting to hear. You guys just avoiding it? Rolling with a couple friends?

Had a couple of private clients that I've rolled with, other than that I'm just doing solo movement drills

I am still recovering from my hand surgery, so I am not rolling at all. Lifting in my garage gym and running like a madman.

I've not been going for a week or so. Just don't want to be the one to spread it to someone vulnerable.

Haven't been to my gym in months but all the gyms around here have closed up despite no known cases yet.

I've been planning a basement renovation and after this breakout I'm even more convinced I need to find some mats for my basement

Sounds like most of us are in the same boat. I'm two weeks no rolls and gym closed. I'll probably pick a fight with my son on days off to keep sharp. He's getting crafty.

Be great to just work on movement drills at home eh? Let the body heal up and get limber again.

Yes it would.... Movement and flow drills are the essence of good Jiu Jitsu
I love the analogy of them being Lego blocks. Put the right moobments together and you can create something great.

My friend invited me to his house to roll, he has mats and private gym but I don’t want to risk catching this at all. My elderly grandmother lives with us so I’m thinking about her

It’s sucks because before this I was out for four weeks due to hurting my knee, I went back for three weeks, was getting ready to start hitting the comps again and then this corona shit happened

callisthenics, stretching and cardio for me most days until it’s safe to go back. Might as well use this time to get stronger and fitter.

ONLY thing I don’t miss is washing my Gi’s lol

Anybody working out at home as well?

I hear a lot about kettlebell workouts and I'm thinking now would be a good time to start.

I can't really make out the pictures. That's got to be Helio in the middle.
Is that Maeda on the left?
Right not sure so I guess this is byyyyeeee.
Helio in the middle.

Dan Gable on the right.

Farmer Burns on the left.
Farmer Burns is my man...those guys are all up there because they were as good at sharing their knowledge as they were at executing it.

One fun Farmer Burns story - He trained Frank Gotch, and he and Frank went to England for a wrestling tour. While they were there, they trained with a bunch of Judokas. There's a letter from Frank Gotch's wife where she complains about how difficult it is to blood of the judokas out of the her husband's training gear.

Kettle bells are my jam, I use them a lot. I do a lot of movement drills too right now to stay loose. I've given my comp team an at home circuit to do, and make them do it in a time trial for prizes (winning free private lessons), and I do that circuit too. Everything helps

Frank Gotch?

If memory serves he was the second guy in the lineage of this belt:
